Del Taco Restaurants, Inc. (NASDAQ: TACO), the nation’s second leading Mexican quick service restaurant* (MQSR), today announced that it is celebrating the successful nationwide launch of its Queso Blanco by offering guests a free order of the new menu item and a side of chips with any purchase. Made with real cheese, real milk, jalapeños and heavy cream, guests can download a coupon for Del Taco’s smooth and creamy Queso Blanco by visiting deltaco.com/queso and redeeming it at restaurants nationwide** through September 28.
“Since launching our Queso products last month, our social media response has been overwhelmingly positive,” said Barry Westrum, Del Taco’s Chief Marketing Officer. “We’re so confident that our Queso will continue to win over the hearts of cheese lovers that we decided to give all of our guests across the country a chance to sample it for free. Not only does it taste delicious, but our guests love that it is made with no artificial colors, flavors and preservatives, and unlike other chains, can be ordered from the convenience of a drive-thru.”
