Another northside Lafayette business is shutting its doors.

The Taco Bell located at 1224 NE Evangeline Thruway will close, according to a Taco Bell corporate spokesperson via The Advocate.

The closure, which is expected to be in two months, will follow the Walmart Supercenter and Sam’s Southern Eatery closings their doors and the Lafayette Convention and Visitors Commission moving its offices downtown.

Is there a chance that the Taco Bell could stay open? While we may not know the answer to that specific question B&G Food Enterprises—the Morgan City-based franchisee—says they will make a final decision on that Evangeline Thruway location by July 1.

With the Walmart Supercenter closing earlier this year, LCVC moving downtown, and Payless set to close this month, the popular stretch of the Thruway (which many people consider to be the "entrance to Lafayette") seems to be looking bleaker by the day.

Let's hope we don't see any more businesses in that area close anytime soon.
