Taco Bell's expansion plan includes 350 new restaurants that would serve alcohol

Fast Food Workers Nationwide To Demand Higher Wages

Food & Wine reported Taco Bell plans to "zero in on" big cities like Detroit, Boston and NY.

So it might make little sense for new Taco Bell restaurants, 300 to 350 locations in fact, to open without drive-thru options.

Most of the locations will be situated in big cities like Detroit, Pittsburgh, Nashville and NY.

The stores will aim to bring in foot traffic with open kitchens and a digital menu. But perhaps most importantly, they'll serve alcohol. Drive-thru locations in the traditional layout will remain for years to come, even as this experimental style is tested in big cities.




Your late night craving for a Taco Bell crunchwrap may soon be without the convenience of a drive-thru window.

But forget about ordering from your auto - the new locations will not have drive-thrus.

"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", Mike Grams, Taco Bell's chief operating officer, told Food & Wine. While the loss of drive-thrus could be devastating to the perennial fast-food diner, Taco Bell promises to serve alcohol at these new locations.
