Taco Bell to return to Australia
Mexican fast food chain Taco Bell is set to open in Australia again.
America’s Taco Bell first tried to establish itself in Australia in the 1980s but ran into difficulties when a Sydney restaurant called ‘Taco Bell’s Casa’ successfully argued consumers would confuse the two businesses.
Taco Bell re-entered Australia again in 1997, opening a store in Sydney’s CBD and some joint stores with KFC, but by 2005 Taco Bell pulled out of Australia again.
Taco Bell is owned by Yum! Brands but Collins Foods has the rights to Taco Bell within Australia. Collins Foods is also responsible for a number of KFC stores and Sizzlers within Australia and overseas.
No official statement has been made announcing Taco Bell’s new plans for Australia, however, the chain has placed an advertisement looking for staff to work at a Brisbane located Taco Bell.
The Brisbane store will be located in the suburb of Annerley, near Brisbane city centre.
The first Taco Bell was opened in California in 1962 by Glen Bell who had experience making and selling hot dogs and tacos. In 1964 he sold his first franchise and the restaurant network soon grew rapidly across America.
Today there is approximately 7, 000 taco bell restaurants world-wide
