Taco Bell is Coming to the Windy City

Wellington is due for its first Taco Bell restaurant as the chain rolls out across New Zealand.

The store is currently planned for the Cuba St pedestrian mall, Restaurant Brands confirmed, though no opening date has been set yet.

Taco Bell is a Mexican-inspired fast-food restaurant chain, launched in the early 1960s in California, and now has over 7000 units worldwide.

Long queues were seen in June when the chain opened its first South Island store in Christchurch - it's fifth in New Zealand.

The first Taco Bell in New Zealand opened at The Brickworks in Auckland in 2019.

At the time, the company had planned to expand across New Zealand, with several more stores due this year.
