Barry Maring of Northland Restaurant
Group, Inc. is directing his entrepreneurial talent toward developing Taco Del
Mar restaurants.

Taco Del Mar announced
today Maring’s exclusive rights to sell franchises and develop restaurants in
North Dakota, Minnesota, and parts of western Wisconsin.

With plans to open 150 restaurants in the next 10 years across his
territory, Maring is wasting no time signing franchisees and securing premium

The first core areas of development will be Fargo and Minneapolis-St.
Paul. Fargo, Maring’s hometown and a place of his other enterprises, currently
has two letters of intent under review. A Lake City, Minn. franchise has
already been purchased.

Maring is a former Subway developer and franchisee currently involved in
hotel and land development with his father Russell Maring, and in his own
company, Brookstone Development, Inc. of Fargo, N.D.

“Taco Del Mar has a great image and menu that we feel confident our
region is going to readily embrace,” Maring said. “The Mexi-fresh segment is
really growing, and for franchisees, it’s got a relatively low barrier for
entry ($115,000-$240,000), protected territory, and franchises are
technologically streamlined-making them easy to operate.”

Maring plans to have eight Taco Del Mar restaurants open by year’s end.
