Del Taco Now Operating in 15 States, Brings Fresh Flavor to Alabama With New Store Opening

2019 has been a year of milestones for Del Taco. Not only did the franchise become the first national Mexican fast food chain to add a 100% plant-based protein option to its menu, but it’s also nearing 600 open locations across the country!

Now, Del Taco is proud as Del to be operating in 15 states – the franchise celebrated its strategic expansion in Alabama with a new store opening on November 6 in Phenix City with franchise partner Clay Gullatt. This opening marks the second Del Taco location for Gullatt, who also owns a location in Columbus, GA.

“We’ve seen firsthand how Del Taco’s winning combination of freshly-prepared food served at a tremendous value creates fans and drives traffic,” says Gullatt. “Whether guests are craving The Del Taco made with seasoned beef and hand-grated cheddar cheese, or one of our new Beyond Tacos, made with 100% plant-based protein, we look forward to offering the Phenix City, AL and greater Columbus, GA community an assortment of items sure to satisfy every craving.”

The new Phenix City location is just one strong example of Del Taco’s continued growth as it takes the country by storm with its fresh food served fast – all at an unbeatable value. The franchise is aggressively expanding and seeking passionate multi-unit restaurant operators who are ready to join in on the momentum and grow with a leader.
