TORONTO — Quesada Burritos and Tacos, a fast-casual Toronto-based Mexican chain, is expanding across Canada, with the addition of three area developers in Toronto, Eastern Ontario and Western Quebec.
The plan is to add at least 90 new restaurants within the next five years.
“This brings the number of restaurants under contract to 150 and marks the halfway point in our goal to open 300 restaurants across Canada,” said Tom O’Neill, president of the burgeoning franchise, which is seeking more area developers in Western Canada and the Maritimes. “We are not looking to be the fastest-growing or the largest chain. We want to be the first choice among consumers and that means focus on quality and taste. And, we want to be the first choice for franchisees and that means low cost, quality real estate and profitable operations.”
The Mexican chain was founded in 2004 and has since won accolades for its fresh, healthful options. Today, there are more than a dozen Quesada restaurants across Canada.
