Taco Bell Plans New Locations That Will Serve Alcohol

Taco Bell plans to open 300+ stores without drive-thrus

If you want to check out the concept, the Berkeley cantina at 2528 Durant Ave. features an open kitchen, a menu of shareable items (besides the traditional menu), extended hours - and several microbrews. Beer, wine, sangria and "Twisted Freezes" are part of the plan.

Grams added "currently, there are already roughly 6,000 Taco Bell restaurants nationwide, but expanding the urban footprint, in particular, makes sense".

"No drive-thrus will be removed from existing locations", a Taco Bell spokesman confirmed Tuesday. The one downside for the new taco stands is that they won't have drive-thru windows.

Taco Bell is reportedly going to open more than 300 new locations around the country but with a much different look and a new addition.

Another interesting point: According to Food & Wine, the chain's drive-thrus make up around 55 to 70 percent of its revenue.

Zeroing in on big cities like Detroit, Pittsburgh, Nashville, and NY (including a plan to open at least 50 locations in Manhattan, presently there are a mere six).

Taco Bell is known for its unorthodox recipes, like the chain's latest Naked Taco creation, which is essentially a breakfast taco made with a fried egg as the taco shell, or a spicy burrito with cayenne pepper-flavored popping candy nestled among the beans and rice.
