This restaurant truly captures Taco Bell’s “Live Más” brand philosophy which translates to “Live More”, as in more fervently and authentically, giving customers a truly unique dining experience accompanied by great food. Recognizing Malaysians’ passionate love of food, Taco Bell Malaysia introduces the spirit of “Live Kaw Kaw” – a colloquial expression that encourages Malaysians to make every day extraordinary through a truly unique dining experience.
“We are excited to finally bring this youthful and iconic brand to Malaysia, starting with Cyberjaya, our first Taco Bell outlet. The Mexican-inspired cuisine of Taco Bell is most certainly the best in the world from a restaurant chain. The two-storey restaurant design features Taco Bell’s signature iconic styles throughout the building from the rainbow-coloured Taco ceiling to our indoor sunroom with high glass panels, reflecting the brand’s youthful Taco Bell spirit,” said Harris Beh, Taco Bell Malaysia’s Franchise Operator.
Taco Bell, started in 1962 by founder Glen Bell in Southern California, quickly became a global powerhouse as it expanded to over 30 countries. The brand is known for making a big splash whenever it enters a new market, embracing fans, young and old, and welcoming them to its iconic and contemporary brand experience.
One of the key features of Malaysia’s first Taco Bell restaurant is the centrepiece mural art that is an interpretation of how the spirit of Malaysian culture and the Taco Bell brand are perfectly blended; the mural is designed in collaboration with local Malaysian artist, Wilson Ng. This initiative is part of the brand’s commitment to supporting the local creative community. All the features in the restaurant combine to create a colourful, fun and Instagram-worthy space.
