¡Magnifico! Just in time for Cinco de Mayo and their Cinco de Savings tortilla promotion, La Tortilla Factory announces a zany, new Facebook photo contest, “Cinco de Mustache”.

Beginning on April 1, fun lovers--mustachio-ed or not--should visit La Tortilla Factory’s Facebook page and upload a photo of themselves sporting their best mustache. No mustache? ¡No problema! Do your tastes run to the delicately Dali-esque, or are you more the full beard freestyle type? Whatever your style, grow it, glue it, tape it, or paint it on—anything goes. An up-to-date Facebook gallery of mustache photos will inspire you to artistic greatness.

“Cinco de Mustache” fans and contestants are encouraged to check back between April 15-25 to vote for their favorite mustache from among the cinco semi-finalists. The winner will be announced on April 26 and prizes will be delivered in time for the Cinco de Mayo festivities.

The grand prize winner will receive a Cinco De Mayo Party Package including:

  • Free La Tortilla Factory tortillas
  • 1 Margaritaville Bahamas™ Frozen-Concoction Maker®
  • I ♥ Beef Gift Basket – including a grill set, aprons, t-shirts and other goodies
  • Colorful party decorations for a “Cinco de Mustache” party including fake mustaches, of course!

To get you in the mood for all this mustachio-ed madness, why not take a bite out of this Cinco de Mayo recipe? Mini Steak Tacos, courtesy of La Tortilla Factory and The Beef Checkoff, are a grande idea, whether you’re celebrating Cinco de Mayo or just enjoying a hearty, healthy meal with your family and friends.

These tiny tacos are made with authentic Hand Made Style Corn Tortillas packed with 14 grams of whole grain, 90 calories per tortilla and no trans fats.

About La Tortilla Factory
Founded in 1977 by Jose and Mary Tamayo, La Tortilla Factory is an innovative family company now under the leadership of the third generation of the Tamayo Family. With great taste as a core value and creativity a guiding inspiration, La Tortilla Factory set in motion a national shift in eating habits early on by creating healthier, better tasting premium products. In 1991 they debuted the first fat free flour tortillas in the world, and, five years later, the first low carb/low fat tortillas. They were the first to bring to market gluten free tortillas, extra virgin olive oil wraps, fiber and flax corn tortillas, and mini wraps.

La Tortilla Factory has transformed the simple tortilla into an icon of good living, and a better-for-you, easier way to eat anything.

La Tortilla Factory partnered with a nationally known digital marketing agency Zenergy Works to design and launch the interactive Facebook promotion.
