Taco Bell has decided to give it’s menu a fall makeover. Adding new combo’s and removing nine items from their menu. Gregg Rapp, a menu engineering consultant say “when it comes to deciding what items to remove, menu engineers start by getting rid of the menu items that are unpopular and less profitable.”
Even though removed items are usually not bestsellers, Rapp said that there will always be someone who complains about the changed menu. But there’s a simple trick to waylay angry customers.
“What we typically do is keep it in the kitchen for 60 days or so, so we’ll have it available, but then the next time the person comes in, they’ll have forgotten about it,” he said.
The new menu boards are designed to make it quicker and easier for guests to order. They’ve updated the craveable assortments that includes best-sellers and updated combo options, so be sure and check the # before you order.
The items that will be going away include:
- Beefy Mini Quesadilla
- Chips & Salsa
- Chipotle Chicken Loaded Griller
- Double Decker® Taco
- Cool Ranch & Fiery Doritos® Locos Tacos
- Double Tostada
- Power Menu Burrito
- XXL Grilled Stuft Burrito
