THE new Taco Bell outlet in Greenock is due to open today.

The Mexican-style chain is set to open its doors at the Waterfront Retail Park.

Planning permission for the 92-capacity restaurant was granted back in 2019 but the project was delayed by the coronavirus crisis.

The new outlet is expected to create around 40 new jobs.

The Greenock branch will join Taco Bell outlets already operating in Irvine, Linwood and Glasgow.
