The taste of franchisee success

Del Taco is expanding across the country and looking for bold entrepreneurs. Many of our current franchisees decided to invest in Del Taco because they were frustrated with the corporate world and wanted to be in control of their future and build a legacy business for their children. Some of our franchisees wanted to diversify their existing investments such as hotels, c-stores, real estate or other food brands to include the growing, fresh Del Taco brand. Others were discouraged because they could not expand with their current business in the territory they wanted or could not secure an exclusive development territory so they joined Del Taco.
