Jason Sussman of Tacofino is an ex treeplanter with a passion for cooking and surfing. He moved to Tofino from Victoria where he worked at Pig BBQ and Cafe Brio. His wife Kaeli Robinsong grew up cooking in the Hollyhock kitchen on Cortes island and has since cooked in tree planting camps and the Vancouver film industy. Tacofino was opened in June 2009; after years of tree planting/camp cooking in the summers and spending winters in Mexico surfing, they wanted to put down some roots somewhere that they could combine their love of cooking, surfing and Mexican food. They bought a film catering truck from Vancouver (rumored to be the very first of its kind to show up in Vancouver in 1978), painted it bright orange and drove it out to Tofino!
