Orange, New Jersey: A location of Taco Bell will open in Orange, a company spokesperson confirmed to Essex County Place. The restaurant will be owned by the Somerset County-based Yum & Chill Restaurant Group. It will be located near the West Orange border at 540 Main Street, at the corner of South Jefferson Street. A building housing a former laundromat and Chinese restaurant is currently located at the site. A Mexican restaurant that used to operate next door recently closed. Currently, the only Essex County location of the international fast food Tex-Mex franchise is in Belleville. However, another location will open soon at the Springfield Avenue Marketplace in Newark's Central Ward, and an additional location is proposed for Irvington.
