Del Taco opens new location here near Lowe’s
Philadelphia’s new Del Taco is now open with a sleek “Fresh Flex” design option for easy ordering and food pickup.
Construction on the restaurant on on Frog Level Road off the bypass near Lowe’s started earlier this year and co-owner of the franchise Tyrone Smith said he expects the new location will bring new jobs to the community and give residents a variety of fresh Mexican dishes to choose from.
The new location is the first Del Taco in the state of Mississippi, and plans for more locations across Mississippi and Alabama are currently in place.
Franchisee Brandon Jones said people have been anticipating this Del Taco for months and he is confident customers will quickly fall in love with the high-quality food and stellar customer service the chain is known for.
“We’re honored to have the opportunity to introduce the great state of Mississippi to Del Taco with this new location in Philadelphia,” Jones said.
This restaurant is built in the all-new “Fresh Flex” layout which offers a sleek, modernized design with bold color palettes, including a glowing green tower and the brand’s iconic sun logo muraled on the wall. Customers on the go can utilize a double drive-thru lanes and pick-up lockers with QR code capabilities for third-party delivery services.
As part of the brand’s Menu of Venues business model, Fresh Flex layouts are designed to provide a more streamlined and convenient experience for guests and showcase Del Taco’s working kitchen.
Tim Moore, executive director of the Philadelphia-Neshoba Chamber of Commerce, said the new Del Taco is happy people like Tyrone Smith have invested in the community and urges residents to give the restaurant a try.
“It’s in a prime location, it’s a good chain, and it’s run by some of the best people we have in town,” Moore said. “It’ll have a very positive impact on the community.”
The Philadelphia location will continue the chain’s legacy of offering customers delicious signature favorites, and each dish is prepared fresh in the restaurant's working kitchen.
People dining in can expect quality ingredients like freshly grilled chicken and carne asada steak, fresh house-grated cheddar cheese, slow-cooked beans made from scratch, signature creamy Queso Blanco, fresh house-made guacamole and new signature sauce flavors.
Classic menu items are also on the table, including a wide variety of tacos, Epic Burritos, quesadillas, beverages and Del Taco’s famous Crinkle Cut fries. The company also delivers the largest value menu in the QSR industry with the “20 Under $2” menu featuring a wide variety of tacos, burritos, a quesadilla, and beverages.
The Del Taco chain was founded in 1964 and serves more than three million guests weekly today at approximately 600 restaurants across 15 states. It is currently the second-largest Mexican quick service restaurant in the United States.
