Entrepreneur Recognizes TacoTime on Top Food Franchises List for 2019
Popular business publication includes TacoTime on list of top franchise brand opportunities
Entrepreneur magazine has named TacoTime® a top investment opportunity in the Mexican food space on its newly released ranking of the top food franchise brands for 2019.
“TacoTime has been around for nearly 60 years. You are not going to be around that long unless you are doing something right. Our business model is streamlined,” says Kevin Gingrich, Brand President and a multi-unit owner. “TacoTime is truly a brand with staying power.”
With nearly 300 locations in the United States and Canada, the franchise is ready to expand out of its home territory in the Pacific Northwest where it is a beloved icon in the Mexican food space and take the nation by storm.
TacoTime stands out with high-quality, affordable Mexican food
While other Mexican fast-food franchises are flailing in an attempt to find healthier options, source better-quality meat and create clever ways to ensure customer loyalty, TacoTime has a nearly 60-year track record of serving the freshest, highest-quality Mexican food at a reasonable price point. Mexi-Fries are TacoTime’s wildly popular take on tater tots and can be dunked into one or all of the brand’s proprietary salsas or smothered with melted cheese. TacoTime’s hand-rolled Crisp Burritos come in three varieties and pack a lot of flavor within the crunch of a fried tortilla shell.
“The high quality ingredients that we use make a difference in the end result of the finished product. It may not be the easy way, but it is the right way by going the extra mile — grating our own cheese, soaking beans, cooking our refried beans every morning and hand rolling our burritos. I think a lot of those things that we do behind the scenes customers can taste the difference,” says Trea Latimer-Stillinovich, owner of multiple TacoTime locations in Idaho. “And I think that’s what makes TacoTime great, along with the support that Kahala brings through their marketing department, franchise development and offering opportunities to young franchisees just like me.”
TacoTime is ready for the spotlight. With more than 300 locations in the United States and Canada, the 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 Mexican food to their communities. TacoTime is led by a veteran franchise team and a dedicated brand support team as part of the Kahala Brands™ family.
