Taco John’s Brooks Speirs Talks Franchise Growth Opportunities

Vice President of Franchise Development Brooks Speirs recently spoke about Taco John’s growth and momentum in the Kansas City Business Journal and Milwaukee Business Journal. With plans to bring dozens of new franchise restaurants to markets across the country, our brand expects promise for growth in both real estate and job markets far and wide following the lift of stay-at-home orders.

Speirs, who is confident about growth, mentioned to the Kansas City Business Journal that even before the pandemic, Taco John’s “drive-thru business comprised just under 65% of sales.”

In May, same store sales actually grew by over nine percent compared to the same period last year.

“We have not changed our expansion plans at all,” Speirs told the Kansas City Business Journal. “We’ve actually probably increased them with the fact of how successful we’ve been through the Covid (pandemic).”

With cheaper real estate and an abundant workforce due to a less-saturated market, now is the time to explore franchising with Taco John’s. As the experts in drive-thru, we’re well-positioned for growth in today’s market – our nearly 65% drive-thru business history has kept our restaurants busy in recent months.

No matter where we’re looking to grow, the Taco John’s franchise development team anticipates a strong opportunity for passionate entrepreneurs seeking to beef up their portfolios. Fueled by more than five decades of steady growth, a significant footprint of nearly 400 units open today and new, high-voltage branding, Taco John’s is an attractive investment for entrepreneurs seeking a reliable opportunity in today’s uncertain environment.

As we ramp up franchising in markets across the country, we’re targeting well-capitalized franchisees with experience in restaurants or as executives leading high-performing teams. We invite you to join our legacy brand and discover all that our bigger, better, bolder Mexican QSR franchise has to offer.

With a fresh look and a plan to add more than 75 stores in the next few years, Wyoming-based Taco John’s is having something of a rebirth 52-plus years into its life. 

In fact, unlike the recent trend that finds quite a few one-time QSRs (Captain D’s and Cousins Subs, for example) converting to the trendier fast-casual category, Taco John’s remains quick service. And, if you ask today’s podcast guest, Taco John’s Vice President of Franchising Brooks Speirs, he will tell you that fast casuals should think more about imitating the prowess of QSRs. 

So, grab one of the brand’s quesadilla tacos and some Potato Oles and listen to what’s up in the Wild West World of Taco John’s.
