TacoTime Franchise Boasts Solid Growth for 2017
Interest continues to grow in new markets, which will allow the brand to expand into new regions of the country and continue raising its profile
With hundreds of locations in the United States and Canada, the TacoTime® Mexican food brand has proven that quality and affordability are a hit with consumers. And with more than 50 years in business, those core values have also allowed the brand to become a durable, well-loved dining destination in the communities it serves.
As the brand continues its plans to reach into new markets across the United States, those hallmarks of excellence will continue to be important, says Kevin Gingrich, who is President and a franchise owner himself.
Longstanding traditions enable expansion
“The fast-casual world is more competitive than ever and there are a lot of brands out there trying to establish themselves,” Kevin says. “TacoTime has done that with more than five decades of steady growth. It began with a simple value proposition: provide great-tasting Mexican food at an affordable price — and it has never deviated from that.”
It’s a simple business model, but it’s one that has allowed TacoTime to develop a solid fan base of customers and will help the Mexican food franchise brand grow into new areas, he adds.
“Once people try TacoTime, they want to come back,” he says. “There’s just no substitute for high-quality, well-prepared food served in a pleasant, relaxed atmosphere. The goal has been to create a very enjoyable experience for guests, and that’s why TacoTime has such a loyal following in the communities it serves.”
Franchise owner involvement a plus
That brand loyalty extends to TacoTime Mexican food franchise owners, as well, who are more than willing to engage in everything from marketing and outreach efforts to seasonal and special menu changes and additions.
“TacoTime takes a lot of pride in the franchise owners’ groups that have been assembled over the decades, because they help drive continued excellence,” Kevin says. “Becoming a TacoTime franchise owner is more than just opening and operating a small business. It’s also becoming part of a large community of entrepreneurs who are determined to help TacoTime grow. That’s a great thing to be part of.”
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.
