5 Reasons Why You Should Invest in a Taco Franchise
Open territory, world-class support and high profit potential create the perfect recipe for first-time entrepreneurs looking to own a Mexican food franchise
Entrepreneurs pondering their next investment opportunity should consider owning a taco franchise. And while you’re at it, consider franchising with a leader in the Mexican QSR industry – TacoTime™ Mexican food franchise.
TacoTime is a quick-service restaurant chain offering a tasty variety of freshly-prepared, homestyle Mexican fare. With more than 300 locations in the United States and Canada, our Mexican food franchise is ready to break out of its home turf in the Pacific Northwest and hit the national stage. TacoTime is looking for entrepreneurs who are passionate about bringing affordable, high-quality Mexican food to their communities.
At TacoTime, we have always believed that fresh, real ingredients make better food. We take the time to do it right — and that’s why you can taste the deliciously fresh difference in every item we make. We take pride in the quality of our food and our passion is to ensure every customer enjoys our one-of-a-kind flavors that have been a favorite for more than 60 years.
Here are five reasons why you should invest in a Taco Time franchise:
- Mexican QSR is booming
The demand for fast-casual Mexican food continues to rise in the U.S. According to IBISWorld, the Mexican restaurant industry earned $60 billion in 2019. Since our founding, we have been incredibly inventive with our menu, incorporating a playful sensibility into traditional Mexican fare. This is why TacoTime offers an assortment of customizable tacos, burritos, salads, quesadillas and nachos.
“The key difference with TacoTime is our taste profile,” says Kevin Gingrich, Brand President of TacoTime and owner of several TacoTime franchises in Utah. “It tastes good because of the seasonings that we have, which are proprietary spice blends created for us. However, our biggest unique factor is how many items we make in-house. The norm in the QSR space is brands bringing products in through the back door, and maybe reheating it or just pouring it out of the bag. TacoTime doesn’t do that. We cook it in-house, and that’s why it tastes better.”
- Join a brand with world-class support
Looking for a business that’s easy to manage? You’ve come to the right place. TacoTime is led by our parent company, Kahala Brands™ — one of the fastest-growing franchising companies in the world. Additionally, with a brand president at the heart of TacoTime, new franchise owners who sign up are equipped with a team of sales, marketing and operations talent that support TacoTime and our franchisees.
- Low investment with high potential returns
TacoTime is a low-cost investment opportunity, especially when compared to other Mexican food franchise opportunities. Our initial investment for a traditional TacoTime ranges between $371,150 and $605,300*. Not only are our buildout costs substantially lower than other brands in the Mexican QSR industry, but we’ve streamlined our buildout process for a potentially faster return on investment.
- We have plenty of prime locations available
For years, TacoTime was known only to our devoted customers in the Pacific Northwest — now TacoTime is ready for the spotlight. With the support of franchising giant Kahala Brands behind us, TacoTime is ready to capture the hearts of Americans everywhere. This is why we are seeking out savvy entrepreneurs who are passionate about bringing high-quality, great-tasting Mexican food to their communities.
- TacoTime’s food is fresh and tasty
Since our founding in 1960, TacoTime has not broken our promise to use fresh, real ingredients to make the best food. With our concept, our customers can not only see, but taste the difference. We’ve kept this belief at the heart of our core values, which is why we prepare our food in-house by hand and from scratch in many cases.
