Why is Taco Bell giving away free burritos?

  • The giveaway on Thursday celebrates the nationwide return of breakfast to the Taco Bell menu, which was cut during the pandemic, according to USA Today.
  • Taco Bell started serving breakfast in 2014, and expanded its breakfast menu in March 2020 — just days before the pandemic hit, CNN reported.
  • Now, as restaurants and chains start to bounce back, 90% of Taco Bells nationwide are serving breakfast. The fast-food chain plans to expand breakfast to all restaurants in the future.
