March 24, 2015 // Franchising.com // IRVINE, Calif. – It’s been one year since Taco Bell® shook up morning routines and launched its innovative Breakfast menu of Burritos, all-in-one AM Crunchwraps and Cinnabon Delights. Now, the brand is launching the Biscuit Taco on Thursday, March 26, 2015, and encouraging people to escape the same round breakfast sandwich by defecting to the next generation of breakfast at Taco Bell.
Taco Bell listened to fans and friends who shared that biscuits are a breakfast staple. Known to add más flavor to people’s lives, Taco Bell took a warm, fluffy, buttery biscuit, folded it in the shape of a taco and filled it with classic breakfast flavors that people love like sausage, eggs and cheese or Taco Bell’s New premium marinated all-white-meat Crispy Chicken that is breaded in tortilla chips and served with Jalapeno Honey or Country Gravy.
“This year is about making sure we continue to give people the food they crave in a way that’s unique to Taco Bell,” said Brian Niccol, CEO, Taco Bell Corp. “Our Biscuit Taco delivers just that; it will reinvent the fast food breakfast experience by moving away from boring, round sandwiches and inserting bold tastes and flavors. Ultimately, we aim to make the breakfast day-part as famous as our late night.”
The Biscuit Taco will be offered at participating locations for a suggested retail price (SRP) of $2.49 excluding tax, in the following options:
As always at Taco Bell, customers have the option to customize their orders to their liking, and can do so at their convenience via Taco Bell’s New Mobile Ordering and Payment App.
To support the next generation of breakfast, Taco Bell will be launching a multi-channel marketing campaign empowering people to change their morning routine and “defect” to a New kind of breakfast at Taco Bell. The campaign includes a three minute film produced by Deutsch L.A., as well as a 60 second spot and 15 second customer testimonial spots featuring real Breakfast Defectors that begin airing on Thursday, March 26, 2015.
“When we launched breakfast last year, we wanted to be so disruptive that customers’ heads and cars turned towards our drive-thrus,” said Chris Brandt, Chief Marketing Officer, Taco Bell Corp. “Building on that momentum, we’re now putting a spotlight on today’s mundane daily breakfast routine to inspire defection towards the next generation of breakfast at Taco Bell.”

In addition to the New Biscuit Taco at breakfast, Taco Bell will be giving customers bold flavor and bold crunch by offering Crispy Chicken throughout the day and night. The Chickstar™, Crispy Chicken Grillers and Double Crispy Chicken Quesadilla will be available for a limited time at participating locations beginning Thursday, March 26, 2015. People can also customize their orders by substituting or adding the New crispy chicken to their favorite items. Taco Bell’s New premium marinated all-white-meat Crispy Chicken is breaded in tortilla chips and comes with a variety of flavorful sauces. Full product information can be found below.
