Taco Inc. has broken ground for its major expansion of its manufacturing and corporate facility in Cranston, R.I. Late last year the company purchased a 1-acre adjacent lot to build a 64,900-sq.-ft. addition to serve as a warehouse for shipping and distribution. This is the first physical expansion of the Cranston facility since Taco first acquired it in 1954.
