Del Taco, one of the nation’s largest Mexican quick-service concepts, announced its most recent Arizona-based restaurant opening with multi-unit operator Chris Beavor.

Located at 5130 West Bell Road. in Glendale, this is Beavor’s 2nd Del Taco restaurant with a third store to open later this year. The Glendale opening is part of his team’s 10-store development deal for the Western Phoenix region, which brings the total number of Del Taco locations in Arizona to 40.

Prior to his journey with Del Taco, Beavor proudly served in the U.S. Air Force, establishing a strong sense of discipline and perseverance.

“In some ways, being a part of such a strong franchise system reminds me of my military service,” said Beavor, who became a franchise partner in 2016. “Both environments provide a sense of unity and help to foster leadership, but you’re also learning to put others first. I’m honored to grow with a brand that promotes impeccable customer service and systemwide success. We’re thrilled to lead the brand’s growth initiatives in Arizona and throughout the West Coast.”
