As we embark on the New Year, Capital Tacos, the emerging corner taco shop turned nationally-awarded Tex-Mex restaurant franchise, is gearing up for a period of unprecedented growth. 2022 was a year that exceeded the brand’s expressed expectations and left it ready to establish franchised and corporate brick-and-mortar flagships in states throughout the country in 2023.
The momentum of the Capital Tacos brand has become undeniable in these last 12 months. Its first brick & mortar outside Tampa, based in Winter Park, FL, opened to much fanfare. Its first franchise, part of a multi-unit development deal for 3 restaurants in the Tampa Bay area, opened successfully in Trinity, FL, with additional multi-unit franchise deals sold as close as Orlando and as far out as Colorado.
In 2023, as the Tex-Mex space continues to carve out a significant market share in the QSR category, the Capital Tacos team anticipates their brick & mortar store count rising to more than 20 by year-end, with multiple units expected in Charlotte, Atlanta, Orlando, and South Florida. The brand also intends to expand its food trailer footprint considerably, across all active markets.
“The depth of support given to us by the Capital Tacos team to help prepare us for opening the doors to our franchise was astounding,” said Bill Hoopes, Capital Tacos franchisee. “It helped equip us and our team with the tools and insights we needed to come out of the gate swinging. That, along with the unique quality of the product and the strength of the brand, has led to business performance that has far surpassed even our most optimistic expectations so far.” https://capitaltacosfranchise.com/
