Ep. 37 - From Foodie to Franchisor: How Capital Tacos is Changing the Game

Capital Tacos is a fast-casual Tex-Mex cuisine franchise making waves in the industry. Capital Tacos has 13 corporate and 3 franchise locations and is ready and positioned to spread across the United States today! 

Josh Luger, Co-Founder of, joins Stacie Shannon in this episode to share how the brand originated and breaks-down the franchise model, which offers three different types of investment to fit almost any lifestyle choice. 

From the onset, Josh shares how he and his partner wanted “to do something special that could be scaleable and shared with others down the road.” After visiting hundreds of fast-casual restaurants around the US and taste-testing food, they ultimately came up with the scratch-made Tex-Mex cuisine offering. When asked what defines “scratch-made,” Josh shares that “everything on their menu is made-to-order for every guest.” From a finance and business development background, Josh recognizes that “going into business for yourself, one needs to recognize their skillsets and be aware of what skillsets are needed to supplement them with, then align yourself with the right partners.” And that’s precisely what Capital Tacos offers to its franchisee partners. As they have scaled the brand through its corporate locations, Capital Tacos has tried, tested, and implemented the systems and processes to provide the ultimate support. 

Capital Tacos also offers three different business models. Franchise owners can choose between a brick-and-mortar restaurant, a fixed trailer, or a mobile event trailer based on what is most in demand in their market and fits their financial and lifestyle goals.! Overall, the Capital Tacos franchise opportunity is an exciting and lucrative possibility for those interested in the fast-casual dining industry. 

In 2022, Capital Tacos had some noteworthy economics to share. Brick & Mortar: $1,489,367 in Average Revenue, $601,455 in Gross Profit*, Static Trailer Pro Forma: $332,148 in Annual Revenue, $115,572 Monthly in Pre-Taxed Profits*, Event Trailer Pro Forma: $108,000 in Annual Revenue, $44,712 Annual in Pre-Taxed Profits*. *Refer to the 2023 Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) for more information.
