Taco Bell Coming To Ka Makana Aliʻi

A stand-alone Taco Bell restaurant will open at Ka Makana Aliʻi later this year or early in 2021.

TD Food Group, Inc., which owns Pizza Hut and Taco Bell restaurants in Hawaiʻi and Guam, signed an agreement to bring a Taco Bell to the west side’s largest shopping center. Customers will be able to order via the Taco Bell Mobile Ordering App, or on two kiosk ordering stations in the restaurant’s dining room.

At time of publication, the specific location of Taco Bell within Ka Makana Aliʻi was still being confirmed.

The budget for the project is around $600,000. (By our math, that’s about 317,000 Doritos Locos Tacos.) According to building permits filed with the city, the restaurant will cost $350,000 to build, with an additional $250,000 in site work like landscaping, parking improvements, etc.

This will be the 24th Taco Bell on Oʻahu. There’s a Taco Bell in Kapolei at Kapolei Shopping Center, on Kamokila Blvd., and one in ʻEwa Beach, on Papipi Road.
