TacoTime Authentic Mexican Restaurant Franchise Offers Exceptionally Strong Leadership
TacoTime is backed by global franchising giant Kahala Brands™ and led by a brand president who also is a vested franchisee
TacoTime® Mexican food franchise is poised for growth in 2019, offering several key differentiators that set it apart from the competition — most notably the backing of a global franchising leader, as well as a brand president who also is an experienced franchisee.
Since our first location opened in Oregon more than 50 years ago, TacoTime has grown its lifelong fans with our fresh take on Mexican food. Now we have over 250 locations in the U.S. and Canada, and TacoTime is seeking savvy entrepreneurs to expand our brand’s footprint into new parts of the country.
TacoTime offers investors a unique powerhouse of leadership — parent company Kahala Brands™ is one of the fastest-growing franchise companies in the world. Additionally, TacoTime offers a unique leadership vantage point — a brand president who began working in our stores more than 30 years ago and who is vested in the brand as a franchisee himself. Kevin Gingrich, Brand President, owns multiple TacoTime locations in Utah with his wife, Joy, and is a dedicated fan to our food, eating in his restaurants weekly. “Building the brand and franchisees while owning stores myself is a huge privilege,” Gingrich says.
Here are just a few reasons why investors are taking note of our well-loved brand, named to the Franchise Times 200+ list in 2018.
A business model that works anywhere helps franchisees grow
Under the visionary leadership of Kahala BrandsTM, one of the fastest-growing franchise companies in the world, TacoTime’s family of franchisees benefits from shared teams in purchasing, finance, real estate, business training and IT.
“We have a model that works, and we’re going to take that everywhere,” says Adam Benshoof, Director of Franchise Development. “It all starts with the food quality, and that’s something that potential TacoTime franchise owners really home in on — they are amazed at the quality. And then they learn about all the training and support that they’ll receive by being a part of Kahala Brands™, and that’s a huge thing.”
Low initial investment with potentially high return
Of course, when entrepreneurs begin researching investment options in the restaurant industry, start-up costs are a major factor. For entrepreneurs wanting to open a restaurant specifically in the Mexican QSR space, TacoTime offers an attractive investment opportunity with its lower initial investment requirement and lower buildout costs.
The initial investment estimate for a traditional TacoTime restaurant ranges between $396,150 and $814,050, about half the initial investment for other quick-service Mexican brands. We also offer lower buildout costs than other brands in the Mexican QSR space, which means faster ramp-up time to opening day to allow for a potentially faster return on investment. The franchise fee for your first traditional TacoTime franchise is $30,000, and the franchise fee for multiple units may be discounted if certain conditions are met.
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 has a dedicated brand support team as part of the Kahala Brands™ family.
