Taco Mayo remodels stores, menu

Taco Mayo's reinvention to a “fresh mex” restaurant continues with the reopening of its 17th location to feature the new products, including create-your-own burritos, nachos and salads. The Harrah location at 19635 NE 23 has undergone an extensive kitchen renovation. Remodeled stores make fresh tortillas, chips and guacamole in-house and feature a Coca-Cola Freestyle machine, which offers more than 125 drink choices. “The new Fresh Mex Taco Mayo has been a huge success over the last 18 months as we continue to re-image many of our restaurants around the state,” said Randy Earhart, chairman and CEO of Oklahoma City-based Taco Mayo.

Clothing resale shops expand

A chain of clothing resale shops is expanding in the metro, with a new Once Upon A Child opening next month at Pennsylvania Avenue and Memorial Road and a Plato's Closet planned for Norman. The Once Upon A Child, which sells children's clothing, toys and baby items, is open to buy from the community and has set a tentative open date for Oct. 18. Lease negotiations are continuing for the Norman Plato's Closet, which focuses on clothing for teens. Parent company Winmark, which owns both brands, also operates Play It Again Sports and Music Go Round.
