Capital Tacos — a Tampa, Florida-based chain that is expanding quickly after winning several honors from national magazines, will jump the Mississippi River for the first time as it opens three Boulder County locations beginning in 2023 under a new
franchise agreement. Father-daughter duo Jason and Marilyn Scoby will open the fast-casual Tex-Mex eateries in and around Boulder and Longmont.
Capital Tacos offers its flavors in a taco, burrito or bowl, including fajita chicken and bacon in a chipotle BBQ sauce, shaved steak with a three-cheese blend, tiger shrimp in a rice wine vinegar glaze and more traditional offerings like pork carnitas. It also serves appetizers like Mexican street corn and queso bites with dipping sauce, main dishes like monster quesadillas and crazy fries and desserts such as mini churros and traditional Mexican cheesecake.

“Marilyn and I share a deep passion for food, as well as the desire to build something together that’s our own,” Jason Scoby said in a news release. “We went on a national search for a restaurant concept dedicated to true innovation and serving uniquely delicious food. That’s when we found Capital Tacos, a brand defined by a mission to deliver the most flavorful Tex-Mex out there – a flavor that’s truly been lacking here in Colorado for quite some time – and has the track record, guest recognition and awards to back it up.”

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.”
