A Florida-based taco joint is looking to find success in Coweta County. Capital Tacos, which got its start in the Tampa Bay community of Land O’ Lakes in 2013, plans to open in a former Moe’s Southwest Grill in Newnan. The new Capital Tacos is opening in Newnan Promenade (1111 Bullsboro Road), a small strip center at Newnan Crossing Boulevard and Bullsboro Road.
The chain started in 2023 with locations only in Florida. Over the past few months however, Capital Tacos has entered six new markets including a pair of Atlanta area outposts in Johns Creek and Peachtree Corners in May and October respectively. According to the Capital Tacos website, additional locations have opened or will soon open in Colorado, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Tennessee.
Much of the expansion beyond Florida is being led by independent franchisees, but the initial three locations in Georgia will reportedly be corporately owned and managed.
Capital Tacos prides itself on “Tacos Done Right” and offers a menu not only of assorted tacos but also “monster quesadillas,” “crazy fries,” “epic nachos,” burritos, bowls and even fajitas like the “Andre 3001: Fajita chicken & sizzlin’ bacon tossed in Texican BBQ sauce, with chihuahua cheese, corn salsa, and chipotle BBQ sauce.”
