Strategic Hospitality Partners With Award-Winning Chef Claudette Zepeda, Bringing Taqueria Zepeda to Nashville SC’s GEODIS Park.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (February 21, 2024) – Strategic Hospitality is excited to announce its partnership with award-winning Chef Claudette Zepeda, bringing Taqueria Zepeda to Nashville SC’s GEODIS Park, the largest soccer-specific stadium in the United States. After the two-year partnership with Chef Edgar Victoria of Tacos By Alebrije concluded in 2023, Chef Claudette Zepeda steps in to bring her bold approach to regional Mexican cuisine to Nashville SC fans.

“We are immensely grateful for Edgar and our successful two years with Tacos By Alebrije,” shares Max Goldberg of Strategic Hospitality. “I was fortunate enough to meet Claudette as a Henry Crown Fellow after being a fan of her wins on Iron Chef: Quest For An Iron Legend and Iron Chef: México. Ever since, I’ve wanted to find a way to bring her talents to Nashville. Claudette is just one of those special people who create a wake of goodness wherever she goes. Hopefully this is the first of many projects we can accomplish together.”

Chef Zepeda, a celebrated figure in the culinary world, brings a dynamic approach to Mexican cuisine, enriched by over two decades of experience and her role as the founder and creative director of Chispa Hospitality. Her acclaimed work, including the renowned El Jardín, has earned her national recognition, including accolades from The New York Times, Esquire, Michelin, and nominations from The James Beard Foundation. Zepeda's expertise and innovative vision translate to Taqueria Zepeda, with its authentic and diverse Mexican flavors, offering fans a unique concessions experience.

Taqueria Zepeda will feature three different types of Tacos “Con Todo” enveloped in corn tortillas – Pulled Pork Adobada, served with charred pineapple, creamy avocado salsa, and cilantro; Steak served with avocado mash and salsa de molcajete; and Chicken Salsa Verde, served with creamy avocado salsa and spicy pickle. Fans can also enjoy a variety of botanas, or snacks, including Cheese Quesadilla, Queso with Rajas, and Cinnamon Sugar Crisps.

“Cooking is a dialogue of stories, and I’m excited to share mine with the Nashville community,” shares Chef Claudette Zepeda. “I have been looking for a home to bring Taqueria Zepeda from Sydney, Australia, and Nashville has felt like home since my first visit here in 2021. I’m thrilled to welcome all of the Nashville SC fans with some border kid hospitality.”

Fans can find Taqueria Zepeda at two locations within GEODIS Park: the South Stand, near Gate F, and the North Stand, near Gate A. Taqueria Zepeda will be available on Nashville SC match days and during all events held at the stadium.
