Rebecca and Todd Wilber started CTI, which is short for Cincinnati Taco Investments, in 1998, purchasing nine underperforming Taco Bell restaurants.
It now owns 11 locations of the popular chain, with most of them in Butler, Warren and Hamilton counties.
CTI Restaurants & OWC purchased the existing West Chester Twp. UNO location in 2006 and an Anderson Twp. location in 2008. It closed that location in 2015.
