Led by the vision of entrepreneurial industry leaders, franchisor Kahala Brands, TacoTime is one of the fastest-growing franchise companies in the world. While TacoTime is a low-cost investment with high potential returns, our link with Kahala Brands means our new Mexican food franchise owners have access to first-class training and exceptional support, 21st-century marketing strategies and a commitment to providing communities with the freshest Mexican food available for an affordable price. Now, as TacoTime rapidly expands its network of franchise owners, the brand is actively seeking savvy entrepreneurs who are passionate about bringing high-quality, fresh, delicious Mexican food to communities across North America.

“TacoTime is a brand with franchise owners who have been operating great businesses for decades, and we are excited about the opportunities our business model provides for entrepreneurs looking to diversify their business portfolio,” says John Wuycheck, Senior Vice President of Kahala Brands. “We franchise with entrepreneurs who are passionate about serving delicious, high-quality food, as well as developing a rapport with their customers and their staff. TacoTime is an easy-to-run business that requires a good work ethic and the discipline to follow our experienced business model.”

The Rapidly Growing Mexican Food Franchise Offers a Business Model that Has Stood the Test of Time

Since our founding nearly 60 years ago, the demand for Mexican food has risen to nearly $40 billion in annual sales at Mexican restaurants, according to IBISWorld®*. The public has come to expect that their Mexican food be healthier, local and affordable — all while tasting great! These trends, coupled with our experienced business model and low initial investment, make TacoTime a worthy investment opportunity for years to come. Our philosophy is simple: We’ve always believed that fresh, real ingredients make better food.

Of the more the thousands Mexican food restaurants in America, TacoTime is a truly special brand. While other brands are failing 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 price that won’t break our customers’ piggy banks.

“The key difference with TacoTime is our taste profile,” says Kevin Gingrich, Brand President with TacoTime and owner of several TacoTime franchise locations in Utah. “It tastes good because of the seasonings that we have, which are proprietary spice blends created by TacoTime. But our bigger, unique factor is how many items we make in-house. From our hand-rolled Crisp Burritos, to making the taco shells — which most people don’t even know that we do — to the array of other items that are made in-house, from scratch. We make our own salsas and cook our own taco meat every two hours. The norm in the QSR space is where brands bring in products through the back door, maybe reheat it or just pour it out of a bag. We don’t do that. We cook it in-house, and that’s why it tastes better.”
