TacoLu Recognized at Web.com PGA Tour Championship
Web.com, the umbrella sponsor of the Web.com Tour and a leading provider of a full range of Internet services and online marketing solutions for small businesses, has selected Jacksonville, Florida local business TacoLu as a 2017 recipient of the inaugural Web.com Small Business of the Tournament Award. The Web.com Small Business of the Tournament Award honors one small business from each U.S. Web.com Tour tournament location for its community involvement and partnership with its local tournament.
“It takes an entire community uniting together to create a Web.com tour event,” said David L. Brown, chairman, chief executive officer and president, Web.com. “We want to acknowledge and celebrate those small businesses across the country that impact their communities and help make Web.com Tour tournaments a success.”
Debbie and Don Nicol, owners and founders of TacoLu, were recognized at the Web.com Tour Championship on Sunday, October 1 at the Atlantic Beach Country Club, where the tournament is held. They opened TacoLu in 2008 and despite the economic crisis Debbie and Don were able to grow the taco stand into a local favorite. Don and Debbie were chosen for their dedication to the Jacksonville community and to the Web.com Tour Championship the past four years. In fact, TacoLu partnered with Engine 15 and the Web.com Tour Championship to raise money for first responders of Hurricane Irma.
TacoLu – named after the Nicols’ daughter, Lucy – is a Mexican restaurant located in Jacksonville Beach. It first opened in 2008 amid the financial crisis, but despite the overall state of the economy at the time, it thrived. The restaurant moved to a larger location within five years of opening, and it has earned a loyal following as well as national acclaim (TacoLu was featured on the Travel Channel show, “Food Paradise.”).
2017 Small Business of the Web.com Tour
In December, the story of TacoLu will be featured in an online video gallery alongside Small Business of the Tournament Award recipients from each U.S. Web.com Tour tournament location. Viewers will be invited to watch and vote for their favorite; the business with the most votes will win the 2017 Web.com Small Business of the Tour Award and $25,000 in Web.com products and services.
