Signal Mountain Taco Bell closing based on sales

The nation’s biggest Taco Bell franchisee closed its Signal Mountain restaurant this week because of poor sales at that store, but the company is reopening its tornado-damaged Taco Bell in Ringgold, Ga., today.

Tacala LLC, the Birmingham, Ala.-based chain that operates 24 Taco Bell restaurants in its Chattanooga region, shut down the Taco Bell on Taft Highway on Signal Mountain on Tuesday night.

“It was a business decision, and we hope consumers will visit our other Taco Bell locations, including our nearby unit in Red Bank,” Tacala marketing Vice President Marjorie Perlman said Wednesday.

The Ringgold Taco Bell was badly damaged in the April 27 tornado and will celebrate its grand reopening today.

Too bad Taco Smell doesn't close all of its locations. That food is not fit for human consumption.

Agree that all should close simply because the food is inedible. Teenagers seem to like it though, mostly because you canget filled up cheaply. The "plasma beef" they serve should be condemned by the health department. Of course, the idiots on the Signal Mountain council will probably block any decent operator from replacing the Taco Bell. Anyone who would deny a Publix location from coming to Signal Mountain does not have the best interests of the residents as a priority.
