Taco Bell Opening 300 Locations, Ditching Drive-Through, Adding Alcohol

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

The company has announced a major push into urban markets that would add 300 to 350 of its beer- and wine-serving Taco Bell Cantina concept restaurants by the year 2022, Food and Wine reported.

Shares of Yum! Brands were sinking in afternoon trading on Tuesday.

"One of the cool things happening in America right now is the revitalization of urban areas, and we're seeing millennials moving into downtown areas", said Mike Grams, Taco Bell's COO.

There are already a smattering of Taco Bell locations in urban areas that offer alcohol, according to Delish, and that number is about to drastically increase.

But forget about ordering from your auto - the new locations will not have drive-thrus. It was the first time the chain served alcohol in the U.S.Taco Bell now plans to expand into big cities with its cantinas.

Taco Bell is preparing to open hundreds of "cantina style" restaurants across the country with some radical changes, according to a new report. Hopefully they've got some interesting concoctions that also include Mountain Dew Baja Blast, which is undoubtedly Taco Bell's best drink.

Taco Bell will reportedly open between 300 and 350 locations in big cities like Detroit, Pittsburgh, Nashville and NY.

The Tex-Mex brand is always looking to flawless a new, even innovative or peculiar item.
