(businesspress24) - LAKE FOREST, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/13/17 -- (NASDAQ: TACO), the nation''s second leading Mexican quick service restaurant* (MQSR), today announced its enhanced franchise growth incentive program for 2017, geared specifically toward multi-unit operators looking to expand their portfolio with a winning brand.

Due to the strong demand from new and existing franchisees to expand with Del Taco beyond current markets, the program applies to eligible franchisees who commit to opening a minimum of five Del Taco restaurants in a new market within a specified time frame. Designed to attract franchisees with an appetite for multi-unit expansion, the incentives include discounted initial fees and reduced royalties for up to three years, driving unit level profitability early on in the initial entrance phase of development in a new market.

"The growth and success that Del Taco has experienced over recent years is a testament to the strength of our business model," said Laura Tanaka, director of franchise development at Del Taco. "Our accomplishments have helped propel our franchise initiatives forward, and we''re thrilled to continue to expand our brand in a disciplined and measured fashion with multi-unit franchise partners across specific regional geographies."

Demonstrated by 14 consecutive quarters of system wide same-store sales increases, Del Taco presents enormous growth potential for experienced multi-unit operators looking to diversify their business portfolio. This includes opportunities across the Southeastern U.S., where the company has recently experienced tremendous activity with several new multi-unit franchise partners, as well as in growth markets across the Pacific Northwest. The brand currently has more than 550 locations across 15 states, presenting opportunities both in existing and new markets. This means eligible franchisees now have the extra incentive to bring Del Taco''s craveable Mexican favorites and American classics to raving fans that are vocal about their favorite hometown brand opening in their city.
