Del Taco Opens Second Seattle-Area Restaurant
Multi-Unit Operator Mark Miller Opens Lacey Location; Plans to Grow Brand’s Regional Presence
May 07, 2019 // Franchising.com // LACEY, Wash. - Del Taco, the value-oriented QSR-plus concept beloved for its fresh ingredients, hand grilled, chopped, sliced and grated in restaurant everyday, announced the opening of its 2nd Seattle-area restaurant with franchisee and multi-unit owner Mark Miller. Located in Lacey at 7742 Martin Way, the newest restaurant is Miller’s 3rd Del Taco in Washington and his 14th Del Taco location overall.
With 580 locations across 14 states, Del Taco offers its guests a unique variety of both Mexican and American favorites, such as tacos, burritos, burgers and fries, prepared fresh daily in the restaurant. Each meal is prepared to order with quality ingredients made in the restaurant like fresh grilled chicken and carne asada steak, hand-sliced avocado, hand-grated cheddar cheese, slow-cooked beans and a fan favorite - creamy Queso Blanco.
“For months, people in Seattle have been anticipating this Del Taco opening,” said Miller, who joined the franchise system in 2009 and recently opened another new location in Rexburg, Idaho. “Since we have existing fans in the region, the Lacey community has made the launch process especially exciting. I’m humbled to reflect on my journey with this great brand, yet eager to continue growing for years to come.”
Prior to Del Taco, Miller developed a diverse ownership background in the grocery, banking, real estate and manufacturing industries. The management and operational skills he gained have contributed to his growth with Del Taco. In total, Miller owns all eight Del Taco locations in Idaho, three in Washington, two in Colorado and one in Oregon. He is expecting to open three additional Del Taco restaurants in the Pacific Northwest before the end of 2019.
Del Taco’s franchising business model, made up of strong operations consulting, management training programs and marketing support is based on mutual partnership and is designed to attract individuals or groups with a strong business acumen, experience in the restaurant industry and an interest in multi-unit franchising. The brand’s unique QSR+ positioning within the rapidly growing Mexican quick-service segment presents great growth potential for experienced multi-unit operators looking to diversify their portfolios with a brand consistently on the forefront of delivering industry leading results.
