A fast food giant has finally announced the opening time for its first Scottish drive-through

Mexican-inspired restaurant Taco Bell will open its doors at 10.30am on December 11.

The new restaurant will bring 35 new jobs to the area with six management positions available.

Fans of the Taco Bell offering will be able to dine out in the 48 seat  restaurant and experience the classic menu enjoyed by people in stores around the UK.

Bob Miller, Taco Bell Irvine Store Manager, said: “We’re really pleased to be opening a Taco Bell in Irvine and making history with our first drive-thru restaurant in Scotland. We’re delighted to focus our investment in this area - Riverway Retail Park has a high footfall of those looking for entertainment and of course a bite to eat, providing us with the perfect spot to expand our portfolio in the area. We look forward to welcoming even more Taco Bell fans and first-timers through our doors.”

The new store opening will be the 33rd Taco Bell restaurant to open in the UK as part of its expansion plan.
