It’s finally happening: the first LocoL is opening its doors in Watts on January 18th.
Announced in 2014, LocoL is a fast food concept created by Chefs Roy Choi and our very own Daniel Patterson. Unlike those at conventional fast food restaurants, LocoL’s menu items are made with real ingredients and sustainable practices in mind, while still being affordable for anyone at $1 to $6 each. Their goal is to provide an alternative to junk food for communities in food deserts, starting with Watts, San Francisco’s Tenderloin, and Downtown Oakland (coming soon!). The vision: “We fundamentally believe that wholesomeness, deliciousness and affordability don’t have to be mutually exclusive concepts in fast food. We believe that fast food restaurants can truly empower the communities they currently underserve.”
The Cooking Project will be partnering with LocoL to offer cooking classes both on-site and through community outreach programs. This is an exciting time and we can’t wait to see what the future holds for LocoL and The Cooking Project!
If you are in the LA area on or after the 18th, stop by for some GOOD fast food: 1950 E 103rd St. Watts, LA 90002.
