TacoTime Franchise Appeals to Consumers for High-Quality, Budget Friendly Menu
Consumers are spending more money on dining out in 2019 and Mexican food is a popular choice
TacoTime®, the iconic Mexican QSR franchise, is poised for expansion beyond our Pacific Northwest roots as more Americans are eating out and craving a fresh take on Mexican food.
Not only are consumers eating out more (the National Restaurant Association projects that consumer spending on dining will be up nearly 4 percent this year for 2018), but they are craving Mexican food. Entrepreneur magazine recently named TacoTime franchise as a wise investment opportunity in the Mexican food space on its list of franchise categories they predict will boom in 2019.
“We’re known for fresh products, and how we make everything fresh every day and throughout the day, including our chips and shells,” says Denise Staley, a multi-unit owner. “We’re known for that versus for being quick. We’re still doing things, like crisp burritos, that we did in the 1970s. You can’t go wrong with tacos, burritos and salads.”
TacoTime’s culture of support starts on day one
You don’t build a food brand for nearly 60 years without getting a few things right. At TacoTime, we stand out in the competitive Mexican restaurant space because of our commitment to fresh ingredients, high-quality food and stellar customer service.
“We’ve been in business now for nearly 60 years, and our franchise owners are successful, profitable and beloved members of their communities,” says Kevin Gingrich, Brand President and multi-unit owner of TacoTime restaurants in Utah with his wife, Joy. “We’ve seen our competitors come and go, while our franchise owners have been successful for 20, 30 and even 40 years! The TacoTime difference, that real ingredients make better food, was proven with the baby boomers when our franchise system got going. It’s continuing now with millennials, who are really concerned with the quality of their food. TacoTime is truly a brand with staying power.”
TacoTime’s commitment to the freshest ingredients has not only set them apart from other Mexican QSR concepts, but also has built a loyal, multigenerational customer base. Although the majority of that customer base is in the Northwest United States, TacoTime has ample expansion opportunities beyond that regional stronghold, as American consumers — particularly millennials — seek out fresh food made with authenticity.
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 has a dedicated brand support team as part of the Kahala Brands family.
