Taco Tico A chain of Tex-Mex cuisine restaurants that would be classified as a fast-food restaurant. This establishment serves tacos, tostadas, nachos, enchiladas, burritos, refried beans, and sopapillas available for dine in, take-out, or drive-thru. Dan Foley open the first Taco Tico in 1962, in his native Wichita, Kansas. He began franchising new locations in 1967. The company kept expanding and also added more items to the menu, which originally just offered tacos and nachos, and was a regional hit by the 1980. In 1988, Foley sold the company and chain to a former executive from KFC. Expansion continued and locations are throughout the Midwest and Southeastern states. Taco Tico developed four distinctive taco sauces (mild, medium, hot, and extra-hot) in 1971 and continues to use them today. Buildings are adobe with green and orange awnings, signs, and trim.
