When fast food fans will first taste Taco Bell on Teesside
The developer behind a large fast food site near Middlesbrough has given an update on when construction is complete.
Taco Bell, Burger King and Greggs are all opening drive-thru restaurants off the A66 at South Bank. The Diggers started the £3.5m scheme opposite car dealership SG Petch.
The chains, which are among the biggest names in fast food in the UK, have all taken out long-term leases. Now Yorkshire-based Almscliffe-Dhesi Developments has given an idea of when Teessiders could have their first meals there.

The company is converting the brownfield development with three self-contained units. Neil Creeney, who owns and runs the Almscliffe-Dhesi Group, said: “We are on site! At the moment we are planning to hand over the units in August.”
Given that it will take about six to eight weeks to set up the restaurants thereafter, the site could welcome its first customers by October. This is the first time Taco Bell, specializing in Mexican cuisine, has opened a restaurant in Teesside.
Burger King’s drive-thru will also be a first for Middlesbrough, although the chain has been part of Teesside for many years with a drive-thru restaurant in Teesside Park and further branches in Middlesbrough’s Hill Street Center and Parkway Centre, Coulby Newham. Greggs has a growing number of drive-thru services across the UK, including the North East.
The South Bank branch will be Teesside’s first. It will also have electric vehicle charging stations through electric vehicle network company Osprey.
