About Mario Maji Melendez

Rasta Taco's founder Mario "Maji" Melendez is an Orange County native who has traveled and lived around the world, and even received his MBA in Alicante, Spain. A born entrepreneur, his first business took off in high school. He designed and sold t-shirts that led to his popular MAJI apparel line. For the past five years, his focus is Rasta Taco, a gourmet taco cart catering business that serves incredible fresh tacos, and more, at parties, events and weddings throughout SoCal. (It's a fave catering company of the surf, snow, and skate industries.) Rasta Taco is the perfect blend of Melendez's love of the Jamaican laid-back lifestyle, delicious fresh flavors (try his fave carne asada with jalapeno salsa) and dedication to community and customer service. Melendez cares about local non-profits by catering events including Surfrider, John Wayne Cancer Foundation and the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation.
