Chronic Tacos

Randy Wyner

Randy Wyner is the Founder and Director of Sales at Chronic Tacos, the Southern California chain of fast-casual Mexican food restaurants. As the Director of Sales, Randy develops relationships with all of the franchisees working to continually grow the brand.

Born and raised in Orange County, Randy draws his inspiration from the distinct Californian food culture. Randy grew up on authentic Mexican food and signature SoCal taquerias. It was his belief that the tastiest taquerias tended to be small, family-owned shops that led him to open his first Taco shop using third generation family recipes he acquired from a close family friend. When Randy was struck with the idea of made-to-order Mexican food that was both fast and fresh, Chronic Tacos was born.

Giving back to the community is important to Randy. Together with Chronic Tacos CEO Michael Mohammed and the entire Chronic Tacos team, they support nonprofits such as the Eco-Warrior Foundation where they participate in four beach clean-ups a year and provide free food to the volunteers. Randy is also a resident of Laguna Beach and is currently working on a Chronic Tacos partnership with SchoolPower, a program that works with and benefits Laguna Beach schools.

When Randy’s not at Chronic Tacos, he enjoys exploring new food and taking in the southern California scene whether at the beach, at a live music show or participating in local community events. He also loves attending beach events with his children and grandson.

Originally from Vancouver, Canada, Michael attended Saint Martin’s University in Washington State, where he earned a Bachelors of Business Administration and a Masters of Business Administration.

Michael and his three brothers first became affiliated with Chronic Tacos in 2010 when they helped finance the chain’s expansion into Canada. After seeing the potential that the brand had for growth, they decided to take over the entire franchise in 2012. Michael has been leading Chronic Tacos ever since and has brought a wealth of experience and an entrepreneurial spirit to his position at the company.

Giving back to the community is important to Michael as well as Chronic Tacos’ Founder and Director of Sales, Randy Wyner.

Michael has been an OC resident since his move from Canada to California in 2012. He and his wife, Molly, and their two kids currently reside in Laguna Beach, CA, where their daughter attends Laguna Beach High School and plays on the varsity soccer team. Michael and Randy’s ties to the Laguna Beach community propelled their interest in starting a Chronic Tacos partnership with SchoolPower, a program that works with and benefits Laguna Beach schools.

Michael has grown very fond of southern California over the last six years. He loves Laguna because he enjoys the beach, paddle boarding, wave boarding and bike riding and can take advantage of the outdoors year-round.
