Earlier this year, Taco Bell announced the opening of its first shipping container outpost in South Gate, California. While the brand originally came up with the idea back in 2015 with a shipping container pop-up at SXSW, the newest store is meant to be a permanent location.

Taco Bell's new shipping container outpost is a 1080-square-foot retail space, housed inside a series of old cargo containers. Designed by SG Blocks, the new Tex-Mex restaurant consists of a kitchen, a walk-up service counter and outdoor seating.

While the popular Tex-Mex chain is no stranger to creative retail concepts, the new shipping container store is meant to serve as part of a company-wide green initiative to create more sustainable spaces.
