R Taco, a fast-casual street taco chain backed by Buffalo Wild Wings, announced the execution of a multi-unit development agreement with ThreeWitt Enterprises Inc.
Franchise owner ThreeWitt Enterprises Inc. opened its first R Taco in Dayton, Ohio in March 2017. Driven by their love of the product and positive consumer feedback, the group has plans to open additional locations across Ohio including Columbus and Cincinnati.
“After opening in March, it did not take us long to realize that R Taco was special and that our customers’ love of the concept was undeniable,” says John Slaughenhaupt, principle, ThreeWitt Enterprises Inc. “We feel the R Taco future is extremely bright and our team is excited to be a part of such a young and exciting brand.”
ThreeWitt is operated by three principles Slaughenhaupt, David Fisher and Eric Lundgren. The group previously owned 15 Buffalo Wild Wings franchise locations in Ohio and South Carolina.
“We are thrilled ThreeWitt has decided to expand beyond their location in Dayton to our franchise family as we continue to bring R Taco to additional markets” says Tom Berzinski, vice president, managing director, R Taco. “Like us, they recognize consumers’ love for the unique experience, quality and freshness R Taco offers.”
Launched in Dallas in 2010 as Rusty Taco and named for co-founder Rusty Fenton, the company shortened its name in 2015 to R Taco to provide broader appeal as the concept continues to expand beyond its Dallas roots. Restaurants have a welcoming atmosphere with quirky décor, bold colors, an open ceiling and open kitchen, with natural and industrial lighting. Service is provided for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
