Laughing Turtles Tacos and Tortas brings high end, authentic Mexican cuisine to the mid-South. Based on a concept and system proven for over a decade in Memphis, we serve food that has been called “astonishingly delicious” by Southern Foodways Alliance and named a Memphis Hot Spot by Garden & Gun magazine. Both food critics and consumers have consistently ranked us as one of the best Mexican restaurants in the state of Tennessee.

Why Choose Us?

Unlike systems that depend on massive volume to make up for heavy discounting, Laughing Turtles is based on providing delicious food from fresh, high quality ingredients. We call our approach “Chef Casual”—chef-quality food served in a relaxed, welcoming environment.

For our franchisees, this means:

  • Consumers willing to spend more per item than at typical “fast casual” chains.
  • Higher margins and lower required throughput leads to happier employees, lower turnover, and reduced hiring costs.
  • High customer loyalty
  • Locate in a typical, in-line retail space saving on square footage and fixed costs. We bring “big-city” dining to the neighborhood.

Ideal Candidate

We are looking for franchisees who have:

  • A passion for customer service and immense pride in their work
  • An ability to manage stores in-person or provide an equity incentive to their on-site manager
  • A net worth of $250,000 and the ability to invest between $364,100 and $467,800.

Training And Support

Laughing Turtles franchisees receive unlimited access to our library of detailed video training modules as well as classroom and kitchen training at our headquarters. We follow that up with in-person on-site support before and after your grand opening.
