US-based Mexican quick service restaurant chain Del Taco has announced the opening of its first Fresh Flex Drive-Through Only location in Albuquerque, New Mexico.
Covering an area of 1,200ft², the new outlet also has a walk-up window for order and pick-up.
Besides, it has pick-up lockers for orders placed via the Del Taco mobile app and third-party delivery service providers.
This feature will help guests and delivery drivers skip the queue.
Del Taco chief development officer Tim Linderman said: “Our Fresh Flex design offers a modern, sleek look that is aligned with our Del Taco Better Mex brand promise – better quality, better value.
“This design allows us to reduce the overall footprint of the building which creates more real estate flexibility and the potential to reduce total buildout costs which will allow us to further accelerate the growth of our brand.”

Last week, the restaurant chain launched its new Fresh Flex outlet in Philadelphia, Mississippi. The brand currently has around 600 restaurants in 15 states.
Del Taco Brand president Chad Gretzema said: “The drive-through-only Fresh Flex design delivers one of the most convenient QSR experiences anywhere. With so many pick-up options, it caters to what today’s tech-savvy and ‘on the go’ consumer expects.
“While the building is smaller in size, we still have the same made-to-order kitchen where we are freshly grilling marinated chicken, preparing guacamole from fresh avocados, and slow cooking our beans from scratch every day.”
