T-minus 10 for tacos

0506 taco bell

The wait will soon be over for those wanting to make a run for the border to the new Taco Bell.
Courtney Wright with Tacala LLC’s marketing department, said Tuesday doors to Brewton’s newest eating establishment will open May 17.
“We are, as many can see, officially under construction,” Wright said.
Previously, Wright said weather might impact the opening date; however, on Tuesday crews were busy working on landscaping the property. From the road, the trademark pink and purple sign is up and the building appears to be completed.
This isn’t the first time Taco Bell has been in Brewton, Wright said. In 2009, the Brewton location closed; however, corporate officials are excited to be back among the economic landscape.
“Obviously, we’re excited to be back in the community, and once things are finalized, we plan to have a grand opening,” she said.
No official hours were released, but Wright maintained the restaurant will be serving breakfast.
“Those stores generally open at 7 a.m., but we have a variety of closing times – some restaurants are open 24 hours; others close at midnight, while some close at 2 a.m.,” she said. “That being said, that determination is made based on market size and other factors.”
Tacala LLC – the largest Taco Bell franchisee in the county and the franchisee behind the Atmore store – began advertising for management candidates in March.
