Want a side of fast internet with that Cheesy Gordita Crunch?
Taco Bell has worked to improve its presence in innovative restaurant technology solutions for several years. The fast food chain allows customers to pay online and through its Taco Bell app, boasts digital menu boards and offers free guest Wi-Fi.
Comcast's Business Enterprise Solutions will provide Taco Bell with a new managed wireless internet network, router solutions, faster download speeds for business continuity and a new VPN network.
Comcast will also implement a faster means of delivering electronic marketing and training materials among Taco Bell locations. That's especially important, the two companies said, because fast food restaurants generally experience employee turnover rates of more than 100%, making training materials a high priority.
Following strong third quarter earnings released Thursday, Yum! Brands stock was higher 7.5% to $79.87. Comcast shares were lower 0.7% to $35.83.
