Capital Tacos began 2022 by launching a new franchise opportunity.

The fast casual was founded in 2013 in a 1,000-square-foot storefront in Land O’ Lakes, Florida. The chain has since expanded to five units throughout the state, each with its unique atmosphere. As Capital Tacos moves further into franchising, it plans to keep that individualistic mindset by seeking second-generation spaces and transforming them. Target markets are Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, Tennessee, Arkansas, Alabama, Missouri, and Louisiana.

The company is prepped with a tech stack that includes Punchh, Olo, and Koala, and proprietary, custom-built kitchen display systems. Restaurants have seen a double-digit revenue increase over 2019, and a majority of the chain’s revenue is now digital.

“We’ve had literally hundreds of requests over the years—from guests who have visited our stores locally across Florida and from states across the country—asking if and how they can bring Capital to their hometown,” said Josh Luger, Capital Tacos’ operating partner and co-owner. “We’ve spent years with our heads down, building out and bulletproofing the concept before going back to these folks, as we are now, saying, ‘yes, you can’ and ‘here’s how.’ And the timing to do so is better than ever.”

How Much do Franchise Owners Make?

“Some researchers have tried to crunch the numbers with the aim of helping potential franchise owners get an idea of the income that they can expect by buying a franchise. According to a survey done by Franchise Business Review involving 28,500 franchise owners, the average pre-tax annual income of franchise owners is about 80,000 dollars. However, this number should be taken with a grain of salt bearing in mind that it could be inflated by high incomes of a few top performers. When researchers accounted for the inflations caused by the few top franchises, it was established that the average annual income of 51 percent of franchisees is less than 50,000 dollars. The study also found that only 7 percent of franchise owners earn over 250,000 dollars a year.

The survey by Franchise Business Review also found that about 21 percent of franchise opportunities are in the quick-service restaurants’ industry. This is despite the fact that restaurant businesses require a bigger initial investment compared to some other businesses with almost similar profit potential. On average, franchise owners in the restaurant industry take home about 82,000 dollars a year. However, the start-up cost can be anywhere between 100,000 dollars and a million dollars.”
