Taco Bell, the world’s leading Mexican-inspired restaurant brand, announced the completion of an important milestone in its India journey with the launch of its 50th restaurant. This celebration-worthy milestone comes soon after Taco Bell’s announcement earlier this year, where the brand announced its collaboration with Burman Hospitality Private Limited (BHPL) as its Master Franchise Partner and committed to opening 600 restaurants in the country by 2029.
This association is aimed at making India Taco Bell’s largest market outside the United States. The brand continues to expand rapidly, with a new restaurant being opened every 10 days. The 50th restaurant has been opened at the buzzing Mantri Square Mall in Bangalore. Currently, Taco Bell is present in 11 key cities, including Delhi NCR, Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Chandigarh, Coimbatore and Mysore, among others.
Expressing his delight at this milestone achievement, Gaurav Burman, Director, Burman Hospitality Private Limited said, “BHPL partnered with Taco Bell International for India in 2015. Over the last four years, we have had the good fortune of building a team of over 1,300 employees who have all worked tirelessly to deliver the best product and experience possible to our many loyal consumers. I am extraordinarily proud of what the team has achieved; they have innovated the offering, the food, the ambience and we now have the best casual dining offering in the country. I could not be happier that we have hit the magnificent milestone of 50 restaurants with the opening of our Mantri Square Mall restaurant.
We will continue to work feverishly to bring our offerings to the four corners of India and strive to open 600 restaurants by 2029, which means we are now launching a new restaurant every 10 days. We are hugely grateful to our customers without whom this journey would not have been possible.”
Ankush Tuli, Managing Director, Taco Bell APAC added, “It gives us great pleasure to celebrate Taco Bell’s 50 restaurants in India with the newest launch in the city where our India journey started – Bangalore. We are extremely excited about this milestone as this achievement embodies the love and appreciation that our fans have shown us over the years.
We are grateful to have Burman Hospitality as our partners in India who have been instrumental in bringing Taco Bell’s unique social experience of food to life in India and we look forward to celebrating many more such milestones in partnership with them.”
