ORLANDO, Fla., Dec. 13, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Del Taco Restaurants, Inc. (NASDAQ: TACO), the nation’s second largest Mexican quick service restaurant*, announces the opening of its much anticipated Fresh Flex location at 5260 US HWY 192 in Kissimmee. Opening on December 14, the new location is the first of the brand’s “Fresh Flex” format, which is designed to provide a more streamlined and convenient experience. The new futuristic layout includes features such as double drive-thru lanes with a dedicated lane for mobile orders and delivery pick-ups, and designated parking lot areas for those who want to park and eat on the go. Fresh Flex locations are easily differentiated from the classic Del Taco design, as the new aesthetic glows bright with Del Taco’s signature green palate against sleek contrasting grey and white walls.
In celebration of the Orlando Fresh Flex grand opening, the first 100 guests through the door of the new location on December 14 starting at 10 a.m., will receive one free Del Taco, Del’s signature crunchy or soft taco filled with seasoned beef, tons of freshly grated cheddar, crisp shredded lettuce and fresh diced tomatoes.
“Fresh Flex really speaks to the modernization of the Del Taco brand both in concept and design. With Orlando being at the forefront of tourism and its locals being longtime fans of the brand, we knew our new futuristic prototype would be well received throughout the city,” said Del Taco CEO, John Cappasola. “Right now, a design that allows for flexibility is crucial as we have seen over the past year and a half. We believe this model solidifies Del Taco’s ability to continue providing delicious, fresh food in a safe environment, regardless of what’s going on in the world and that’s something we are proud to begin sharing with our fans in the Orlando area.”
The newly designed restaurant will continue the Del Taco legacy of conveniently offering guests its signature Mexican favorites while also serving up popular new menu items such as the Stuffed Quesadilla Tacos, available in grilled chicken, crispy chicken and carne asada. Additionally, Orlando-metro residents visiting the new Fresh Flex location can also take advantage of the following gift card promotions happening now through December 29, 2021**:
