  • Taco Bell plans to open 300+ stores without drive-thrus

The website said big cities including NY are part of Taco Bell's plan.

"One of the cool things happening in America right now is the revitalization of urban areas, and we're seeing millennials moving into downtown areas", Mike Grams, Taco Bell's chief operating officer, told Eater. The move is reportedly part of Taco Bell's plan to make a larger presence in urban areas. Along with the regular fast food menu guest can also order beer, wine, sangria and twisted Freezes which can be mixed with rum, tequila or vodka.

Taco Bell, the go-to, open-all-night solution for a taste for tacos that creeps up on you at midnight is known for its drive-thru service.

The Tex-Mex chain says that means less drive-thrus and more locations that sell alcoholic beverages.

Taco Bell is about to get a little boozier and lot more accessible.

The company has announced a major push into urban markets that would add 300 to 350 of its beer- and wine-serving Taco Bell Cantina concept restaurants by the year 2022, Food and Wine reported.

The first Taco Bell to serve alcohol opened in Chicago in 2015. The hipper vibe and smaller scale of these cantinas highlight another point, that the chain "isn't afraid to try new things".
