Taco John's International Inc. (Taco John's), a leading quick-service Mexican franchise, is fueled by more than five decades of steady growth, a significant footprint of nearly 400 units open today and new branding. The iconic quick-service brand is seeking to grow through franchising with qualified franchisees across the country and is one of the only legacy brands with significant green space available.
The brand boasts strong unit economics with $1.49M AUVs (top 25% of restaurants per Item 19 in the FDD) and a new restaurant prototype. The brand is rolling out a systemwide remodel program this year.
Taco John's is initially focused on markets where it already has a presence, like Colorado, Wyoming, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Missouri, Illinois, Kentucky, Tennessee, Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin. As Taco John's ramps up franchising this year, it is targeting well-capitalized franchisees with experience in restaurants or as executives leading high-performing teams. The brand plans to ink agreements representing 50 units this year alone.
2019 was an exciting year for the brand. Taco John's unveiled an updated brand and restaurant design. This year, the brand is introducing several menu items that aim to further position the Taco John's as consumers' first choice among Mexican quick-service brands. In addition, Taco John's is rolling out a systemwide remodel program to match its updated branding, driving its popularity among young consumers. In early 2020, the brand added three restaurant veterans to its Board of Directors. Its new board members bring brand experience from industry juggernauts like McDonald's, Wendy's and Darden Restaurants.
Taco John's is consistently ranked as one of the top franchise opportunities in the country. In 2020, it was listed in the top 25% of Entrepreneur's prestigious Franchise 500, which is considered the world's first, best and most comprehensive franchise ranking. This marks the 26th year the brand has been listed.
The Taco John's franchise opportunity separates itself as a thriving legacy brand with strong unit-level economics, prime markets available for multi-unit development and unique menu. The brand has recently launched several new and innovative menu items, a new refreshed brand look and feel, and is rolling out a systemwide remodel program, all serving to attract new consumers and retain longtime fans. As Taco John's expands, it is seeking qualified, experienced and passionate franchisees and franchise groups to develop the concept in key markets.
