Your Community – Our Community

At Casa Olé, we're committed to making a difference in the communities where we live, work and do business. This commitment dates from the earliest years of our company and is a vital part both of our heritage and of who we are today.

More than 35 years ago, our founder Larry Forehand opened the very first Casa Olé restaurant in Pasadena, Texas. Not only did he transform the business of making great Tex Mex food fresh on site at each restaurant, but he established an enduring model of responsible community stewardship.

We're proud of our legacy and our heritage of giving back to the community. We volunteer actively, give generously and work to make a difference where it's most needed. Casa Olé over the past four years has raised over $100,000 for The Rose, a non-profit breast cancer organization, as well as being an active supporter of Muscular Dystrophy research. Casa Olé also encourages children's literacy and teamwork by donating food and financial resources to various educational, athletic and fine arts organizations within the local communities where our restaurants are located. We also participate with a toy drive each Holiday season by collecting thousands of toys for less fortunate children.

There's much more we'd like to share regarding our commitment to making a difference. Please come and visit any of our Casa Olé locations and see what we can do in your community!  We have several fundraising opportunities available. Please contact the local store manager or email us at Please see our Donation page for more information.
