Redberry Announces New Franchise Partnership With Taco Bell Canada

Redberry today announces a new multi-year development agreement with Taco Bell Canada following Redberry’s agreement to acquire 14 Taco Bell locations across Ontario. Redberry intends to develop 50 Taco Bell restaurants in Canada over the next few years supporting Taco Bell’s plans to expand its footprint across the country.

Redberry Restaurants, one of the largest and fastest growing quick-service restaurant franchisees in Canada with 135 restaurants across four provinces, will acquire Taco Bell restaurants in Brantford, Guelph, Hamilton, Hannon, Kitchener, London, Mississauga, Saint Thomas and Toronto.

“We are thrilled to be joining the Taco Bell family and expanding our portfolio of Redberry Restaurants across Canada,” said Ken Otto, CEO, Redberry Restaurants. “The entrepreneurial, ambitious spirit of the Redberry team aligns very well with the fun and youthful Taco Bell brand loved by all generations, and together, we look forward to exemplifying the essence of ‘Live Mas’.”

The new partnership comes on the heels of a year of growth for Taco Bell Canada, following the recent launch of a new online ordering platform on and the expansion of delivery options through DoorDash and Uber Eats for Taco Bell customers across Canada.

“We are excited to welcome Redberry Restaurants into the growing Taco Bell family of franchisees, partners and team members to help bring an unmatched customer experience to our fans,” said Matthew Shaw, General Manager, Taco Bell Canada. “Redberry’s franchise and business expertise will be a great addition as we continue to grow the Taco Bell brand in Canada and get our favourite menu items into the hands of more Canadians!”

Customers can order all their Taco Bell favourites, including Tacos, Crunchwraps and Fries Supreme, from each of the 14 newly managed locations, or any other Taco Bell Canada restaurants for delivery and pick-up through or via Uber Eats and DoorDash.
