Taco Bell hopes third time will be lucky in Australia

Related tags: Fast food, Kfc

Taco Bell appears to have put previous setbacks behind it and is is set for an imminent return to Australia.

The Yum! Brands-owned Mexican fast food chain last pulled out of the country in 2005. 

It had previously re-entered the market seven years earlier after abandoning an experiment in the Eighties when a Sydney restaurant won a court case over naming rights. 

Collins Foods, which runs a number of KFC stores and Sizzler within Australia, has the rights to the Taco Bell name there.

In a statement, Collins said a former Sizzler restaurant in Annerley, Brisbane, will be the launch location.

[We are] currently recruiting for staff for the new restaurant, further details will be announced closer to the restaurant opening​.”

The Australian Mexican fast food segment is already dominated by the established franchise chains Guzman y Gomez, Mad Mex and Zambrero.
