Taco John’s returns to former Kalispell location

Print Article

Taco Johnís is moving back into its old location on Main Street in Kalispell.

The Mexican-inspired national fast food chain restaurant will be returning to 150 North Main St., across from Mooseís Saloon.

Taco Johnís occupied the space just two tenants ago. The buildingís most recent occupant, another Mexican-inspired fast food restaurant named El Sombrero, replaced the last Taco Johnís when it closed.

The Kalispell Building Department issued a permit in mid-June to the owner, North Dakota-based PRGA Properties, for a $255,000 restaurant remodel. The city collected $2,754 in fees from the building permit issuance.

The contractor performing the remodel is Minnesota-based Gray Companies Inc., and the architectural firm is Ohio-based Fisher Group Architects.

A man named John started the Taco Johnís corporation as a single taco stand in Cheyenne, Wyoming in 1968, according to the companyís website. Two local businessmen later bought the franchise rights from John, and the company began to grow. Now, the company operates over 400 restaurants in 23 states.

The Kalispell Taco Johnís location will be one of 22 in Montana. Other Taco Johnís nearby include one in Browning and two in Missoula.

The corporate website has a link for applicants to submit resumes for jobs at the Kalispell location, which it says will be ďopening soon.Ē Visit online at https://careers.tacojohns.com/location/3041/.
