The Taco Bell opening at Ga. Highway 20 and East Cherokee Drive in Macedonia is expected to open in August, according to its franchise owner.

Owner Munir Taherbhai said workers there broke ground for the building Monday, with a projected 90-day construction time frame. When the facility is complete, the fast food restaurant will train employees for a few weeks before it opens. The Macedonia Taco Bell will be Taherbhai’s 11th location among others in the state, including in Acworth and Dallas.

“We’re excited to be part of the community. In all of our locations, we get involved in local events and things. We’re looking forward to being there and serving our vibrant, innovative stuff,” he said.

The new location will create 25-30 jobs for the area, with extra hires for the restaurant’s opening weeks, the owner said.
