Our History


Dan Foley opened the first Taco Tico in 1962, in his native Wichita, Kansas, and began franchising new locations in 1967. The company was a regional hit by 1980. In 1988, Foley sold the company and chain to a former executive from KFC. The meat recipe, which gave Taco Tico tacos their unique flavor, was changed at that time. The meat, at that time, was sent to the stores in frozen tubes from the main distribution center. The new flavoring was unpopular and Taco Tico has since switched back to the original.
