Taco Bell will open the “Taco Bell Defy” location in Brooklyn Park, Minn. on Tuesday. The two-story restaurant will feature a four-lane drive-through and a tech system that will allow for order pickups and communication between customers and workers on the second floor. Delivery drivers for third-party services like GrubHub will also be able to swiftly move through the drive-through system. Taco Bell is considering retrofit options, alongside franchisee partner Border Foods, for locations close to the Taco Bell Defy restaurant. Taco Bell Defy aims to reduce the drive-through service time to under two minutes, the fast-food chain said. Taco Bell is part of the Yum Brands Inc. portfolio. Yum stock is down 14% for the year to date while the S&P 500 index has slumped 13.5% for the period.
