As the world's leading Mexican-inspired restaurant brand Taco Bell reached another milestone in its India journey with the launch of its 50th restaurant at Bangalore’s Mantri Square Mall, it roped in a slew of influencers, including celebrity chefs, to make some noise.

Raising instant awareness about the 50th restaurant and Taco Bell’s offers to celebrate the milestone, the influencers are helping the brand expand its consumer base. While the QSR category has been taking the influencer route mainly to promote any new store, product and offer, Taco Bell communicated that it is celebrating the success through this campaign.

As a part of the campaign, influencers are posting pictures with tacos and inviting the audience to share their favourite way of enjoying tacos #bigtacobell50 #50waystotaco. With an estimated media spend of just Rs 3 lakh, the campaign achieved an estimated reach of more than 800k.
