In 2002 three friends and restaurateurs’, Paul Gibbs, Ray Sieradzki and Tom Nahas decided that Atlanta was missing a fun taco and margarita joint so they decided to open “Twisted Taco”. They took a 1914 row house in midtown Atlanta and transformed it into a successful taqueria and margarita bar. Twisted Taco took off and has not stopped! It has become well known for its fresh, unique tacos and awesome signature margaritas. Popular with locals, tourists and visiting celebrities, it was obvious that the Twisted Taco brand would grow and franchising was the way. Now is a great time to learn more about what the Twisted Taco franchise opportunity can mean for you!
