Del Taco has big plans for its new prototype.
This week’s episode of the Restaurant Business podcast “A Deeper Dive” features John Cappasola, CEO of the 600-unit Mexican chain, to talk about the chain’s “Fresh Flex” prototype and why the new design can help the company expand in the post-pandemic era.
Del Taco, like many other fast-food chains, has developed a new prototype that focuses on the drive-thru and other takeout ordering strategies such as delivery. Cappasola discusses these strategies and how the company plans to operate them.
But the flexibility in the design can also help accommodate real estate needs. With so much demand for drive-thru locations, that flexibility could be necessary as Del Taco expands in places like Florida and Georgia.
