Rego Restaurant Group, which owns Quiznos and Taco Del Mar, has opened its first dual-branded location.
In partnership with Sunshine Gasoline Distributors Inc., the Quiznos and Taco Del Mar restaurant opened in February at 314 Del Prado Blvd. N., in Cape Coral, Florida, and marks the first of 13 restaurants opening in Florida and showcasing a smaller prototype introduced last year. Each features flat-top grills and deep fryers, so guests may also order fries alongside toasted subs.
“The partnership with REGO and their two iconic brands is a perfect addition to our services as we consistently seek out ways to offer further convenience to our customers,” Eddy Alvarez, senior operations manager at Sunshine Gasoline Distributors, said in a company press release. “The deal is also an opportunity to grow our business and expand our suite of offerings while meeting the cravings of local guests.”
“We are thrilled to expand our footprint in the Sunshine state in this unique, convenience store-friendly format, with a tremendous partner in Sunshine Gasoline,” Tim Casey, CEO of Rego Restaurant Group, said in the release. “The combination of the rebranded concepts, featuring inventive subs and made-to order-Baja inspired eats, coupled with the operational expertise of Sunshine Gasoline, provides a winning foundation to bring Quiznos back to local fans who have missed the brand, and to introduce Taco Del Mar to the region.”
Based in Denver, Rego manages nearly 800 restaurants in 32 countries.
