Taco Bell to land in Malaysia soon

American food-food chain Taco Bell is set to launch in Malaysia at Tropicana Gardens Mall in Kota Damansara.

The opening has yet to be officially announced, but hoardings have appeared on a retail space within the mall announcing its imminent opening.

Taco Bell will be operated by QSR Brands, which holds the Malaysian license for KFC and Pizza Hut, which are both owned by Yum Brands.

While Taco Bell had outlets in Singapore that were subsequently withdrawn just over a decade ago, the franchise has recently announced intentions to expand in the Asia-Pacific market, where it already has locations in Thailand and the Philippines.

The brand has also revealed intentions to enter Indonesia, while Thai operator Siam Taco is said to be eyeing Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam.
