MEXICAN restaurant chain Taco Bell is set to open a new site in Sussex next week.

The launch on Tuesday, December 21, will mark the brand’s 83rd restaurant in the UK.

The new restaurant, located in Grande Parade, High Street, Crawley, is offering a free taco to the first 100 customers.

Customers will be able to order in advance via the Taco Bell app, website or delivery platforms, as well as using the digital kiosks in store.

Customers will also be able to claim a free taco when they download the Taco Bell UK app.

Taco Bell UK head of marketing Lucy Dee said: “We’re delighted to be able to bring Taco Bell to Crawley.

“West Sussex has been crying out for more Taco Bells and we’re very pleased to be able to deliver; creating local jobs despite challenging circumstances.

“We look forward to feeding residents from Tuesday, December 21, onwards whether it be via home delivery, click and collects, takeaway or dine in”.

The 1,400 sq. ft. site is located at 7 Grande Parade in Crawley’s High Street.

The restaurant will be open from 11am until 11pm, seven days a week.

Taco Bell opened their first UK site in 2010.
