Job Details

Founded in Brooklyn in 2016, King David Tacos is a woman-owned CPG / Hospitality hybrid food company, focused on making a better on-the-go breakfast. Our breakfast tacos are critically-acclaimed, and we have established the breakfast taco market in New York.


We operate out of our 11,000 sf HQ in Prospect Heights. We produce all of our ingredients and menu items daily, and then package our breakfast tacos for grab’n’go distribution. We are a vertically-integrated business, and we sell our breakfast tacos across Retail (brick & mortar, mobile, catering) and Wholesale (foodservice) channels. Our first airport location will be opening this summer at LGA in the new Delta Terminal, marking the start of our expansion in the institutional B2B channel.

We value our partners and customers, and offer them a better, convenient breakfast without compromising taste or health.

Part of King David Tacos

King David Tacos is a woman-owned and Brooklyn-founded company. We specialize in grab’n’go breakfast tacos, made for everyday enjoyment with simple ingredients.

We started as a small catering operation in 2016, opened our Taco Carts in landmark parks across the city, and now distribute our tacos to over 70 Retail Partner locations across the city daily. We operate out of our HQ at 611 Bergen Street in Prospect Heights, which is also home to our production facility and first brick and mortar.

Founder Liz Solomon Dwyer hails from Austin, TX, and knew that the convenience and wholesomeness of the breakfast taco was missing in the New York morning routine. We have established the category and our goal is to be the best grab’n’go breakfast in NYC, and beyond. We value our partners and customers, and offer them a better, convenient breakfast without compromising taste or health.
