TacoTime Ramps Up To Break New-Franchise Records In 2018
Recognized and respected brand continues to draw interest from entrepreneurs in markets throughout the United States
It’s not hard to find a TacoTime™ Mexican food franchise in many cities across the United States. That’s hardly surprising — after more than 50 years, the iconic brand has hundreds of locations. Now, thanks to a strong economy and solid interest from potential franchise owners, TacoTime is going to become even more widespread.
“We have begun an aggressive effort to expand the number of TacoTime locations, and that’s in markets where we’re already a known name as well as in new territories,” says Kevin Gingrich, president. “TacoTime has a remarkable story to tell, and we’re finding that a lot of people are very eager to hear it.”
Long history of operational excellence
Indeed, there are many positives to the TacoTime Mexican food franchise concept. For starters, the brand dates back to the early 1960s, making it a legacy name in the ever-changing fast/casual dining sector. That kind of longevity can only come from high-quality food, outstanding operational processes and customer loyalty.
“Our focus has always been simple,” Kevin says. “First and foremost, offer great food. Then provide business systems that run efficiently, so that franchise owners can realize a profit. And lastly, provide best-in-class customer service so that people want to come back again and again. We do all those things, and that’s why TacoTime continues to grow.”
New markets offer expansion opportunities
Entrepreneurs interested in a TacoTime Mexican food franchise should consider one important point: the novelty of a new name in local dining. While TacoTime is a recognized and loved brand in the Pacific Northwest and Western states, it’s not as well known in the South and Northeast, for example. That means opportunity.”
“Introducing a new concept to the community can be risky, but when it’s one as solid and tested as TacoTime,” that risk can pay off,” Kevin says, “The franchise owner will get credit for opening up a favorite dining spot for residents, and can quickly build up a loyal following of frequent visitors.”
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.
