Jimboy’s Tacos, home of the parmesan-dusted Original American Taco, has opened its newest location in Lemmon Valley, Nevada at 310 Lemmon Drive. Franchisee Peter Francis first became involved with the Jimboy’s Tacos brand when he was hired for a back-of-house position after high school, and has since worked his way up through the franchise and currently owns three additional Jimboy’s Tacos stores in Reno and Sparks, NV.
The 65 year old concept originally started as a simple food trailer on the shores of Kings Beach in Lake Tahoe, CA. With sights set on serving the best tasting taco on the market, founder Jim “Jimboy” Knudson created the Original Ground Beef Taco, which has remained the brand’s best-selling menu item since its conception in 1954. The iconic taco, which Food Network Star Guy Fieri has called a ‘guilty pleasure’ taco, is made fresh at each Jimboy’s Tacos location with seasoned ground beef, freshly shredded cheese, and lettuce in a crispy, stone-ground corn shell dusted with parmesan cheese – a Jimboy’s Tacos signature.
Jimboy’s Tacos currently operates more than 40 locations in California and Nevada. The growing brand is actively seeking franchise partners to continue its West Coast growth and begin bringing Jimboy’s Tacos to the Sun Belt states.
