First look inside Mansfield's new Taco Bell as team promises 'community focus'

VIP guests enjoyed a first look at Mansfield’s newest restaurant ahead of its public opening tomorrow.

Guests including bloggers and fundraisers tucked into tacos and drinks before Taco Bell opens tomorrow morning, Thursday, July 30.

The new restaurant is part of the Stockwell Gateway development on the former Mansfield Bus Station site, alongside pizza giant Domino’s, which opened last week, and Canadian fast-food chain Tim Horton’s, which has announced it will open on July 14.

The new Taco Bell offers customers the option to dine-in, drive thru or use the delivery service – and is promising free tacos to the first 100 customers when it opens tomorrow.

James Ryder, store manager, said: “It has been fantastic getting ready to open.

“We hired the staff and had two weeks of training in-store. The team morale has been amazing, the staff we have hired are great.

“The feedback from our friends and family night was good too – they all loved it.

“We have some flyers for our customers this week, lots of discounts will be going out too – we want people to come down and try it.”

Many of the families won online competitions to join the VIP event.

”It is Mansfield’s Taco Bell, we want to be involved in the community.”
