Taco Bell will deliver (to some people, somewhere) in 2015. This is not a drill. If you’re like me, and you probably aren’t, you’ve wished the fast-food chain could deliver its delectably unhealthy foodstuffs right to your door. If you are like me, then congratulations: 2015 might become the best year of your life. The company is still figuring exactly how it’ll work, but Taco Bell CEO Brian Niccol told Nation’s Restaurant News that “some form of delivery” will be tested by the end of the year. NRN noted that Burger King also delivers in some markets, but let’s be real—no one cares.
“Even though it’s the No. 1 request from consumers, we have to make sure we can give them an experience that’s consistent with Taco Bell, and that’s what we’re working through,” Niccol told NRN. “We have to figure it out, and I can tell you right now we don’t have it figured out.” So, basically no details yet, but who cares? NOM NOM NOM NOM.
The concept of fast-food delivery might seem odd to some, but in a post-GrubHub society, in which Starbucks is planning to deliver your pumpkin spice latte in select cities and TaskRabbit allows you to pay people to perform your every tedious obligation, it’s no longer shocking. And with Amazon making moves to deliver by drone, a fast-food chain delivering a few cheap tacos sounds pretty quaint.
But more to the point: A Number 9! With a soft taco! And another soft taco! AT YOUR DOOR. Praise be to Taco Bell. Because of you, I can truly die happy—and perhaps very, very young.
