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.
If you’re looking to join a taco restaurant franchise, it’s hard to go past Fuzzy’s. Why is that? Because we’re a taco franchise committed to providing a fantastic experience to every customer that strolls through our doors. How do we achieve this Baja-awesome experience?
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

Leading the Fuzzy’s team takes a ton of passion for taking it easy, but that doesn’t keep Paul from putting in some serious work—especially when there’s chips & queso in the mix. Thanks to his dreams of becoming a chef when he was younger, he’s a natural when it comes to dishing out good vibes and stellar food. When he’s not busting a move to “September” by Earth, Wind and Fire, you can be sure he’s grooving on new ways to make every day badass for Fuzzy’s fans everywhere.
Behind every badass business is a one-time breakdancer that keeps everything running. No? Just us then? Scott loves our Fuzzy’s Fam like huevos love rancheros. In fact, the only other thing that hypes him up more than a Fuzzy’s breakfast is hearing “Mama Said Knock You Out,” which is probably why he does such a knockout job at dishing out good vibes on the daily. From backgammon to Baja Tacos, Scott’s a boss across the board.
When it comes to being awesome at IT, and being awesome in general, Leo is wired in all the right ways. But being a chill dude doesn’t stop his go-to order from being a California Heat Taco or three, and he firmly believes that there’s no such thing as a “least-favorite food” because ALL food is good. Oh, and in case you were wondering, he absolutely rocked MC Hammer pants back in the day and would gladly wear them again. Yes Leo! Work it!
We love Laura. That’s it. That’s the bio. But seriously, thanks to awesome people like her, badass places like Fuzzy’s can exist. She’s always down for a hang sesh with some Shredded Brisket Nachos and is never afraid to live it up by singing out loud. As our resident Jon Bon Jovi expert and Foo Fighters fanatic, Laura absolutely rocks. (Dave Grohl, if you’re reading this—obviously you will—she’s totally cool with being best friends.)
Once a professional baseball player, it just makes sense that Kevin would be a natural at knocking it out of the ballpark as our VP of Operations. Even though his walk-up song in the field would be “Thunderstruck” by AC/DC, he’s just as happy taking it easy to tunes by the one and only George Strait. No matter what he’s up to, he’s always up for adding a Ground Beef Taco with a drizzle of queso to the mix.
Fuzzy’s Taco Shop is a fast casual restaurant with nearly 150 franchise- and corporate-owned locations in 18 states, serving Mexican favorites with a splash of Baja. We’re excited to welcome you to Fuzzy’sTaco Shop!!
