Taco Bell Set to Open in Kingsville


The town of Kingsville will soon have a new fast food restaurant.

Taco Bell is set to open its first Essex County location in the former McDonalds restaurant on Main St.

Deputy Mayor Gord Queen says it is generating a buzz in the community.

Queen believes it also adds to the nice mix of restaurants in the town.

"I think as a municipality we're fortunate, we've got a lot of fine dining establishments and this just adds to the mix trying to serve all of our residents," he says.

Queen also points out that more businesses are coming to Kingsville.

"Our economic development committee and our staff worked well in terms of enticing businesses to Kingsville," he says. "We have another credit union being built just down the street as well."

An official opening date for the new Taco Bell has not been announced but a job fair is set for August 7th.

It will take place at the Employment Assessment Centre at 47 Pearl St. E. in Kingsville and 215 Talbot St. E. in Leamington between 10am and 3pm.

The fast food restaurant is looking to fill full and part-time positions.
