Fast food chain Taco Bell to open in Leicester this November

By Adam Rear

It’s time to lick your lips as Leicester welcomes Taco Bell, the Mexican fast-food giant very soon.

The go-ahead was given this summer to open on Gallowtree Gate, where a former GAME store used to be situated.

The 57-seater site spanning two floors will be the UK’s 49th Taco Bell and will open on November 11, creating 35 new jobs.

The restaurant will allow diners to sit in or take-away, as well as the option for home delivery and click-and-collect.

Taco Bell UK marketing leader Lucy Dee said in a media release: “We’ve had our eye on a potential restaurant in Leicester for a while, and we know we’ve got plenty of fans in the area who we’re looking forward to welcoming through our doors.”
