The US fast-food giant is certainly ready to shake up the Mexican food scene in Australia and New Zealand as it plans to open 60 new locations across NSW, the ACT, and New Zealand by 2024 under the franchise operator Restaurant Brands. This is on top of Collins Foods‘ plans to open 50 stores across Queensland, Western Australia and Victoria by 2021.

Compared to other existing Mexican chains in Australia, Taco Bell offers more affordable quality Mexican food as their menu includes a $6.95 burrito which is lower than that of its rival Mexican restaurants.

Third time is definitely the charm for Taco Bell since their third attempt to invade the Australian market proves to be a success.

Plans for Taco Bell North Lakes include a drive-through, parking for 18 vehicles, a 35-sqm outdoor dining area, and 250 sqm of internal dining.

Tenders for the new outlet were closed on 4 July 2018, and according to an online notice board which called for tenders for the fast food chain, the cost for the construction of the store may reach up to $3 million.

Taco Bell in Annerley has been a huge hit to locals as the tex-mex fast-food outlet offers free WiFi, charging ports at each table, and unlimited drink refills.

For North Lakes residents eager to find out when the store will open, there is no timeline yet for the project.
