Franchise Brands, LLC to Purchase TACO DEL MAR(R)

MILFORD, Conn. // PRNewswire // -- Franchise Brands, LLC, based in Milford, Connecticut, has successfully placed a bid to purchase the rights to TACO DEL MAR®, a quick-service Mexican concept, through a recent bankruptcy auction. A bankruptcy judge has approved the sale of the Seattle-based company.

With more than 200 locations, TACO DEL MAR® will join other concepts in the Franchise Brands portfolio including: PERSONAL TRAINING INSTITUTE®, a one-to-one fitness and nutrition franchise; MAMA DELUCA'S PIZZA NOW!®; and HomeVestors of America, Inc., a real estate concept.

"Franchise Brands is a company with an interest in acquiring businesses to create a diverse portfolio ready for expansion through franchising.

The concept fits our preferred business model with its ease of operation, relatively low investment and presence in a popular foodservice category," said Franchise Brands Managing Director, Lisa M. Oak.
