‘Papas and Beer’: A New Era in Taco Bell’s Taco Bell Dough
It’s the beginning of the end for the long-running Taco Bell franchise.
On Tuesday, the fast-food chain said it is closing its flagship Taco Bell outlet in Las Vegas, Nevada, and plans to invest $3.5 billion to close a second Taco Bell location in Phoenix.
The chain has more than 2,500 locations in the United States, including more than 200 locations in California, Arizona and Nevada.
Taco Bell will also close restaurants in California and Texas, the company said.
“We’re moving on,” Taco Bell CEO and co-founder Kevin Johnson said in a statement.
“We’re closing the doors of the second Taco Hill, and we’re investing heavily in our Phoenix and California locations.
We have the opportunity to open up even more locations across the country.””
These new and exciting opportunities are just the beginning.
We have the opportunity to open up even more locations across the country.”
Taco Bell has a long history in America, as it began in the Philippines in 1957 and has since expanded across the United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, India, Malaysia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Thailand.
It has been a popular fast-casual food chain in the U.S. since 1995.
