Torti Taco In Battle Creek Expanding: Adding Bar & Grill
Fans of Torti Taco are excited about the recent announcement on their social media page that they plan to expand their business by opening up a Bar & Grill in downtown Battle Creek. I reached out to management and they confirmed that this was an expansion, and NOT a move. They plan on having two locations, and as they prepare to open their new bar & grill, they're encouraging people to visit them at their current location at 5275 Beckley Rd, in Battle Creek.
