Del Taco has announced the signing of a multi-unit franchise deal for six units across Alabama with franchisee Sam Abusaleem in the Huntsville market.
“I am thrilled to become part of the Del Taco franchise team. My goal has been to bring a fresh, high quality, casual concept to the residents of Northern Alabama and Del Taco is just that,” said Abusaleem.
“I’ve been in the retail and restaurant industry for more than 30 years and am looking forward to growing my portfolio with such a well-respected brand that believes in the same dedication to its guests and employees as I do.”
Abusaleem comes with extensive experience in the restaurant, retail and real estate industry for over three decades, and demonstrated significant growth within each business. Heather and Laith, his children, have grown up watching their father operating his own business are now planning to work with him as business partners. They grew up watching working in one of their family-owned pizza restaurants in Madison, Alabama.
“Sam and his team have exceptional experience when it comes to operating multi-unit concepts, paired with a passion to see the Del Taco brand succeed in a market that has been untapped, until now,” said Jeff Little, senior vice president of development at Del Taco Restaurants.
“We know they will be an excellent steward of the Del Taco brand and are excited to partner with them to bring fresh Mexican food to Huntsville.”
