Capital Tacos, a Tex-Mex franchise that opened its first brick-and-mortar store outside Tampa, Fla. in 2022, has announced development plans that will more than triple the restaurant’s footprint in 2023.

Capital Tacos anticipates their brick-and-mortar store count to rise to more than 20 units by year’s end. With a backlog of corporate leases, multiple units are expected in North Carolina, Georgia and Florida. The brand also intends to expand its food trailer footprint considerably, across all active markets.

From a franchising perspective, Capital Tacos offers a low cost of entry and an opportunity to customize each location

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.”
