Mexican quick-serve chain Taco John’s signed a development deal that will add at least 100 new locations and move the brand into three new states: North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia.

Taco John’s franchisee, Superior Taco, has partnered with American Development Partners (ADP) to develop restaurants in major markets across all three states. “We can’t wait to introduce these markets to Taco John’s. We have aggressive development plans for the next 24 to 36 months,” says Caleb McMillen, chief operating officer for ADP.

The privately owned chain currently operates nearly 400 restaurants in 23 states.
