Cheyenne, Wyo. — Taco John’s International Inc., a leading quick-service Mexican franchise, announced that same-store sales are up at the brand for the third month in a row. From May through August, comp sales were up by an average of 6.85% each month.
“The way our system has been able to maneuver and grow through this pandemic is incredible and speaks to the recession-resistant nature of our franchise model,” says Brooks Speirs, vice president for franchise development at the legacy brand.
Taco John’s has celebrated nearly half a dozen openings since the outset of the pandemic across Ohio, Illinois, Tennessee and Indiana. Additionally, the brand recently hired a new chief marketing officer and chief operating officer.
“The wind is at our back — the momentum behind our brand is so exciting,” adds Speirs. “We’re growing, adding to our menu and experiencing unprecedented sales growth. We’ve thrived for more than 50 years through strong economic times and slowdowns alike. Today is no different. If there’s one thing we’ve proven, it’s that Taco John’s is here to stay.”
Taco John’s is seeking to grow through franchising with qualified operators through the end of the year. The brand also is rolling out a systemwide remodel program.
Launched in 1969, Taco John’s has more than 380 stores open across 22 states. For more information, visit www.tacojohnsfranchise.com.
