Qdoba Company is a fast-casual restaurant chain located in the United States. They specialize in Mexican cuisine, served in a beautiful ambiance at relatively affordable prices. They are best known for their tacos, tortillas, and quesadillas. When Qdoba was started, the founders were aware that most Mexican foods were associated with excessive amounts of calories.

History of Qdoba

Qdoba was started in 1995, as Zuma Fresh Mexican Grill. It was founded by two partners, Robert Hauser, and Anthony Miller. The restaurant operated using that name for the next two years before they had to rebrand. They then changed the name to Z-Teca, after being sued by a Mexican food restaurant named Zuzu, for apparently using a similar name that would confuse customers. In 1997, the brand began franchising, enabling them to expand into several new locations.

Even so, their growth was still limited by a lack of funds. In 1998, several companies including Western Capital put money into the company and helped them open several new outlets. The company became Qdoba in 1999, after being sued again for carrying a name that sounded similar to other restaurants. They were also able to tap into a wider market in 2009 after they introduced their kid’s menu.

Business directions

The past decade has seen Qdoba grow in leaps, opening new branches in multiple cities across the US. Currently, the company stands at more than 70 branches in over 47 states, and it is projected that this number will increase rapidly in the coming years. Their ability to keep franchising and be able to fund all the new restaurants is largely thanks to funds from investors like Western Capital. In 2003, the brand was bought by Jack-in-the-box. The multiple brand owners oversaw Qdoba’s growth and expansion until 2017. Thereafter, a group of companies that included Apollo Global Management bought Qdoba and have been running it to date.

Key facts about the company

Besides the copyright lawsuits that saw Qdoba rebrand twice, the restaurant was also sued by Panera Bread sandwiches after trying to open up a Qdoba restaurant at White City. Panera Bread had an agreement with White City that no other sandwich restaurant would open in the same location. They claimed that the tacos and tortillas sold by Qdoba were sandwiches so the new branch would violate their contract. The courts ruled against Panera Bread, stating that Qdoba foods were not sandwiches in any way.

Despite the various setbacks, Qdoba still remains one of the largest Mexican cuisine fast casual restaurants in the United States. They have also managed to perform exceedingly well against their competitors, including restaurants such as the Chipotle Mexican Grill. They have been able to do this by franchising continuously, as well as buying other chain restaurants and rebranding them to Qdoba. They also strive to keep their menu as healthy as it was when the restaurant was starting, to avoid losing clients to healthier brands.
