Taco Bell Will Open 50 NYC Locations in Next Five Years

Taco Bell has got New York all figured out – opening 50 NYC Locations within the Next Five Years! That’s a lot of new shops. Great that it will provide a lot of people desperately needed jobs. New York can always use more jobs!

Five of them will be ready by early next year A big wave of CrunchWrap Supremes and chalupas is rolling into NYC: Taco Bell is planning to open at least 50 more locations in the five boroughs by 2022 — including five that will open by early next year. Those five will debut in Greenwich Village near NYU (647 Broadway), Times Square area, Prospect Park South (1034 Flatbush Avenue), Bed-Stuy (491 Nostrand Avenue), and in Corona, Queens — a rendering of which is pictured above. They’ll all serve alcohol, except for the one in Queens. It’s a huge change for the chain. As of now, New York City has a limited number of locations because the company used to focus on opening in the suburbs. A typical Taco Bell receives 55 to 70 percent of its revenue from drive-throughs, which is why the city hasn’t had an explosion of cheesy gordita crunch.

All of them will be in high traffic areas, in spaces that are at least 1,000-square-feet. Expect many of them to pop-up in Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx, and Staten Island, as that’s where there is “more space and opportunity,” Grams says. They’re still trying to figure out Manhattan, but they’ve targeted at least ten for the borough.
