Del Taco has announced plans to open more than 40 restaurants in the Houston market, with the first opening March 28.
Del Taco began its Texas expansion in the Dallas/Ft. Worth market. Throughout the past 18 months, the Mexican QSR chain has opened seven Texas locations including Dallas, Denton, Hurst, McKinney, Plano and Watauga.
The first Houston location will open on Westheimer Road and is owned and operated by RPM Hospitality LLC, whose principals include Pramod Patel, Purendra Patel and Rahul Patel. This is the first of three locations planned by RPM Hospitality LLC.
"Del Taco is a well known concept and we have long appreciated Del Taco's fresh taste and high quality food. We believe that consumers prefer fresh, made to order food over the alternatives. We expect Del Taco's great taste, menu variety and positive customer experience to be well received in Houston," said Manny Patel, operations manager at RPM Hospitality LLC.
Del Taco's menu includes tacos, burritos, quesadillas and nachos, as well as American favorites such as burgers, crinkle-cut fries and shakes. All menu items are made to order. Del Taco also serves breakfast and most restaurants are open 24 hours with a drive thru.
Currently, Del Taco has more than 530 restaurants in 17 states.
