Taco John’s has announced plans to build up to 15 franchises in Indianapolis. The new locations will be the first in the Indianapolis area. The Mexican quick-service chain says realtor Michael House has signed a five-store agreement with an option for an additional 10 units.

Taco John’s has more than 380 restaurants in 27 states.
