1. Tell me about your store and any particular things you believe make it unique.

At JACO, we offer a unique combination of Mexican-themed Cali breakfast and lunch cuisine with freshly-made juices, smoothies, and acai bowls. We have a signature, oversized take-out window, as well as seating inside and outside.


2. What services or products do you offer?

We offer all-day breakfast bowls, sandwiches, burritos, tacos, quesadillas, rice bowls, and salad. We also have smoothies, fresh juices, acai and pitaya bowls, and immunity shots. You can choose to dine in, sit outside, call ahead, order online, take out, or have your food delivered.


3. How long have you been in business?

We’ve been in business for almost a decade!


4. What do you love most about being located in West Chester?

Our favorite part about the Borough is that it’s a classic small town with an energetic vibe. It combines a diverse array of people, businesses, and interests in a safe, family-oriented, and friendly atmosphere.


5. What can you tell me about the culture or atmosphere of your store?

We believe in making our food quick, fresh, and delicious. We treat our employees and customers like our family, and we always offer service with a smile!


6. Is there anything else you would like to share about your store?

We are grateful to the thousands of loyal customers who supported us through the most difficult of times. We are humbled by the several recognitions we’ve received, including 2021 Philadelphia Mainline Today’s Great Places to Get Tacos in the Philadelphia Suburbs and 2022 One of the 7 Best Smoothie Places in PA.
