JAMESTOWN — Since Taco John's moved from 10th Street Southeast to 605 25th St. SW, the restaurant has already seen a jump in sales at the new site, said Brett Itterman, CEO of Pentex Restaurant Group.

The new location is closer to the interstate and some of the larger retail hubs like Walmart and Menards. The new site allowed the restaurant group to update the location to Taco John’s current branding, increase dining room capacity, double its staff and add a second drive-thru to meet anticipated demand, Itterman said.

“This move allows us to ensure that we have the best and newest equipment and provide great food to our customers,” he said.

Taco John's worked out of the same building for almost 40 years. The new restaurant is roughly 2,400 square feet. Construction broke ground at the site last fall and the new location opened in late July. The former location also closed a week prior and is currently vacant, though still owned by the same company, according to the city assessor’s office.

“We needed to replace our old facility,” Itterman said, “so now was a good time to look and make sure we were in the right location as well.”
