Redberry has signed a new multi-year development agreement with Taco Bell Canada following its acquisition of 14 locations across Ontario. Redberry intends to develop 50 Taco Bell restaurants in Canada over the next few years.
Redberry Restaurants, a quick-service restaurant franchisor in Canada with 135 restaurants across four provinces, will acquire Taco Bell locations in Brantford, Guelph, Hamilton, Hannon, Kitchener, London, Mississauga, St. Thomas, and Toronto.
“We are thrilled to be joining the Taco Bell family and expanding our portfolio of Redberry Restaurants across Canada,” said Ken Otto, CEO, Redberry Restaurants. “The entrepreneurial, ambitious spirit of the Redberry team aligns very well with the fun and youthful Taco Bell brand loved by all generations, and together, we look forward to exemplifying the essence of ‘live mas.’”
The new partnership comes on the heels of a year of growth for Taco Bell Canada, with the recent launch of a new online ordering platform and the expansion of delivery options through DoorDash and Uber Eats.
“We are excited to welcome Redberry Restaurants into the growing Taco Bell family of franchisees, partners, and team members to help bring an unmatched customer experience to our fans,” said Matthew Shaw, general manager, Taco Bell Canada. “Redberry’s franchise and business expertise will be a great addition as we continue to grow the Taco Bell brand in Canada and get our favourite menu items into the hands of more Canadians.”
