Capital Tacos Secures First Franchise Deal in North Carolina

by Katie Lee

Raleigh, N.C. — Capital Tacos, a small-town taco shop turned nationally-acclaimed Tex-Mex restaurant franchise, has secured the brand’s first-ever franchise agreement for the state of North Carolina; the first unit will open in spring 2024 in Raleigh.

David and Silvia Robertson, the husband-and-wife duo bringing the brand to North Carolina, combine his 25 years of sales leadership experience in the IT market with her background in the operations and quality control of various restaurant brands.

The deal is for a single unit, although the Robertsons have each expressed an intention to introduce additional Capital Tacos locations throughout the Raleigh market in the years ahead.

“This truly feels like a full-circle moment. Silvia and I met working in a restaurant out in Las Vegas 30 years ago, and now, we’re realizing a dream and opening one together,” says David Robertson.

Since launching its franchise program in early 2022, Capital Tacos has expanded far beyond its Tampa, Fla., home base, with brick-and-mortar restaurants open or under development in Atlanta; Charlotte, N.C.; Denver; Tulsa, Okla.; Nashville, Tenn.; New Jersey; Raleigh, N.C.; and markets throughout Florida — many of which have opened just in the past few months.

“After having just debuted our first corporate-owned location in Charlotte, it’s incredible to see the fervor for the franchise materialize across North Carolina so quickly,” says Josh Luger, co-founder of Capital Tacos. “Both David and Silvia will make wonderful additions to the Capital Tacos franchise community.”
