TacoTime Franchisees Get Support of Kahala Brands’ Franchising Expertise
Seasoned team helps new owners at launch, then lends support every step of the way
While many entrepreneurs launch a business because they are eager to venture out on their own, those who choose franchising often do so because know they can rely on the franchisor’s structured and proven operational procedures. At TacoTime® Mexican food franchise, we take that a step further — offering access to world-class leaders in franchising as a member of the Kahala Brands™ family.
TacoTime franchise owners have a wealth of expertise at their fingertips to help guide them as they launch and run their restaurants. Every step of the ownership process is backed by a team of franchising experts.
Franchisees are partners with the corporate team
“People don’t realize just how much expertise Kahala Brands has in building and operating very well-known brands,” says Kevin Gingrich, TacoTime’s Brand President. “While they have a lot of brands, they also have been very smart in making sure that each brand receives all the time and attention it needs to grow and thrive.”
For example, training and support are customized for what a TacoTime Mexican food franchise owner needs. At the same time, the training and support team provides them with business fundamentals, so that even someone who’s brand new to business ownership is well-prepared to launch their new TacoTime location.
“And then once they’re open, they’re going to take advantage of the advertising and marketing plans that our brand’s corporate team creates,” Gingrich says. “The good news there is that TacoTime Mexican food franchise owners get the opportunity to chime in on those efforts, as well as R&D and every other aspect of the development side. It’s an amazing partnership that most small businesses don’t have access to.”
Operational support helps owners focus on running their business
Ongoing franchisee support continues long after grand opening day to include the essentials for running a TacoTime, such as back-office systems for payroll and inventory. That means a new TacoTime Mexican food franchise owner has a system in place from day one that’s integrated into a larger network of support.
“People don’t open a business to sit in the back doing paperwork,” Gingrich says. “I certainly didn’t when I opened my first TacoTime Mexican food franchise. Kahala Brands has built a world-class support system that includes everything from employee training to the computerized systems that help the business run smoothly. And because they are always working to improve these systems, franchise owners benefit from enhancements and upgrades without having to do all the work themselves — they can focus on running their business.”
TacoTime is ready for the spotlight. With more than 250 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.
