DEFUNIAK SPRINGS, Fla., May 02, 2024 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Del Taco, the nation’s second-largest Mexican quick service restaurant*, announced today the opening of its new Fresh Flex location at 2760 S. Hwy 331. It is the second restaurant for franchise organization, Consolidated Taco Holdings, and uses the all-new Fresh Flex layout, which features a bold, modernized design and innovative layout changes to optimize the guest experience.

The DeFuniak Springs restaurant will welcome guests with a contemporary and colorful interior design that visually brings to life Del Taco's commitment to freshness and quality. Customers can take advantage of a drive-thru lane, and pick-up lockers will be available for orders placed via the Del Taco mobile app or third party food providers, allowing guests to order ahead and delivery drivers to skip the line.

The new location will serve Del Taco’s classic menu, including its wide variety of tacos, Epic Burritos®, quesadillas, beverages, and Del Taco’s famous Crinkle-Cut fries.
