  • Del Taco Offers Unbeatable Combination of Value, Freshness, and Operational Excellence: Thriving concept seeks multi-unit expansion partners.

    Del Taco has become the second leading brand in the fast-growing Mexican quick-service restaurant category thanks to its unmatched offering of freshly prepared, high-quality food, streamlined operations, and a seasoned leadership team. However, with consumers craving both fresh food and looking at their quick-service visits with an even stronger eye toward value, Del Taco is strategically positioned to capitalize on consumer demands with its legacy of great tasting food served at an unbeatable value. 

    “We have consistently outperformed the quick-service industry, and our barbell menu strategy is just one reason for those results,” says Laura Tanaka, director of franchise development for Del Taco. “Our robust menu which appeals to all dayparts, including breakfast and late night, ensures that no matter what time guests have a craving, we’re able to deliver freshly-prepared food for that occasion, and back it up with the operational excellence which provides our franchise partners a platform for success.” 

    With a relentless focus on system-wide profitability, Del Taco has over 300 corporate-owned locations, truly having ‘skin in the game’ when compared to so many other heavily-franchised brands. This trusted partner relationship is validated by the frequent meetings with the company’s Franchisee Marketing Advisory Team and Operations Advisory Council, to ensure franchisees have a seat at the table when it comes to decisions that affect the brand.

    Another competitive advantage is the tremendous new market buzz Del Taco generates, tapping into a brand enthusiasm that is unmatched, thanks to the company’s ability to delivery on craveable Mexican-inspired favorites and American classics, including Crinkle Cut Fries, that are served hot, fresh, and at a tremendous value. While Del Taco has roots in Southern California, the brand’s legacy items, including its Grilled Chicken Taco and ½ lb. Bean and Cheese Burritos, are known from coast to coast, with guests asking on social media when Del Taco is going to open in their towns on a daily basis. 

    Del Taco is seeking passionate, qualified franchisees with multi-unit operating experience interested in developing multiple restaurants in a specific territory. They must be well capitalized with access to at least $500,000 in liquid capital and have a combined minimum net worth of over $1 million.
