Del Taco Restaurants Inc., a leader in the Mexican quick-service category, will open six new restaurants in Florida with the signing of an exclusive development agreement for Brevard County. As part of the brand’s ongoing efforts to expand its footprint in both new and existing markets, Del Taco will operate a total of eight locations in Florida by 2022 including its two existing locations in the Orlando area.

“Del Taco is raising the bar in the industry through its commitment to serving fresh, delicious, and made-to-order food at an unbeatable value. This quick-service-plus experience resonates well with the Florida community, as proven by the brand’s success in Orlando,” says a franchise group spokesperson. “We’re confident that Brevard County will love Del Taco and we look forward to a long and fruitful partnership with this growing brand.”

The new franchise group has agreed to open six freestanding Del Taco restaurants in Brevard County. Bringing more than 16 years of experience operating other retail and foodservice outlets in the area, the new franchise group is excited to bring its diversity of business expertise into the growing Mexican quick-service-plus category.

The category is one of the fastest growing industry segments, and Del Taco attracts a broad customer base across age groups, income levels and demographics. With a menu featuring made-to-order items with fresh ingredients in every restaurant’s working kitchen, Del Taco is focused on product innovation and staying ahead of trends to meet guests’ growing demands for quality food served at a great value. Having recently transitioned into a public company, Del Taco is poised for growth like never before and is actively seeking qualified franchise partners.

“Expanding our presence in Florida is another exciting step in Del Taco’s mission to bring fresh, made-to-order Mexican and American favorites to new guests across the country,” says Laura Tanaka, director of franchise development. “We’re increasing our quick-service-plus capabilities in our working kitchens, strengthening our support systems for our franchise partners, and introducing new menu platforms. All of these additional benefits make it a great time to be a Del Taco franchisee.”

Del Taco is continuing to recruit franchise candidates with foodservice operations and real estate experience in the Southeastern U.S. The company offers extensive training, as well as hands-on operational and marketing support to franchisees.
