Our Taco House Cooperative

The Clinic has worked with the founders of Our Taco House Cooperative for two years, educating them about the requirements under Texas law for worker cooperatives and helping get them ready to launch their business. Our Taco House Cooperative is a worker-owned cooperative taco restaurant started by two former employees of a very popular Tex-Mex restaurant in East Austin. Our Taco House Cooperative will provide delicious, affordable tacos to Austin residents and will create jobs that enable workers to support themselves and own and govern their own business. The Clinic assisted the owners with creating a Texas Cooperative Association, including articles of incorporation and bylaws; prepared an employment manual; provided intellectual property counseling; and prepared other legal documents specific to worker cooperatives. Our Taco House Cooperative was recently featured in an article by the Austin Eater: https://austin.eater.com/2017/8/22/16180294/our-taco-house-co-op-tamale-house-3
