Celebrating DRG’s New Store Opening in Missouri!


You don’t get to be one of the largest Taco Bell franchisees by sleeping on new store openings! At DRG, we love a good cause for celebration. This time, it was for a Taco Bell restaurant opening in Independence, MO. The first 100 guests to make a purchase received a Taco Bellbranded cup with a free taco coupon. And no new store opening would be complete without a ribboncutting ceremony!

“Our new restaurant in Independence is a great location for locals in the area or travelers passing through, making it possible to accommodate busy guests on the go,” said our President & CEO, SG Ellison. 

Accommodating guests on the go is our specialty. After all, we’ve been in the quick service restaurant (QSR) industry for over a decade! DRG’s initial acquisition of Taco Bell restaurants happened in 2012 and at the start of 2023, we celebrated a milestone ten times that of the original transaction with 300 restaurants and counting. In fact, were already up to 350-plus stores as of this article! As such, DRG is now one of the largest QSR franchisees in the country. Welcome to the family, Independence!
