GREENCASTLE, Pa. — A new Taco Bell restaurant could be open in the Greencastle area before the end of the year.
“I think we should be open this year. I hope before Christmas,” Tom Cook, director of development for BurgerBusters Inc., said Friday.
BurgerBusters Inc., based in Virginia Beach, Va., operates franchisee organizations for Taco Bell in North America.
“If all goes well, we could have the Taco Bell up and running by the fourth quarter of this year,” he said.
Until you get all of your permits, it’s difficult to judge when the store will open, Cook said.
The new Taco Bell will be where Arby’s restaurant is located at 10820 John Wayne Drive in Greencastle.
Cook said Arby’s would be demolished and a new Taco Bell would be constructed at the site at the intersection of Pa. 16 and John Wayne Drive.
“I think, basically, it’s an old building and doesn’t suit our needs,” Cook said when asked why it was necessary to tear down Arby’s.
