Taco Bell has revealed the opening date for its hotly anticipated Orange store.
The Mexican-inspired fast food chain has declared Tuesday October 26 as Orange's "Taco Tuesday", with doors to open from 10am at its store at 52-54 Bathurst Road, across the road from Memory Park.
A spokesperson for the popular American franchise said the store was gearing up to welcome fans with "a fun filled day" that will feature giveaways of Taco Bell's much-loved merchandise, including its signature oversized taco hats, exclusive Taco Bell Orange tees and FIRE sauce socks.
The 40-seat dining room will be closed for the opening due to NSW Health guidelines but drive through and take away will be available.
The store will feature three self-service ordering kiosks and will look to launch delivery later in the year.
While diners won't be able to consume food in store on opening day, take away customers will still be able to watch their order being made in the kitchen viewing window, refill their drinks with free soft drink refills in the dining room and queue up their favourite song on the digital jukebox while they wait.
They will also be able to use the free Wi-Fi and charging pads.
Opening hours will be Monday to Sunday from 10am to 10pm.
On the menu are all the Taco Bell favourites including the Beefy Cheesy Burrito, Crunchy Taco, Quesadilla, Stacked Nachos, Boss Burrito and hot chips with Mexican seasoning.
Sweet treats chocodilla and churros will be on offer for dessert.
The store will employ 70 Orange locals, including a four person management team. Jobs are being advertised now and a representative from the company says Taco Bell will be "always looking for people to join the team in casual or full time positions." Applications are open on tacobell.com.au.
Taco Bell Orange will be the seventh Taco Bell restaurant in NSW, bringing the national total to 24 stores.
Taco Bell has already opened other regional stores at Albion Park, Ballina and Tamworth.
New Taco Bell opening days in other locations have seen frenzied fans go to great lengths to be the first to try the food.
Last month, more than 200 people lined up outside Perth's new store well ahead of its 10am opening, with some even camping out overnight.
