Founder Rusty Fenton knew that “Tacos are the Most Important Meal of the Day”®, and that continues to be our mantra here at Rusty Taco. That’s why we emphasize extensive training and support for our franchisees. If you’re looking for one of the best taco franchise opportunities, you can be assured that Rusty Taco is prepared to help you achieve your business ownership goals.

Taco Franchise Training

Franchisees participate in a comprehensive training program conducted at one of our corporate restaurants for the Operating Principal and District Manager or Restaurant Manager roles. Our initial training details how to establish and operate a Rusty Taco location, including all phases of restaurant opening and closing procedures, food preparation and presentation, pricing, customer service issues, employee training and relations, budgeting, purchasing, inventory control and disposition, comprehensive marketing and maintenance of quality standards. Training will last approximately 28 to 35 days.

After initial training, our taco franchise owners receive 10 days of onsite training, extending to grand opening assistance. Additionally, we provide ongoing training after a location’s grand opening.

Franchisee Support

Extensive support for our taco franchise owners begins with our Development Agreements and continues throughout the lifetime of these Agreements.

  • Real estate/design/construction support: Support and criteria for targeted site selections, as well as specifications and consultations on building your Rusty Taco restaurants.
