Musa Kivrak opened the branch in the former Bull Inn pub, a listed building, in January 2018. He has another in Canterbury.

But now the property, which is described as being a development opportunity with two bars, is listed on Rightmove.

The estate agent’s description of the building says: “Tacos Locos is a large two-storey restaurant and bar, in the heart of Sittingbourne High Street, surrounded by bars, restaurants and retail businesses.

“The design of the building lends itself very well to operating two separate businesses within it, there are two separate entrances.”

Rightmove has also suggested buyers could also have the opportunity to convert the large property into a luxury flat with a separate business on the ground floor.

However, this is subject to a successful planning application.

The Tex-Mex restaurant is based at the former Bull Inn, which was first documented as a watering hole in 1770. It closed in 2012.

The Mexican was not the only project Mr Kivrak had planned for the town.

He opened Amalfi in the old Woolwich bank along Sittingbourne High Steet in 2019.

However, it closed in 2022 after trade struggled to recover following the pandemic.

The building has since become a Turkish restaurant under new owners.

Tacos Locos has been contacted for comment about whether or not it plans to shut.

Although the business did not respond to the News’ emails and calls it is understood the eatery is now only opening during the evening on Monday to Saturday and is no longer offering a dine-in option for lunch.
