Columbus, Ohio-based full-service concept Condado Tacos has received an investment from The Beekman Group private-equity firm, with plans to expand the customizable taco chain, the company announced Monday.

Condado Tacos currently has 15 locations in six markets. The unspecified investment will allow the concept to expand beyond the Midwest and add six to eight new units each year, according to a statement. The chain is slated to open seven restaurants this year, including one in Dayton, Ohio, a new market.

Condado Tacos launched in 2014 and serves fully customizable tacos, with proteins including pulled jackfruit, shrimp ceviche, tequila-lime steak and eggs.

The chain uses a commissary to ensure recipe consistency across the brand while also minimizing the size of its kitchens.

New York City-based Beekman Group is a franchisor of the Another Broken Egg Cafe breakfast and lunch chain as well as Ted’s Cafe Escondido, a Mexican casual-dining concept.
