You might have been to Taco Bell lately in Tupelo and been asked your thoughts on another store opening in Tupelo.
Indeed, Phil Little, the franchise owner for the Tupelo and Corinth Taco Bell locations, said he’s doing his due diligence in determining whether to open a store on West Main Street in the future.
“Nothing’s been decided at all,” Little said. “But in looking at where we might possibly put another location in Tupelo, West Main Street made the most sense.”
Taco Bell has locations on Barnes Crossing Road and on South Gloster Street, and Little – along with the Taco Bell corporate team – want to know how a West Main store might affect the other two.
Little has been doing some informal surveys lately, but said a third-party company will soon begin a more extensive survey to determine what customers would like to see.
“It would be at least a year before we would see another location,” Little said. “And there’s no guarantee there will be another one. We’re just looking into it right now.”
