If there was ever a time to skip class, run while through the streets and hug your neighbor, now is the time.
Fast food chain Taco Bell has announced that within the year, it plans to test out delivery and catering services! Yes, you read that correctly. Taco.Bell.Plans.To.Deliver.
CEO Brian Niccol announced the good news in Nation’s Restaurant News in March, and for some reason, no one told us about it until now.
And even though millions of restaurants all over the world deliver, including Burger King, Niccol said right now the company has a lot of work to do on perfecting the service for themselves and their customers. “Even though it’s the No. 1 request from consumers, we have to make sure we can give them an experience that’s consistent with Taco Bell, and that’s what we’re working through,” he said. “We have to figure it out, and I can tell you right now we don’t have it figured out.”
Catering right now is being tested in Houston, and there are plans to expand to a few more markets this year. There will also be online ordering, which, to be quite honest, is long overdue.
All of these announcements are total game changers. For most people, the nearest Taco Bell location is, like, really far, and trying to find someone to drive you there is nearly impossible, especially when you’re on campus.
So, here’s to you Taco Bell and Brian Niccol, make us proud.
