Ashley Jones, chief executive of Restaurant Brands Australia which operates Taco Bell in NSW and the ACT, said COVID-19 had briefly disrupted the roll out of the new store.

"Understandably, COVID-19 has meant that our Taco Bell NSW rollout was temporarily slowed but we are pleased to be back opening restaurants, serving delicious tacos and burritos to our fans," he said.

"It's good news for local communities, who have benefitted from job opportunities via local construction, produce supply and over 100 new retail jobs across the state."

Ballina's Taco Bell store is on the corner of Kerr and Fox Sts, and will be open from 10am until 10pm.
