Local Shawano resident, Jeremy Vollmar, was the lucky winner! He visited the Taco John’s located in Fox River Mall, ordered the Super Burrito Combo, entered the code online and won $50,000!

“I was at work when I found out that I had won,” Vollmar said. “I didn’t think it was real. I had never won anything before! This was actually my first time visiting Taco John’s and I absolutely loved it. I knew I wanted to revisit even before I won this incredible prize.”

Taco John’s has been serving bigger, bolder, better flavors since 1969, and will host a check presentation at Taco John’s in Wittenberg on Oct. 10 at 7 p.m.

“We value the ongoing support of our guests and wanted to take this opportunity to give back,” said Alan Wright, Taco John’s Vice President for Marketing. “That’s why we decided to celebrate our 50th anniversary by giving birthday presents to our guests throughout July and August. We are thrilled to have a winner and can’t wait to present the $50,000 check to Jeremy!”
