Back in April we told you that Taco Bell was going to offer delivery to their hungry patrons. That delicious and convenient day has arrived!!! But there’s a slight catch.
You can now have Triple Steak Burrito and your Doritos Cheesy Gordita Crunch delivered to your door, BUT only in certain markets. The fast-food company begins testing out their delivery service on Wednesday at 200 outlets in Dallas, Los Angeles, Orange County, Calif., and San Francisco. It will be available in a total of 90 cities surrounding each metropolitan area. No love for the East Coast. *sad face*
In April, Taco Bell wasn’t certain on the logistics of the distribution (No it’s not drones), but they have teamed up with the Palo Alto-based delivery service DoorDash to get your Beefy Nacho Griller right to your face without you having to step an inch outside. The company already provides delivery for chains like California Pizza Kitchen and The Counter.
You’ll place your order from anything on the entire Taco Bell menu through DoorDash’s app or website, decide if you want to pick it up or have it delivered (Have it delivered of course because you’re lazy, busy, drunk, high af, or probably all four). Then the app will even notify you when the driver is nearing your location.
There is no minimum order to make a purchase, but a $3.99 flat fee is added, and you’re encouraged to tip your driver, which will probably be a hit off a spliff.
During limited testing at stores in Dallas, Orange County, Palo Alto and San Jose, Calif., orders took roughly 38 minutes from when they were ordered to arriving at the customer’s door, said Tressie Lieberman, vice president of innovation and on demand at Taco Bell.
“We’ve been talking about delivery for a while, because it’s the No. 1 most requested thing” by customers, said Lieberman.
Taco Bell will be promoting their new delivery service on Periscope, Snapchat and Twitter over the next few days.
Thank you Taco Bell. Thank you.
