District Taco plans two new franchise locations in Springfield and McLean

New District Tacos are coming to Springfield and McLean, the first franchise locations for the regionally-based restaurant.

The Mexican fast-casual eatery, which started as an Arlington taco cart in 2009, will open its first franchise at Old Keene Mill Shopping Center.

The space appears to previously have been a bank. It’s next door to the Pupatella Neopolitan Pizza — another Arlington-based eatery expanding its Northern Virginia footprint — that opened earlier this month.

District Taco at 8432 Old Keene Mill Road is looking to open before the end of the year, a company spokesperson told FFXnow.

Another District Taco franchise location is coming to McLean, but the exact address and time frame for opening are not being shared just yet. The company spokesperson said the paperwork is still being signed, but more details are expected to be finalized within a few weeks.

Once those two locations open, there will be a total of five District Tacos in Fairfax County, which currently has locations in Baileys Crossroads, Tysons, and near the Dunn Loring Metro station.

District Taco began as a food cart, selling breakfast tacos on the streets of Rosslyn in Arlington.

Over the last almost decade and a half, the company has opened more than a dozen brick-and-mortar restaurants in Virginia, D.C., Maryland and Pennslyvania.

The upcoming Springfield and McLean locations are the first steps in the company’s plans to expand further through franchising. They are also looking to add sites further north, in the midwest, and even internationally.

“The sky’s the limit. We want to go everywhere,” co-founder Osiris Hoil told ARLnow earlier this month. “But we gotta take it one taco at a time.”
