As of Wednesday, July 8, Taco Bell has officially begun testing out its new delivery service in select markets. Customers serviced by the 200 chosen outlets, spread across Texas and California, will be able to order Taco Bell to their door via DoorDash.
Like Postmates, a service used by Starbucks, Chipotle, and McDonald’s, DoorDash is an independent delivery service that places and delivers your order for a flat fee. There is no delivery minimum, but DoorDash’s services will cost the customer an additional $3.99.
Although the delivery service is still in its infancy, Taco Bell has been highly conscious of the ongoing request for such a service, and expansion seems more than likely.
Earlier this year, during an interview with Nation’s Restaurant News, CEO Brian Niccol acknowledged that delivery has been the company’s top request, and that the team was in the process of creating a delivery “experience that’s consistent with Taco Bell.”
The delivery service is expected to be heavily promoted across Taco Bell’s social media channels in the next several weeks.
