El Mariachi Loco is a family-owned and operated authentic Mexican restaurant that opened for year-round business on Hyannis Main Street in 2014. When they first opened, they had 6 dine-in seats with counter service, but the pandemic forced them to do take-out only. They now only have counter service with limited outdoor seating, and get a lot of online orders year round on their Square site. They are interested in exploring food delivery options, but the corporate third-party apps are too expensive for them. Their social media presence is good but could use more consistency and variety. They also have a food truck that they would love to get running but have trouble staffing it.
They have plans to open another restaurant in the condo complex at the end of 2022, providing a unique opportunity to activate the space. They plan to take over the courtyard at 569 Main Street to add more tables, lighting, plants, awnings, and umbrellas for the public to enjoy eating outdoors, as well as to transform the typically disused area and to draw more attention to it.
