Commercial Real Estate Developers Love TacoTime
Steady traffic throughout the day and evening means that TacoTime locations generate their own revenue, but boost other nearby businesses as well
A busy shopping area, bustling with people, is a beautiful sight to the commercial real estate developer behind it. Those individuals want to make sure they have well-run, popular tenants, and that’s why they want a TacoTime™ Mexican food franchise on the property.
“Fast-casual dining is a big part of most major commercial developments, whether it’s an enclosed mall with a large parking area that’s being converted to business use, or an open-air property with shopping, dining and entertainment options mixed in throughout,” says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Franchise Development. “And those developers see the 50-plus year history of growth and customer loyalty that TacoTime offers.”
Steady traffic provides shoppers all day long
That translates into a flow of customers headed into the TacoTime Mexican food franchise all day and evening. That means surrounding businesses, from movie multiplexes to retail stores, derive a benefit as well.
“A commercial development must have customers to survive, obviously,” John says. “They need people who are coming just for one store, and they also really desire the kind of consumer who will spend several hours going from store to store. A popular TacoTime franchise means that many of them will dine on site, and then spend time before and after doing some shopping. That’s how a TacoTime Mexican food franchise supports its neighbors, and why they are valuable assets.”
TacoTime locations support repurposed mall lots
Many large malls, after losing anchor tenants and seeing a business slowdown, are being repurposed as education facilities, small-business hubs and much more. As part of the redevelopment, commercial brokers are looking for high-quality tenants for the parking lots, or outparcel, areas. TacoTime is a natural choice.
“A well-run restaurant that’s popular with consumers and will get people onto the property is a huge goal for developers,” John says. “TacoTime locations are inviting, and people love the food. They are a very good fit for this kind of urban renewal, and it’s exciting to see what the possibilities are going to be as more of these sites are reenergized in their communities.”
TacoTime is ready for the spotlight. With more than 350 locations in the United States and Canada, the successful 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 authentic and affordable Mexican food to their communities. TacoTime is led by a veteran franchise team and dedicated brand support team as part of the Kahala Brands™ family.
