US-based taco restaurant company Condado Tacos has announced its plan to open 90 to 100 restaurants by 2026.

The restaurant chain, which serves tacos, margaritas and tequilas, opened its 39th restaurant on 17 November in Kalamazoo, Michigan.

A total of 12 new restaurants are scheduled to open in 2023, of which six will be in new markets for the company.

The restaurant company said that some of the new markets that it plans to enter next year include St Louis, Missouri; Louisville, Kentucky; Knoxville, Tennessee; Greenville, South Carolina; and Birmingham, Alabama.

Condado Tacos features a full bar with a large collection of 100% blue agave tequilas and a menu of speciality margaritas.

Condado Tacos president CEO Chris Artinian said: “We are thrilled to announce our goal to grow Condado Tacos significantly over the next few years.

“Offering clean, craveable, fresh ingredient-driven tacos, margs, and tequilas at a great value, with an average check of under $20, we provide a full-service dining experience unlike any other, and our partners at The Beekman Group are fully committed to our growth plan within existing and new markets.”

Established in 2014, Condado Tacos is backed by the private equity firm The Beekman Group.

It has positioned itself as a full-service restaurant company and fits into the Nextgen casual category of restaurant growth concepts.

Since its inception, the restaurant company has expanded its footprint to 39 locations in 13 markets, which include Cincinnati, Cleveland and Columbus in Ohio, as well as Detroit, Michigan; Indianapolis, Indiana; Lexington, Kentucky; Nashville, Tennessee; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania; and Charlotte, North Carolina.
