MEXICAN food specialist Taco Bell is to open its first restaurant in Renfrewshire.

The new eatery, based at the Phoenix Leisure Park, just off Linwood Road, Paisley, will be able to seat more than 100 diners and will also operate a drive-thru lane, home delivery and 'click and collect' service.

It will open on Friday, August 7, becoming only the fourth Taco Bell in Scotland.

Lucy Dee, marketing lead at Taco Bell UK, said: “We’ve had our eye on a potential restaurant in this area for a while and we know we’ve got plenty of fans there who we’re looking forward to welcoming through our doors.”
