When your brand has developed over 71,175 outlets worldwide you might think it was time to take a break and enjoy a Slurpee on the front steps. Not at 7-Eleven where they just opened the first-ever Laredo Taco Co. drive-thru restaurant at its newest 7-Eleven Evolution store.
Here are the facts, owned and operated by 7-Eleven, Laredo Taco Co. is an authentic Mexican quick-service restaurant with locations in more than 500 Stripes and 7-Eleven convenience stores. It is known for its handmade flour tortillas that are made from scratch daily in-store as well as its fresh salsa bar with a wide selection of salsas and pico de gallo. Tacos and meals include specialties not always seen in quick-serve Mexican restaurants such as authentic beef barbacoa, chorizo, carne asada, carnitas and breakfast tacos made with fresh-cracked eggs, according to the company.
Co-branding at Laredo Taco Co. will expand the brands familiarly and reach according to familiarly Johnson, as customers can also order a Slurpee with their meal in a single stop.
