Dothan, AL - (November 19, 2012) - During the summer of 2012, Del Taco signed a twenty unit development agreement with Larry Blumberg and Associates ("LBA") to take the Del Taco brand to new markets in Alabama and Northern Florida.
LBA has quickly moved forward, breaking ground today on its first Del Taco restaurant in the company's home city of Dothan, Alabama. The very popular Mexican-American style quick serve restaurant will be located at 4700 West Main Street, expected to open April 2013.
Developed and operated by LBA, and built by LBA Construction under the leadership of Senior Vice President for Commercial Development Bill Davis, this Del Taco restaurant will be sized at 2,720 square feet, featuring seventy-two seats and a drive-thru, will be open twenty four hours, seven days a week and have approximately twenty employees.
Davis says: "Dothan was the logical choice for our first store, our home town, a friendly business climate and a big appetite for Mexican-American food. This is a winning combination for LBA and Del Taco; we are really excited to bring the taste of Del Taco to Alabama and Northern Florida."
Dothan's Del Taco restaurant will serve three meals a day; all menu items will use fresh ingredients including cheddar cheese grated from forty pound blocks, handmade salsa, slow cooked lard free beans, and marinated chicken grilled in the restaurant.
The menu will feature popular Mexican items such as tacos, burritos, quesadilla's and nachos; as well as American favorites cooked-to-order burgers, crinkle cut fries, and handmade shakes.
In addition to this first location in Dothan, LBA is planning at least a dozen Del Taco restaurants in Alabama (Huntsville, Montgomery, Birmingham, and Tuscaloosa) as well as locations in Tallahassee and Jacksonville, Florida. "The experienced team at Larry Blumberg and Associates will drive Del Taco's success in these new markets," says Paul Murphy, Del Taco's CEO. "We are excited to have in LBA a franchise partner who deeply values service and knows how to deliver top-quality customer value."
