New Year, Fresh Franchise Opportunities with Del Taco

The new year offers the perfect opportunity to take a step back, reflect on the past year’s successes and look ahead to bigger goals. Del Taco, the nation’s second leading Mexican quick service restaurant*, serves as a strong example of a brand that’s growing with its momentum in the new year and building a thriving brand for franchise partners and customers alike.

Following a refreshing year that introduced the brand’s launch of its elevated combined solutions strategy, promoting its commitment to value, quality and freshness, the brand also experienced big wins with its continued menu innovation. For example, the company announced at the end of 2018 its expansion of its Beyond Tacos test, using Beyond Meat’s 100 percent plant-based protein option in vegetarian and vegan menu offerings. Del Taco the first Mexican fast food chain to offer Beyond Meat’s plant-based protein option.

“We are always looking for new and innovative ways to elevate our menu, and are excited to offer this plant-based alternative to even more of our fans – whether they are vegan, vegetarian or just looking to switch things up – without sacrificing quality and taste,” says John Cappasola, President and Chief Executive Officer of Del Taco.

Del Taco is also riding its 2018 growth into the new year, opening nearly 25 locations last year and aiming to open new locations in California, Washington, Idaho, Florida, Arizona, Michigan, Utah and other territories in 2019.

Del Taco is aggressively expanding across the United States and is seeking passionate multi-unit restaurant operators to join its franchise family. For entrepreneurs who are ready to take 2019 by storm and make a bold business move, Del Taco offers a franchise opportunity that’s constantly innovating to appeal to more and more customers in existing and untapped markets.
