Taco Cabana Introduces “No Antibiotics Ever” Chicken

Continuing its dedication to quality and freshness, Taco Cabana implements the NAE standard for 100-percent antibiotic-free chicken at all Texas locations.

SAN ANTONIO, TX (May 14, 2018) — Taco Cabana continues to set a bold pace for its 2018 Strategic Renewal Plan with its latest commitment to customers: to completely eliminate the use of antibiotics from all chicken on its menu. 

As of May 14, 2018, Taco Cabana fulfilled this promise, by fully integrating the “No Antibiotics Ever” (NAE) program to 100-percent of its chicken products at all Texas locations.

“In our Strategic Renewal Plan, we made the commitment to improve all aspects of our business,” explained Richard Stockinger, President and CEO of Fiesta Restaurant Group, Inc. “NAE chicken is another promise kept.”

NAE chicken provides assurance that no antibiotics were ever introduced through feed, water sources or any other means during the life of the bird. To ensure this, Taco Cabana’s chicken producers are only those approved and certified as “USDA Process Verified for NO Antibiotics Ever” by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).  

“Each and every day, we strive to maintain our community’s faith in the quality and safety of our products. We are confident that being a proactive adopter of the NAE chicken program helps achieve that,” added Stockinger.
