SWARTZ CREEK — Swartz Creek residents, and passers-by, soon will be able to get their gorditas and chalupas close to home.

Work crews broke ground on a new 2,029-square-foot Taco Bell at the corner of Miller and Elms roads about two weeks ago, said City Manager Paul Bueche.

The corporate-owned diner will feature the brand’s new exterior design, a “more modern” and “simplified” look, said architect Bill Beckett of WT Development Co., the Traverse City company facilitating the project.

“It’s the company’s latest, new image,” said Beckett. “It’s a departure from the Southwest style.”

Beckett said Taco Bell hopes to capture a lot of Interstate 69 traffic at the Swartz Creek location.

Taco Bell also has a restaurant about 2 1/2 miles away on Linden Road north of Miller Road in Flint Township.

Much of the Swartz Creek business is expected to be at the drive-thru, said Bueche.

Entrance to the restaurant will be on Elms Road south of Miller Road, he said.

Taco Bell is anticipating a mid- November opening, said Beckett.
