The Biggest Franchise Deal In Taco John’s History

We’re thrilled to announce our biggest deal EVER as Meritage Hospitality Group becomes the latest Taco John’s franchise organization. The agreement includes 50 new units opening across several states over four years, with the option to build 150 more units after the initial 50.

Together, Meritage Hospitality Group and Taco John’s are fully embracing our Bigger. Bolder. Better. philosophy as we plan the biggest expansion in Taco John’s history. The Meritage Hospitality Group, the largest Wendy’s operator in the country with more than 300 units across 16 states, is the perfect partner to bring Taco John’s to the next level.

“Taco John’s is the perfect fit for our company. While exploring concepts to expand our portfolio, we were quickly attracted to Taco John’s,” said Gary Rose, president and COO of Meritage Hospitality Group. “We are excited about the Mexican restaurant segment and the Bigger, Bolder, Better direction of the brand. We’re excited to open our first restaurants near our headquarters in west Michigan in 2022.”

Here at Taco John’s we’re just as excited to have Meritage Hospitality Group on board and to serve more communities with our delicious, quality-made food.

“This is historic for our brand,” said Brooks Speirs, vice president for franchise development. “As we begin our aggressive growth into new markets, there is no better partner than Meritage. While getting to know the group, I’ve been impressed with the organizational infrastructure, attention to detail, commitment to people, operations capabilities and development of top-notch restaurants. The best is yet to come for Taco John’s!”
