TacoTime Builds on Solid Reputation to Grow Nationwide
A loyal customer base, high quality products and an aggressive growth strategy are combining to take this regional favorite to the rest of America
For more than 50 years, the Northwest and nearby states have kept the TacoTime® Mexican food franchise all to themselves. Now the rest of the United States is getting in on the action.
“We have an amazing brand, and we’re opening it up to go nationwide,” says Nicole Rayburn, Vice President of Franchise Development. “We’ve been extremely successful in Canada, western Washington and over into Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Montana, and now it’s time to branch out even more. We’re finding enthusiastic partners in a lot of new markets, and so TacoTime is really taking off.”
Quality ingredients build loyal following
TacoTime’s longevity and ability to outshine other Mexican food franchise brands comes down to one thing: the food. Customers aren’t willing to sacrifice quality and taste when they seek out a fast-casual dining experience, and at TacoTime they will never have to do so.
“Everything on the menu is made fresh every day, and when I talk to people who are interested in a TacoTime Mexican food franchise that’s what they hone in on right away,” Nicole says. “Then that’s paired with outstanding customer service and affordable prices. There’s a reason that TacoTime has the following that it does in the areas where we have been for a long time. People have grown up with the brand, and those who have moved away would love to have it nearby again.”
Kahala Brands™ adds many strengths
The expansion will also be greatly aided by the training and support each TacoTime franchise owner will get from corporate parent Kahala Brands. In addition to a dedicated training and marketing team for TacoTime, owners also benefit from strong back-office systems and other support.
“Because Kahala Brands has successfully grown so many other brands across the country, I know they will be able to bring those positive experiences to TacoTime,” Nicole says. “This is just another way that TacoTime can separate itself from other names in the Mexican food franchise space. Potential owners, when they do their research, are very impressed with Kahala’s record — and they should be. It really does add another level of experience and expertise to what we are building with TacoTime nationwide.”
TacoTime is ready for the spotlight. With more than 350 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 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.
