TACO JOHN’S® LAUNCHES NEW RECRUITING WEBSITE

July 15, 2015

aco John’s, one of America’s fastest-growing Mexican fast food franchises, has launched a new franchising website. The site, tacojohnsfranchise.com, features Q&As with franchisees, video interviews with the Taco John’s leadership team, startup costs and revenue figures, and details about the fast food industry at large.

Taco John’s is seeing rapid growth and gaining ground as Mexican fast food rapidly rises in popularity. In 2014, the company announced the planned opening of 25 locations across the United States, as well as a significant increase in same-store sales, which was more than double the growth rate in the overall quick-service restaurant industry.

WHY WE ARE UNIQUELY POISED FOR RAPID GROWTH IN A WIDE-OPEN MARKET

Six pack of hard shell tacos and a pound of Potato Oles from Taco John’s.“Our numbers and the growing popularity of Mexican food point to a huge opportunity for franchisees, particularly multi-unit franchisees who are looking to expand into a new category,” says Jeff Linville, CEO of Taco John’s. “Millennials and Gen Xers want food that is authentic, that uses real ingredients, and that has bold, spicy flavors. Taco John’s already has a strong following, and there is only one nationwide competitor in the Mexican quick-service restaurant (QSR) category. We’ve competed head-to-head against that brand, successfully, for more than four decades. We are poised for dramatic growth. Taco John’s will become the fastest-growing Mexican quick-service brand in America.”

Taco John’s is one of the largest Mexican fast food brands in the United States, approaching 400 restaurants in 27 states. Taco John’s was founded in 1969 and has built a strong following in the central and north central United States. We are now bringing our fresh, fast concept to the rest of the nation, particularly areas east of the Mississippi, where the fast-growing Mexican QSR category currently offers only one national competitor — there is a demand for alternatives!

THE PUBLIC WANTS HIGH-QUALITY, AFFORDABLE MEXICAN FAST FOOD

The Mexican QSR category is outpacing the fast food industry, according to an NPD Group report1 on restaurant traffic. While traffic to hamburger, sandwich and Asian QSR concepts fell in the third quarter of 2014, traffic to Mexican QSRs grew 5%. Taco John’s has a time-tested and proven menu and a highly experienced, results-oriented team driving the business forward.

Tom Clarke, who owns a Taco John’s Mexican food franchise in Long Island, New York, says customers have flocked to his restaurant. Tom has seen firsthand how the brand’s commitment to quality, freshness and bold, original flavors is perfectly aligned with diners’ preferences.

“I’ve been amazed at how often people in New York line up for Mexican food,” Tom says. “The public opened up to a whole new profile of food. Millennials want good-tasting variety in their food; soda and fries alone don’t cut it anymore. Taco John’s gives me the ability to expand and sell the flavor profiles my customers want.”
