“I’ve been with TacoTime for more than 30 years,” says Kevin Gingrich, Brand President of TacoTime and owner of several TacoTime franchise locations in Utah. “Now as TacoTime moves forward, we want to find entrepreneurs who not only love the food and are passionate about the food, but who also have the desire to grow in their communities. Now is a great time to become a TacoTime franchise owner.”

New franchisees attend training in Scottsdale, AZ for a week long classroom training session. In addition, new franchisees spend 8-10 days in a store where they cover every aspect of their new business.

Beyond training, there is expansive support for opening a store: from pre-opening and real estate support, to in store training and grand opening support. Each franchisee is assigned a Regional Director of Operations who provides on-going and day to day support.

Ideal Candidate

  • A low initial investment, TacoTime is the chance for new and experienced entrepreneurs alike to bring the premier Mexican food franchise to their communities
