Amit Raizada’s Spectrum Business Ventures-backed Tocaya Organica gets shout out from John Legend and Postmates

The Grammy Award-winning artist said he loves Tocaya’s modern Mexican cuisine as part of the Postmates #OrderLocal campaign

Last month, Grammy Award-winning artist and activist John Legend shared that Spectrum Business Ventures-backed Tocaya Organica is one of his favorite restaurants to order takeout from in Southern California. Legend shared his love for Tocaya as part of the Postmates #OrderLocal campaign, an effort by the food delivery app to encourage people in lockdown to order takeout from local restaurants.

“In this time of social distancing,” John Legend said in a video shared on YouTube, “we love to support our favorite restaurants and order in…Tocaya Organica!”

Legend appeared alongside other stars like Snoop Dogg, Katy Perry, Meghan Rapinoe, and more, as he praised Tocaya’s fast-casual Mexican dining.

In support of the video, Legend also tweeted, “To no one's surprise, we love ordering food from Postmates. And while we're all staying home it's important our local favorites are still getting some love so they can stay in business. We've been eating Tocaya Organica – where do you #OrderLocal?”

“Tocaya is doing something different with cuisine,” SBV CEO Amit Raizada said, “so it doesn’t surprise me that John loves the food! Tocaya embodies everything I admire about the future of restaurants: service is quick, the food is healthy, the atmosphere is well-lit and casual, and, most importantly, Tocaya provides high-quality food at a reasonable price.”

Legend’s shout out comes just as Tocaya announced a new burrito delivery business in Downtown Los Angeles, Burritos Locos.

“As we navigate the future of restaurants and retail,” Raizada added, “I have no doubt that Tocaya and other SBV-backed ventures will continue to innovate and reach new heights.
