Del Taco Opens First Drive-Thru Only Location Using New Store Design



Del Taco®, the Mexican quick-service restaurant chain, has announced the debut of its New “Fresh Flex” Drive-Thru Only location. Opening in Albuquerque, NM, the location’s small footprint spans just 1,200 square feet. 

“Our Fresh Flex design offers a modern, sleek look that is aligned with our Del Taco® Better Mex® brand promise – better quality, better value,” says Tim Linderman, Chief Development Officer. “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.” 

In addition to the drive-thru lane, the new design features a walk-up window for ordering and pick-up. To increase drive-thru efficiency, this new design provides pick-up lockers for orders placed via the Del Taco mobile app and third-party delivery service providers, allowing guests and delivery drivers to skip the line. 

“The drive-thru-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,” said Chad Gretzema, Brand President of Del Taco. “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. This combination of fresh food, unbeatable convenience and best in class value truly delivers Del Taco® Better Mex®.” 

The Del Taco Fresh Flex store designs feature a “Menu of Venues” ranging from the drive-thru-only model to free-standing, end cap and conversion locations, giving Del Taco franchisees more flexibility with space, order fulfillment, and a greater expansion of the brand and their franchise locations across the country.
