In this Aug. 1, 2019 photo the corporate headquarters of Cheyenne-based Taco John's, which has nearly 400 locations in 23 states, is seen in Cheyenne, Wyo.

Taco John's has owned the trademark to "Taco Tuesday" since 1989 and calls the term part of its "DNA." Some say the term has become so common that Taco John's can't legitimately continue to claim it.
