"We have been contacted for years about expanding throughout the state of Alabama and are excited to work with local franchisees to grow our brand in these dynamic communities," said a company spokesperson. "We believe that our quality food and great customer service, combined with the entrepreneurial spirit of these Alabama metropolitan areas, will create a winning combination."

Taco Casa has been a family favorite in Tuscaloosa for almost 50 years and their tacos, burritos, "sanchos" and more are staples for fans of their six locations in Tuscaloosa and Northport. Right now only one restaurant is open outside of Tuscaloosa County, on Wildwood Parkway in Homewood, but it appears that will soon change.

Taco Casa said interested parties should be dedicated, motivated and passionate about customer service. They are also looking for experience in food service and a commitment to the local community.
