Snapshot: Founder of Taco Tonto's Steps Down
Maureen Gartland started popular eatery inside Kent bar
After more than 20 years, Maureen Gartland is saying goodbye to the taco business.
Gartland, founder of Taco Tonto's, turned over the keys this week to the popular downtown Kent lunch spot after founding it inside a Kent bar in the late 1980s. She's turning the keys over to Kevin and Emily Yohn and John and Jill Crino. Kevin Yohn has been a long time employee at the restaurant.
Gartland was kind enough to provide the history about her entrepreneurial endeavor selling burritos that blossomed into a full-service restaurant. You can read it by clicking on the file attached to this story.
