Del Taco announced the opening of its 37th Arizona restaurant with longtime franchisee and multi-unit owner Brent Veach. Located in Gilbert at 5156 East Baseline Rd., the newest restaurant marks Veach’s 28th store in Arizona and his organization’s 49th overall Del Taco location.
With more than 560 locations across 14 states, Del Taco offers its guests a unique variety of both Mexican and American favorites, such as tacos, burritos, burgers and fries, prepared fresh daily in the restaurant. Each meal is prepared to order with quality ingredients made in the restaurant like fresh grilled chicken and carne asada steak, hand-sliced avocado, hand-grated cheddar cheese, slow-cooked beans and a fan favorite—creamy Queso Blanco.
“The anticipation and excitement for a Del Taco in Gilbert has been building for quite some time,” says Veach, who joined the franchise system in 1999 and recently also opened a new location in Castle Rock, Colorado. “When it comes to rapid growth, our leadership team is on fire. I’m always proud to be a part of that momentum and to introduce our unbeatable concept to new communities.”
Prior to Del Taco, Veach earned an expertise in accounting as a CPA at various high profile companies. Now, along with having nearly 50 Del Taco restaurants across Arizona and Colorado, Veach also serves as president of Del Taco's Franchise Marketing Advisory Team, which works with brand leadership to achieve transparent franchisee and franchisor relations.
Del Taco’s franchising business model, made up of strong operations consulting, management training programs and marketing support is based on mutual partnership and is designed to attract individuals or groups with a strong business acumen, experience in the restaurant industry and an interest in multi-unit franchising. The brand’s unique quick-service-plus positioning within the rapidly growing Mexican quick-service segment presents great growth potential for experienced multi-unit operators looking to diversify their portfolios with a brand consistently on the forefront of delivering industry leading results.
