California has officially outdone itself, truly, it doesn’t get any more Californian than this story out of Walnut Creek….That or the plot of 1993’s Demolition Man is finally coming true, and California secretly went through some sort of apocalyptic event and Taco Bell was the only restaurant to survive, leading to super classy ‘VIP’ versions of Taco Bell. Only in California would fast food chain Taco Bell begin offering free valet parking to customers who want to feel like VIPs, which in California is every single person (they all want to feel like VIPs).
WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Nov. 23 (UPI) — Customers at a California Taco Bell are being offered a luxury service exclusive to the location — free valet parking.
The Encina Grande shopping center in Walnut Creek is offering the service amid an $18 million redevelopment project, allowing shoppers at businesses including Taco Bell to have their cars parked for them.
The loading section for the valet lot is located only a few yards from Taco Bell’s entrance, ensuring the fast food customers can “Live the VIP life,” as it says on the chain’s beverage cups.
The valet service is only available during limited hours: 11:30 a.m. through 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
Meanwhile in California…
You’ll never find me knocking Taco Bell, I’m A HUGE FAN of Taco Bell. It’s one of my favorite road trip fast food chains (I don’t eat it often in my every day life), but I mostly stop there because it’s fast, easy, and I know what to expect every single time. It’s not because I want to have my car valet parked, and I don’t feel like a VIP when I valet park my car. Valet parking is just part of life, sometimes it’s the only available option.
