Beer and margaritas coming to some Taco Bell locations

The company recently announced a major expansion during the next five years, opening more than 300 locations across the country in mostly urban locations.

Right now, 70 percent of Taco Bell's business comes from drivers. No word on when the new beverage choices will be available here.

And that certainly rings true as this isn't the first time Taco Bell has attempted to revolutionize its brand.


Taco Bell's chief operating officer credits millennials' moving into downtown areas helping to revitalize urban areas.

Grams added "currently, there are already roughly 6,000 Taco Bell restaurants nationwide, but expanding the urban footprint, in particular, makes sense". They won't have a drive-thru but they will serve alcohol. But who drives in the city anyway? The Taco Bell Cantina at the heart of the Las Vegas Strip not only serves boozy slushes but also offers wedding packages.

But these urban eateries would likely be situated in dense neighborhoods of cities like New York, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Nashville where there isn't the room or the desire for drive-thru lanes. They want to put 60 in Manhattan, up from the six that are now there.
