Del Taco Ends 2019 with a Bang, Continues Stellar Growth with New and Existing Franchisees

Del Taco’s growth is heating up the new year!

The franchise recently announced a 10-unit development deal with multi-unit franchisee Mark Miller, coupled with his acquisition of the Reno market. His team’s commitment includes an agreement to develop six stores in the Yakima and Spokane, WA markets and four across his current geographic operating area.

Since joining Del Taco in 2009, Miller has pursued ambitious growth with the brand, developing four new stores in 2019 alone. His location count now includes 10 Del Taco restaurants in Idaho, eight in Nevada, four in Washington, two in Colorado and one in Oregon – “taco” ‘bout being proud as Del!

“From multiple openings and new development deals, the past few months have been a whirlwind of excitement,” says Miller. “Being involved with a forward-thinking company, and having a determined team to drive our momentum…our growth capabilities are stronger than ever. We’re amidst a booming industry, and the opportunities will continue to come in the year ahead.”

And, that’s not all – Del Taco continues to grow its footprint in the unique QSR+ space with existing and new franchisees. Strengthening its presence in San Diego, the brand has partnered with SoCal Food Group, an Irvine-based operating team led by Amer Boukai, to develop a whopping 21 California sites over the next seven years – 16 of which will be in San Diego County. In addition, the team has been awarded ownership of the 10 current company-operating restaurants in San Diego.

The brand’s stellar growth shows that new and existing franchisees alike recognize the incredible opportunity in franchising with Del Taco, from its proven performance and competitive position in the fast-growing Mexican QSR category to its broad customer base appeal, the support of an experienced leadership team, and so much more.

It’s clear that the franchise is strongly resonating across the country. Experienced multi-unit investors are encouraged to discover how big they can grow with a powerhouse like Del Taco.
