Franchising Back in Time: How Taco John’s Became a Legacy Brand!

What was once a small taco stand in Cheyenne, WY in 1968 quickly became a nationwide favorite. When two local businessmen decided to share their impeccable taco flavors with the world, Taco John’s began franchising. As Taco John’s started spreading across the Midwest, our locations evolved to include drive-thrus and interior seating across all new developments.

Customers flocked to our doors for the unique flavors that make our brand stand out in the food industry. Our Potato Olés® became renowned, our handmade salsas and Meat & Potato Burritos became a huge hit, and our customers couldn’t get enough of our Churros. That’s not even scratching the surface. Ever heard of Taco Tuesday®? That was us!

Today, Taco John’s continues to thrive in the Mexican food segment for its trendsetting innovation, unmatched menu items and unique location styles, both rural and urban. With more than 50 years of experience, our brand now operates and franchises nearly 400 restaurants across the U.S. – making it one of the largest Mexican quick-service restaurant brands in the country. With an AUV of $1.69 million and honorable recognitions in publications like Franchise Times’ Dealmakers Awards list for our deal with the Meritage Hospitality Group, our brand proves to be an exceptional franchise opportunity time and time again.

Amid all our growth, Taco John’s still has room for expansion. Want to be a part of a legacy brand and own a franchise that has incomparable history?
