Taco Bell on S. Queen St. gets multi-million redevelopment upgrade
Craving a cheesy gordita crunch from Taco Bell at 2054 S. Queen St.?
You'll have to wait for the corporation to finish up its multi-million dollar investment in the poplar York Township Tex-Mex American fast-food chain restaurant.
"It'll be a new building, with all new appliances," said Conshohocken-based Summerwood Corp. Development Manager Joe DePascale.
The grand re-opening is slated for January 2019, DePascale said.
"The major difference is it's going to be a Taco Bell, it's not going to be a Taco Bell and Pizza Hut combo," he explained. "It's going to have a more modern, sleek look and include a patio. It will have 66 seats."
Summerwood Corp. is among the largest franchise-owned restaurant operating companies in the Northeast, according to its website.
"From our headquarters in Conshohocken, Pennsylvania, we operate Taco Bell, KFC, Pizza Hut, Burger King, Zio Gio and Long John Silver's restaurants," the corporation says. "We attribute our success over the last 30 years to our investment in the best tools for our team, our supportive culture and our mission of building trust and loyalty with our customers and each other."
DePascale confirmed it's "fairly routine" that Taco Bell requires an updated remodel of its stores after a certain period of time.
"It'll be a couple million dollars invested in redevelopment at that site," he said.
