Capital Tacos is partnering with CloudKitchens to expand their newly-launched franchise concept to five U.S. cities, with Miami among the first choices for development. The Tampa-born restaurant will also see continued growth in Orlando, Atlanta, Nashville, and Charlotte.

Established in 2013, Capital Tacos specializes in Tex-Mex cuisine served in a fast casual setting. Their Chef-inspired menu includes the Mean Verde Taco with Fried Avocado, Crazy Fries loaded with Queso and toppings, plus burritos and Mexican Rice bowls.

“After having spent the better part of a decade perfecting such a company, we’re exhilarated to be able to bring that experience to as many people as possible, starting with these first five markets,” shares Capital Tacos Partner Josh Luger in a recent press release.

You can currently find four Capital Tacos and one Capital Tacos Express open in the Tampa Bay region. Capital Tacos Express is a concept they hope to replicate in their growth plans alongside virtual restaurant pros, CloudKitchens.

Capital Tacos is currently seeking Franchise Partners and scouting second generation restaurant spaces to begin growth through the next three quarters of 2022. That said, representatives for Capital Tacos told What Now Miami this week that no locations have been secured at this time. For now, they will focus on growing their Miami reach through online ordering with CloudKitchens.



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.”
