A Fresh Franchise Opportunity!
Del Taco first opened its doors in 1964, when Ed Hackbarth's taco stand and hamburger stand combined to serve guests quality and fresh Mexican and American favorites. Today, Del Taco is the second largest quick-service restaurant concept in the Mexican category with over 550 restaurants in 16 states. In June of 2015, Del Taco was acquired by Levy Acquisition Corp. and began being traded on the NASDAQ with the ticker symbol of TACO. This transition into a public company poises Del Taco Restaurants Inc. for tremendous growth as well as a strong national competitor and a continued leader in the QSR+ space.
The MQSR category is one of the fastest growing industry segments, and Del Taco attracts a broad customer base across age groups, income levels and demographics, by providing popular Mexican menu items such as tacos, burritos and quesadillas with American favorites like hamburgers, crinkle cut fries and shakes.
What sets Del Taco apart from the competition is that the brand delivers fresh, quality food on par with the Fast Casual segment but served at the speed and price of a Quick Service Restaurant. Consumers gravitate to "better" quick-service restaurants, which has transformed the industry and has created a subset of "QSR-Plus."
By offering a Buck and Under Menu with an unmatched variety of items that start as low as 59 cents, Del Taco was named "Best Value for Your Money" by the nation's leading consumer review publication. Del Taco has also seen sales growth through the introduction of more premium menu options and healthier items, such as the addition of fresh sliced avocado and handcrafted Ensaladas.
With a menu featuring made-to-order items made with fresh ingredients, an unbeatable Buck and Under value menu and a focus on product innovation, Del Taco successfully meets guests' evolving tastes and demands for quality food served at a great value.
As one of the nation's leading QSR brands within the Mexican segment, Del Taco's potential for growth is tremendous. Our average unit volumes rank among the highest within the Mexican food segment of the quick serve industry. When Del Taco expands into new markets, it is remarkable how many consumers are familiar with the brand, know the menu and remember the last time they ate at Del Taco. It's no surprise Del Taco outperforms competitors. As you contemplate your potential business venture, take advantage of this opportunity to leverage the Del Taco Brand, smart systems and history of success.
