Auntie’s Fry Bread Tacos is a start up Los Angeles restaurant spreading our original family fry bread recipe to Southern California.

Growing up in Montana, fry bread tacos were a comfort food that we all loved (and still do). They are a Native American meal, often found at pow-wows and other festivities. So why is it not found in most major cities? In Los Angeles, we could not locate a single place to purchase a fry bread taco. We decided it was time to take the family recipe and share it with the big city folk. Thus, Auntie’s Fry Bread Tacos was born.

Featuring homemade fry bread (using only 100% mid-oleic plant based oil) we are offering our version of tacos, a hot fresh fry bread topped with homemade chili and all the fixings. Or for those with a sweet tooth, fry bread drizzled in honey, powdered sugar, or cinnamon.

We plan to initially set up in Certified Farmer’s Markets throughout the Los Angeles area and hopefully expand into a mobile operation via catering truck, depending on how much the Kickstarter community is able to help above and beyond our initial goal.

Our project goal would cover everything we need to set up at local farmers markets in the Los Angeles area. Meaning, all of our restaurant supply equipment, including but not limited to, a shallow fryer that will accommodate frybread, a 3 compartment sink for sanitation, a sturdy folding table, a flame retardant tent to set up in, eco friendly utensils, and of course…fresh ingredients! In addition, this money would help us cover limited marketing costs such as banners, business cards, and a website.

We feel strongly about preserving our beautiful planet and will only use 100% eco-friendly utensils.

In addition to sharing this unique culture, we would like to give back to the Native community that created fry bread for us to enjoy.

Because many Native Americans students struggle to further their education, part of Auntie’s Fry Bread Tacos proceeds will go to help fund college scholarships for Native American students throughout North America.

“The state of education in our nation’s K-12 schools for Native students is distressing. Native students perform two to three grade levels below their white peers in reading and mathematics. They are 237 percent more likely to drop out of school and 207 percent more likely to be expelled than white students. For every 100 American Indian/Alaska Native kindergartners, only seven will earn a bachelor's degree, compared to 34 of every 100 white kindergartners. These statistics represent a snapshot of the current problem facing Native students.”
