Restaurant chain Del Taco to open 39 new outlets in US

RBR Staff Writer Published 21 August 2013

US-based restaurant chain Del Taco has inked deals with seven new franchise partners to develop 39 new restaurants across the country.

The new restaurants will be developed in Central California, Colorado, Georgia, New Mexico, South Carolina and Texas.

In addition, the food chain has announced five new markets for multi-unit development and a search for new franchise partners.

This move is part of the company's aim to expand the brand footprint beyond Southern California to new markets in the East through franchise route.

The proposed new franchise outlets, under the deal, are scheduled to open over the next 10 years. Recently, the chain opened first outlet in Alabama.

The second store will be opened in Oklahoma, which is scheduled for the end of 2013.

Further, the new markets where Del Taco is looking to develop multi-units and add new franchise partners include Seattle/Portland (60 restaurants), Houston/San Antonio (65 restaurants), Southern Georgia (Macon/Augusta/Savannah, 22 restaurants), Tampa/St. Petersburg (44 restaurants), and Charleston, S.C. (9 restaurants).
