With Excitement allow me to introduce to you today's guest Owner of Rocco's Tacos and Tequila Bar, Rocco Mangel. Born and raised in New York, Rocco grew up in the restaurant business. First, studying his grandfather’s prowess as general manager of New York City’s famed Copacabana Nightclub. Rocco continued to develop in the business, opening his first Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar in 2007 on Clematis Street in West Palm Beach, Florida.
Nine years and countless trips to Mexico later, the well-researched visionary sits atop the Rocco’s Tacos & Tequila Bar empire, as co-owner and managing partner of locations including Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale, Palm Beach Gardens, West Palm Beach and Orlando, Florida along with a 2014 New York homecoming in Brooklyn.
Rocco’s commitment to success extends beyond his restaurants and into the communities they serve. Over the last four years, he has raised more than $100,000 for breast cancer research with his annual ”Taco, Tequila & Tatas Tuesdays.” He has also contributed time and energy to various philanthropic causes including ALS Association, Leukemia/Lymphoma Society; JustWorld International; YMCA's Polo for Pedro fundraiser; Vanilla Ice’s Toys for Tots fundraiser; Habitat for Humanity; Genesis Work Dogs; Tri-County Humane Society; March of Dimes; Palm Beach Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, to name a few.
When Rocco is not at one of his restaurants or planning the next phase of Rocco’s Tacos expansion, he loves to travel and spend time with his family, especially his baby girl Charley.
