Western Australia will get its first Taco Bell store when the US chain opens in Midland this month. Doors open at 10am on Wednesday September 29 with a launch party featuring live music, games, merch giveaways and live graffiti. (One person will also win free Taco Bell for an entire year.)

The colourful new store will have indoor and outdoor dining, an open kitchen, an original mural by local artist Handbrake, tech-charging stations and free wi-fi.

As for what’s on the plate, you can expect the Cali-Mex chain’s popular line-up of tacos, burritos and nachos, including fan-favourites Crunchwrap Supreme, Boss Burrito and Cheesy Double Decker Taco. There’ll also be a snack menu with bang-for-buck menu items from $2.

Broadsheet Access members get special tables at busy restaurants, tickets to exclusive events and discounts on food, coffee, brand offers and more.

Taco Bell, which was founded in California in 1962, relaunched in Australia in 2017, following two failed attempts in the ’80s and ’90s. Its latest attempt saw it begin with a raft of eateries in Queensland, before launching in Newcastle, following up with a few more outposts in NSW and Victoria. There are currently 22 Taco Bell stores in Australia; by 2024 the company intends to have more than 60 Taco Bell outlets in Australia and NZ.

Taco Bell will open at 226 Great Eastern Highway, Midland on Wednesday September 29 and will trade daily from 10am till 11pm.
