In Chattanooga? Head to Taco Bell
As Taco Bell prepares to take its breakfast menu national sometime next year, its expanding its test stores in Alabama’s neighbor to the north, Tennessee.
The fast-food chain says the waffle taco, which includes scrambled eggs, sausage and a side of syrup, was the top seller during breakfast hours at the five California restaurants where they were tested earlier this year. Now the waffle tacos and a full breakfast menu have been expanded to about 100 restaurants in Fresno, Calif., Omaha, Neb., and Chattanooga, Tenn.
Taco Bell already offers breakfast at about 850 locations in 10 Western states and has been tinkering with new items such as the waffle taco before rolling it out to its 6,000 U.S. locations. Also being tested are a yogurt parfait and oatmeal.
