About Us Why Now? Why Not?


Good vibes, stellar food, and badass people. That’s the Fuzzy’s brand in a nutshell, and those chill vibes will be yours to share if you’re in the market to own your own Fuzzy’s Taco Shop.

We’ve been dishing out the good vibes via our laid-back restaurant spaces and flavor-packed menu since 2003. Fuzzy’s has gone from strength to strength as a taco franchise, opening in locations across the country but staying true to our core vibes: food first, pride in our people and keeping it real. We could never have imagined the way Fuzzy’s has taken off, expanding to nearly 150 locations across the US. And while we may love nothing more than taking it easy, taco in one hand, margarita in the other – it doesn’t mean we’re slowing down. 

There is no better time to join Fuzzy’s and open your very own Fuzzy’s Taco Shop franchise. Give us a call today, and get ready to dish out great food. When you’re working with Fuzzy’s, every day is badass.

Food Comes First

Creating mouth-watering flavors will always be a number one priority. We’re serving up the best and freshest ingredients, accompanied by a huge selection of thirst-quenching beverages.

Keep It Real

We keep it real at Fuzzy’s Taco Shop - we’ve got a sense of humor, and we’re not afraid to use it. We’re incredibly proud of the laid-back, chill atmosphere at our restaurant, and we’ll never forget our roots: an affordable taco shop focused on flavors and providing space to gather with family and friends to kick back and catch up.

Pride In Our People

What sets us apart from other taco franchises? Duh, it’s us! The people you see at any Fuzzy’s Taco Shop are Fam. We know we’ve got some of the hardest working team members in the biz, and that makes all the difference.

Dish Out And Give Back

Fuzzy’s might be a chain, but we know it’s the community around us that keeps us busy slinging tacos and serving up chill beverages. That’s why we’re committed to giving back to the local communities we’re a part of. Good vibes are at their best when they’re for a good cause, after all.

Local Is How We Roll

It’s as much about building community as it is about slinging seriously good tacos at Fuzzy’s. Every shop shows the personality of the locals that hang there - but don’t worry, the food is always out of this world.


Tap into what the people want – seriously good tacos

While tacos are a way of life to many of us at Fuzzy’s, there are plenty of other reasons to open your own Fuzzy’s franchise.

Fuzzy’s is one of America’s fastest-growing taco franchises, with nearly 150 locations open to date. You’ll find Fuzzy’s in 18 states across the country, so no matter where you are located, there will be demand for an affordable and flavorful taco franchise.

Fuzzy’s is headed up by a team passionate about dishing out good vibes and stellar food. While you can count on the same commitment to chill vibes and quality flavors, each of our taco shop franchises is shaped by the locals who hang out there. We’re truly the taco shop around the corner, a base in the community for people to gather to celebrate or just kick back and hang out.

There are also two options for you if you’re interested in running a Fuzzy’s franchise. As well as our regular taco shop franchise option, you can open a Fuzzy’s Taco Shop Taqueria. This franchise format is the way to go if you’re operating in an urban location from a smaller-sized space – it is made for a 2,000 sq ft space, as opposed to the 3,500 sq ft a traditional Fuzzy’s occupies. The Taqueria franchise option comes with a focused menu and streamlined seating layout – that makes owning a Fuzzy’s franchise more accessible than ever. It’s perfect for more CBD areas with high walk-up traffic.

Fuzzy’s Taco Shop may have gotten its start in the college towns of Texas, but our expansion across the country has shown there is plenty of appetite for a restaurant that dishes out the goodness on the daily. With a unique voice and a product at a real chill price, there’s never been a better time to own one of the best taco franchises around.


But don’t just take our word for it, check out what our franchisees have to say.
