There was also a kiosk for customers to play the music of their choice in the restaurant. This fantastic new location offers beer, frozen margaritas, cider, custom tacos and Taco Bell favourites. This was an excellent opportunity for fans of Taco Bell to celebrate the arrival of the fast food chain to the country of New Zealand.

Future Plans

The rollout was organised by Taco Bell with their business partner in New Zealand, Restaurant Brands Group. In an interview the CEO of Restaurant Brands Group, Russel Creedy said, “The broader rollout plan will see a minimum of 25 restaurants trading in New Zealand over the next five years, with a view to launch the next restaurant in Q1 of next year,”. This is great news for people in New Zealand looking to satisfy their cravings. 60 new restaurants are expected to open within the next four years. The rollout of Taco Bell in New Zealand was long awaited, considering the first Taco Bell restaurant opened in 1962.
