Del Taco Restaurants, Inc. closed out 2015 with a series of new restaurant openings. A leader in the Mexican Quick Service Restaurant category, Del Taco opened a total of nine stores in six states during Q4, further proving the brand’s commitment to strategic domestic expansion. The new stores opened in the following locations:
- Medford, Oregon
- Taylorsville, Utah
- South Jordan, Utah
- Boise, Idaho
- Farmington, New Mexico
- Las Vegas, Nevada (2)
- Porterville, California
- Rancho Santa Margarita, California
“Del Taco’s consistent positive sales are a testament to the strength of our business model and our ability to launch the brand while maintaining solid momentum in both new and existing markets,” said Paul Murphy, CEO and president of Del Taco. “These nine openings are just the tip of the iceberg for Del Taco in terms of growth. We’re poised for significant expansion and have a talented franchise development team in place to provide a hands-on level of support to our growing franchise partners.”
This substantial growth follows Del Taco’s June 2015 transition to a public company. As the newly public brand expands, Del Taco continues to focus on menu innovation and staying ahead of trends to meet guests’ evolving tastes and demands for quality food served at unbeatable price and convenience. With a menu that offers premium menu items as well as options that start as low as 59-cents, Del Taco appeals to a broad demographic.
“Del Taco is raising the bar for the entire Quick Service category with its unmatched commitment to quality and freshness which is not typically found in the QSR segment,” said restaurateur Larry Levy, chairman of the Del Taco board. “The brand is carving out its own space in the industry, and Del Taco’s unique offering of fresh, high quality food paired with convenience and value, is strongly resonating with franchisees and consumers alike.”
To accommodate the brand’s growing national popularity, the company is focused on recruiting new and experienced franchise candidates to join the Del Taco team.
“With proven results in new markets and outstanding opportunities for growth, there has never been a better time to expand your portfolio with Del Taco,” said Director of Franchise Development, Laura Tanaka. “Our solid company financials combined with our experienced leadership team and a wealth of resources, positions Del Taco franchisees for success with an exciting brand on the move.”
