Taco John’s moving ahead with east-side stores

Oct. 25, 2018

It has taken longer than planned, but construction is moving forward for two east-side Taco John’s locations.

Framing is up for the replacement store on East 10th Street, and asphalt will be laid on the property this week. The new location is across the corner from the current site.

“Everybody is behind, and we have a small window to hit,” said Ted Miller, vice president of operations for the franchise group. “Our goal was to have it done by Dec. 30, but I would guess it’s going to be the middle of January when we truly open.”

The other project, the site of the former Pizza Hut at 26th Street and Sycamore Avenue, will come together later.

“Our spring will dictate it,” Miller said. “We want to get in and get the building knocked down this winter, and as soon as we get footings in the ground, we’ll be ready to go. If we could start in March, we could probably open late spring or early summer. I think it’s going to be a great location.”

Both restaurants will be part of retail centers that have additional space for lease.

“I know there’s been interest, nothing inked, but there have been people checking it out,” Miller said.
