Velvet Taco’s Great Expansion

Velvet Taco’s Great Expansion

Dallas-based and born Velvet Taco will be uprooting its headquarters to Plano for its expansion according to a Dallas Morning News article from June 2. They say,


A growing fast casual restaurant chain has planted its headquarters on a busy corner in Far North Dallas.


Velvet Taco Inc. is moving its offices from Plano to the northeast corner of the Dallas North Tollway and Belt Line Road.


Velvet Taco has had a restaurant on the ground floor since 2020. The new restaurant office will be on the second floor.


“Velvet Taco is experiencing rapid growth, and with our new Restaurant Support Office, we’ll be able to support our operators even better,” CEO Clay Dover said in a statement. “The Commons’ location is ideal for our new offices as its centrally located to all our DFW-based restaurants, close to airports and allows us to retain the top talent that Dallas is known for.”


The moving of their headquarters for their internal expansion comes with it an external expansion to nearby cities including Fort Worth according to a Star Telegram article from June 14. They say, 


“A new Velvet in north Fort Worth will join the West Seventh Street location, still one of the company’s top two restaurants, according to a spokesperson for the Addison-based chain. 


Velvet Taco will open at 2828 North Tarrant Parkway west of Interstate 35W, according to a city permit application.


The restaurant will have the “same menu, same vibe, same eclectic irreverence” as the 8-year-old Fort Worth location at 2700 West Seventh St., spokesperson Cassie Cooper said.


But the new location will have a drive-thru window, so busy north Fort Worth families can pick up the restaurant’s cross-cultural tacos and “backdoor” rotisserie chicken even with kids or dogs in the car.”


While the new location is yet to be disclosed, the headquarters’ opening however, is already set to open next Fall.
