Danville Cantina Makes Waves in Forbes; QSR Mag and more


At DRG, we pride ourselves on being part of Taco Bell’s concept creation. Our new Danville Cantina is a great example of new innovation with the brand, and newsgroups across the country are taking note. Last week, Forbes featured the Cantina in an in-depth exclusive that impressively summarizes the new restaurant. This article stems from an interview we did with Forbes’ reporter Alicia Kelso. Kelso expressed her delight in discussing all things operations and franchisee relations. In addition to the Forbes piece, top-tier outlets covered our press release including media groups like CNNYahoo! Finance, and Business Insider and even lifestyle and trade media like Delish and NRN.

If there is any silver lining from this past year in the restaurant space, it’s that we now have a few solid case studies from brands that fared pretty well despite the crisis. Count Taco Bell among them.
