Downturn Can’t Slow Taco Maker Expansion

Orlando Sentinel:

The Taco Maker has announced that 25 new stores will open this year around the world, part of an overall development plan for 900 new stores.

About 10 will open in Central Florida this year, a company spokesman said.

The Orlando-based chain already has more than 185 restaurants open in the United States, Latin America and the Far East.

“Even in a slowing economy we continue to see tremendous growth because of our innovative ideas and unmatched quality,” Carlos Budet, president and CEO of The Taco Maker, said in a statement.

Taco Maker is the largest Mexican quick-service restaurant in Puerto Rico. The Puerto Rican-owned restaurant chain recently moved its headquarters to Central Florida.

Some of the new locations may include Jake’s Over the Top, which sells burgers, and Mayan Juice. All three fall under the Taco Maker umbrella.
