Taco John's Opening First Michigan Locations in Grand Rapids

Meritage Hospitality Group has signed a 200-store development agreement with Taco John’s. The restaurants are planned throughout the Midwest. This past summer we learned the first Taco John's location in the state would open on 28th St. at the site of the former Main St. Pub.

Meritage owns more than 350 restaurants in 16 states, including the Morning Belle Brunch restaurants and Stan Diego Taco locations in West Michigan.

Taco John's opened its first location in Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1968. It has since expanded to almost 400 locations in 23 states. At one time there was a single Taco John's Michigan location - in Stevensville, in Berrien Count - However, that location has since closed and reopened as a new restaurant.
