Become A Taco Mayo Franchise Owner

The Mexican impression is one of the “hottest” opportunities in quick-service marketing. While the market is saturated with outlets for hamburgers, sandwiches, pizza and other quick-service menus, TACO MAYO offers a unique variety targeted toward a Tex-Mex-hungry population.

TACO MAYO proudly serves a varied menu of classic favorites such as crispy and soft beef tacos, tostadas, bean burritos, potato locos, and fresh grilled quesadillas, but also our new Fresh Mex create-your-own, Burritos, Nachos and and Taco Salads. All of our items are created under strict quality control guidelines that require the finest, freshest ingredients.

For Your Information: MAYO (pronounce My-oh) is defined as an abbreviation of a word “Maypole”. It is more commonly known as the Spanish word for the month of May.


Important reasons for you to become a member of the TACOMAYO franchise universe.

This network creates volume-buying savings that are reflected in food, paper and other supply costs. It is also important to note that TACO MAYO uses proprietary products made to TACO MAYO specifications and formulas.

This approach ensures systemwide product quality and consistency. It is also more cost-efficient.

You will, in most cases, belong to an active advertising/marketing co-op, where each member contributes 3% toward an on-going television and radio presence.

Expert marketing creates promotions during the year to help you boost sales and reach out to new customers.TACO MAYO creates and produces national quality advertising that ranges from radio and television commercials to point-of-purchase to printed pieces for direct mail/inserts.

TACO MAYO has created a highly marketable concept. It’s a concept based on combining consumer demand for convenience and value with delicious made-to-order products. We capitalize on the current low market penetration of any kind of quick service Tex-Mex restaurants. You are not battling the huge number of hamburger stores.

Thus, you get both a great marketplace opportunity as well as the opportunity to be a part of a proven success.
