Del Taco Expands National Footprint with Multi-Unit Franchise Partners

As the nation’s second-leading Mexican quick-service restaurant*, Del Taco shows no signs of slowing down the expansion of its national footprint.

The QSR-plus powerhouse is seeing a number of recent openings across the country, with seasoned multi-unit franchise partners continuing the company’s strategic growth in areas including Rexburg, Idaho, Castle Rock, Colorado, Gilbert, Arizona and Southgate, Michigan. Other locations to join the ranks include Vista, California, Gainesville and Calhoun, Georgia, and Silver City, New Mexico – the 10th Del Taco restaurant with QK Holdings.

Growing the brand’s regional presence in Idaho, longtime franchise partner Mark Miller recently opened his 13th Del Taco location in Rexburg – owning all eight locations across the state. Brent Veach added two more locations under his belt, his Castle Rock and Gilbert restaurants bringing his grand total up to 49 overall Del Taco locations.

Del Taco is also continuing its strategic expansion in the Detroit area, announcing the December 3 opening of its newest Michigan location. Mark Schostak, Del Taco franchise partner and executive chairman of Team Schostak Family Restaurants, is thrilled to be serving the Southgate community. Team Schostak currently owns and operates five other Del Taco restaurants across the greater Detroit area.

“Whether guests are craving The Del Taco made with seasoned beef and hand-grated cheddar cheese, or one of our Epic Burritos made with fresh grilled chicken and hand-sliced avocados, we look forward to delivering an elevated dining experience that we know local residents will love,” says Schostak.

In addition to these new restaurants, the brand has also recently opened corporate locations in Las Vegas, Nevada, Douglasville, Roswell and Hiram, Georgia and Moore and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma.

With more than 560 locations across 14 states, the beloved Mexican chain dedicated to serving fresh food at an unbeatable value is making waves across the country with its aggressive expansion by seasoned franchise partners. The brand’s unique QSR+ positioning within the rapidly growing Mexican quick-service segment offers great growth potential for experienced multi-unit operators looking to diversify their portfolios with a brand consistently on the forefront of delivering industry-leading results.
