Del Taco expands to Virginia with 10 locations
Restaurants will be in Hampton Roads
California-based Del Taco Restaurants Inc. is expanding its taco empire into Virginia with 10 new locations, the company announced Monday.
Del Taco signed a deal with Virginia Beach-based franchise group Virginia Taco. The nation’s second-largest Mexican quick service restaurant will have locations in Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Portsmouth, Norfolk, Hampton and Newport News. The exact locations were not specified.
“Since inception in 2000, we’ve been able to rapidly expand our portfolio to include household names such as Subway, Tropical Smoothie, Mahi’s and more and are thrilled to add Del Taco to that list,” said Bharat Patel, CEO of Virginia Taco. “Del Taco is an influential brand, so the opportunity to introduce it to the state of Virginia was one that we wanted to jump on immediately. We know that the concept, combined with our expertise in this market, is a great partnership and we look forward to seeing many years of growth ahead.”
The expansion into Virginia paves the way for further growth in the South, the company said.
