WAUKESHA — The city of Waukesha could soon be getting another Taco Bell, this one on the city’s far north side.

The Albor Restaurant Group has applied through the city to construct a Taco Bell restaurant and drivethru at 2707 N. Grandview Blvd., near the busy intersection of North Grandview Boulevard and Silvernail Road. The site is currently occupied by Silvernail Woods Office Park.

Albor expects the new building to be 2,112 square feet and to “feature a new prototypical style for Taco Bell.”

The proposed restaurant would operate seven days a week, opening as early as 7 a.m. The dining area of the restaurant would close at 11 p.m. everyday, but the drive-thru would stay open until 3 a.m. on weekdays and 4 a.m. on weekends. While Taco Bell does operate a dozen or so Taco Bell Cantina restaurants across the country, this new restaurant will be a typical franchise and would not serve alcohol.

The site plan also calls for about 18 parking spots for those looking to dine in or pick up their orders on foot.

Albor Restaurant Group’s upper management team consists of many multi-unit managers who each have well over 15 years of “quick service restaurant experience,” the application letter states.

Their proposal is slated to go before the city Plan Commission on March 13, according to online city records.
