Del Taco Restaurants, Inc. recently announced a franchise deal with former NFL player and experienced multi-unit franchisee Donnell Thompson. Operating under DT Group Inc., Thompson plans to add five new locations throughout his hometown of East Atlanta, with openings slated to begin in 2018.
“One of the key points for us was that Del Taco, unlike other quick service restaurants, actually prepares food fresh in its working kitchens,” said Thompson. “No other QSR in Atlanta offers this high level of freshness and quality with the value and speed of a drive-thru concept. It’s our goal to make Del Taco a household name in the region.”
With a focus on the southeastern regions of the United States, Del Taco is building a stronger national presence by entering new territories while infilling existing markets. Demonstrated by 13 consecutive quarters of system-wide same store sales increases, Del Taco is a brand on the rise and presents enormous growth potential for experienced multi-unit operators looking to diversify their portfolios.
