Late last year we revealed that Taco Bell is planning to rapidly expand across both Australia and New Zealand with a slew of new stores.

Taco Bell's parent company Restaurant Brands, which also holds the rights to KFC, Carl's Jnr, Pizza Hut and Starbucks in New Zealand, has now started the recruitment process for its first Auckland store, which is pencilled to open mid-September.

As reported by Stuff, the Tex-Mex fast-food chain will take over the former space of Wagamama in West Auckland's Lynn Mall. The New Zealand Stock Exchange-listed company has also applied for a liquor licence, which will operate from Monday to Friday, 8am-1am.

Restaurant Brands already owns upwards of 30 Taco Bell stores throughout Hawaii and Guam. The agreement reached with Taco Bell Restaurants Asia will see with the construction of more than 60 new restaurants in New Zealand and Australia between 2019 and 2024.

While the exact opening date hasn't yet been revealed, fans of burritos, quesadillas, nachos and, of course, tacos, can expect to start munching away before next summer hits.
