China is finally getting a Taco Bell.
Executives from parent company Yum! Brands Inc. said Tuesday that the first location is set to open by the end of the year in Shanghai. According to NRN, sister brands KFC and Pizza Hut have done pretty well in the country and it seems like Taco Bell will finally have a turn.
Yum Brands CEO Greg Creed says this will be the beginning of a huge potential for China.
The majority of Taco Bell’s 6,400 restaurants are in the United States. With the introduction to China, Yum hopes to expand the brand even further.
Operations in China will be spearheaded by a separate company called New Yum.
