Multi-Unit Operating Group Opens Third Del Taco Restaurant in 3 Years

Meet Tom Getz, a multi-unit franchise partner with Del Taco. Tom operates under Jetz Foods LLC with partners Billy Jensen and James Shepard. Just three years into franchising with Del Taco, the group has opened its third restaurant in Dalton, GA. Read on to learn from Tom about why Jetz Foods loves franchising with Del Taco.

Q: Why did you want to become a Del Taco franchise partner?

A: “Del Taco first piqued our interest because of the fresh, quality products and tremendous value it provides. When Del Taco began expanding into new territories, we jumped at the opportunity to lead growth in the Southeast. Now, we’re continuously impressed by the executive team’s ability to stay ahead of the curve with innovative menu items, promotions and efficient business operations. With this level of corporate commitment and support, I know we have a bright future ahead.”

Q: What role does your background play in your Del Taco business?

A: “We understand the importance of positive relationships with employees and the customer, and how vital those relationships are to the success of your business. We are also very familiar with the Chattanooga and the north Georgia area and have built many relationships over the years.”

Q: What is the greatest satisfaction you get from owning and running your Del Taco business?

A: “The ability to develop a team, see it grow and become successful leaders, but ultimately, seeing the customers happy by exceeding their expectations.”

The Dalton opening is part of the team’s expansion plans to aggressively develop Del Taco restaurants throughout North Georgia and Southeast Tennessee. Two additional units are on track to open later this year.

Del Taco continues to expand with esteemed multi-unit groups that are hungry for growth. The franchise’s business model, made up of strong operations consulting, management training programs and marketing support, enable Del Taco to match the aggressive growth plans of its strong franchise network. And, its unique QSR+ positioning within the rapidly growing Mexican quick-service segment presents great growth potential for experienced operators and private equity firms looking to diversify their portfolios.
