Award-Winning Sports Bar Chain Garners Recognition for Employee Satisfaction

Buffalo wing lovers and sports fans have enjoyed Atlanta-based institution Taco Mac since 1979, and with its latest accolade, it is clear that its employees agree. The regional restaurant chain has recently been named to Newsweek’s list of America’s Greatest Workplaces 2023, earning four stars out of a possible five-star ranking.


“Employee satisfaction is essential to maintaining the fun and vibrant atmosphere and producing the high-quality food that our guests have come to expect from all of our Taco Mac locations,” says Taco Mac CEO Harold Martin, Jr. “We are pleased that so many of our team members are excited to come to work each day to share their enthusiasm with our customers.”


In an industry known for frequent turnover, Taco Mac has created a work environment that attracts and retains talent by providing opportunities for professional development and advancement within the company. Beer aficionados thrive at Taco Mac with opportunities to tour local breweries and to complete the Cicerone Certification Program, an industry standard of beer knowledge. The company also invests in developing leaders internally through management training and provides continuous food and service training to maintain the best guest experience.


Taco Mac also participates in the Hospitality Sector Registered Apprentice program through the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation, providing paid on-the-job training for staff who want to advance beyond entry-level.


The America’s Greatest Workplaces recognition was determined using data from a survey given to more than 61,000 respondents from companies with more than 1,000 employees. Each company was evaluated in eight categories: company image, corporate culture, working environment, work-life balance, training and career progression, compensation and benefits, sustainability awareness and proactive management of the diverse workforce.
