5 Best Burrito Franchises for Convenience Stores

Are you searching for a list of the best burrito franchises for convenience stores or travel plazas?

At Del Taco, we understand it can be hard to pick just one because there are so many different options to choose from.

In this article, we will take a look at five of the best burrito franchises for convenience stores & travel plazas in no particular order.

Del Taco

We simply had to put ourselves on this list because of our freshly prepared menu, streamlined restaurant prototypes, and franchise opportunities for convenience stores and travel plazas.

Since 1964, Del Taco has been serving freshly prepared, craveable food at an unbeatable value. This rare combination is one of the reasons we are the second largest brand in the Mexican Quick-Service Restaurant (QSR) Industry.

Plus, our flexible prototype can be as small as 1,200 square feet (drive-thru only) all the way up to over 2,00 square feet to include interior seating.

Today, we have grown to +590 locations in +15 states thanks to our incredibly loyal fan base. We are aggressively expanding and currently seeking more convenience stores and travel plazas to partner with across the United States.

Taco Bell

Taco Bell is one of the most well-known burrito franchises in the world. In 1962, their first location was opened in Downey, California by Glen Bell.

In the United States, Taco Bell and their franchisees operate over 7,200 restaurants that serve more than 40 million customers each week.

Their brand is also growing internationally with more than 1,000 restaurants located in 30 countries across the globe.

Qdoba

Qdoba is a fast-casual Mexican restaurant franchise that was founded in 1995 as “Zuma Fresh Mexican Grill” in Denver, CO.

Today, they have grown their taco franchise to over 700 locations across 47 different states along with Canada and Puerto Rico.

Their made-to-order menu features burrito bowls, quesadillas, and tacos. Plus, catering selections when you need to feed a large crowd.

Moe’s

Moe’s Southwest Grill is a fast-casual Mexican restaurant franchise that was founded in Atlanta, GA by Raving Brands on December 9th, 2000.

The Moe’s menu is known for burritos, bowls, tacos, quesadillas, nachos, and salads. They even offer taco meal kits able to feed 4 to 6 people.

They’re looking for franchise owners interested in building a loyal following in their market while embracing their own independent spirit.

Taco John’s

What started as a single taco stand in Cheyenne, WY has become one of the nation’s largest Mexican franchise restaurants.

More than 50 years later, they have grown to over 380 restaurants in 22 states with further plans to expand their taco franchise brand.

Taco John’s has available markets throughout the United States. Target areas include Kentucky, Tennessee, Indiana, Ohio, Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan, Kansas, and Missouri among others.
