Taco Taco Café, nationally lauded by Bon Appetit magazine and Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives on the Food Network, is expanding. But not in San Antonio, or even Texas. The second Taco Taco location will be in … North Carolina. Franchise development company Fransmart plans to open the NC restaurant in early 2013 and will open another location every 18 months thereafter. The company is behind Five Guys Burgers & Fries, Qdoba, and zpizza. The Fransmart website already lists Taco Taco as a brand, with five locations in development.

The first is at 5:30 p.m. Friday, September 7, at the HemisView Farmers' Market where Cappy's executive chef Gave Ibarra will give a cooking demonstration. Check sagoesorange.com for more events.
