merican fast food giants Taco Bell have announced that they are set to launch their first Scottish outlet in Glasgow.

Taco Bell has been given the go ahead to open its first restaurant in Glasgow.

The American fast food chain – which serves Mexican cuisine – could soon be joining other big North American brands like Krispy Kreme and Tim Hortons in opening their first eatery in Scotland.

Having first opened in England in 2010, this will be the first time the American brand have come north of the border and follows hot on the heels of some other high profile launches over the past few years. The restaurant chain will take over the former Bradfords Bakery unit on Glasgow’s Sauchiehall Street.

The restaurant is expected to open before Christmas and the menu will feature the famous eats popular in Taco Bell restaurants all over the world including the Crunchwrap Supreme, quesadilla, tacos and burritos – all served open so diners can eat with their eyes first.

The Mexican fast food brand have said in previous interviews that they are “working hard to bring Taco Bell to every corner of the UK”. The news first leaked when a job advert was posted on classified ad site Gumtree for a restaurant manager to work at “a new Taco Bell in Glasgow”. Taco Bell are famous in the US for their cheap tacos and burritos, and are the biggest profit maker in the States for Yum Brands, the US restaurant group behind KFC and Pizza Hut.
