Taco Bell is upping its drive-thru game.
The fast-food chain announced this week that it will be breaking ground on a new drive-thru concept in Brooklyn Park, Minnesota, later this month.
The new concept – "Taco Bell Defy" – is a two-story, 3,000-square-foot building with four drive-thru lanes, which the chain calls "the frictionless future of Taco Bell."

Three of the lanes will be for mobile or delivery order pickups on the Taco Bell app, or on third-party delivery apps, to help ease "the flow of traffic" and give customers a "speedy experience," according to the announcement.
The "Taco Bell Defy" concept will also offer digital check-in screens, contactless delivery using a proprietary lift system and an elevated kitchen design to "optimize and streamline operations," the announcement said.
