In response to records of a national tortilla shortage, Taco Bell reported to Fox News that they are working hard to provide the supply at affected restaurants. The firm did not prove how many stores are being affected, only stating that “some Taco Bell restaurants” have been affected.
The shortage is possibly due to a problem with the company’s supplier, according to a statement received by Fox News.
While several posts have arrived on Reddit claiming that the problem is much larger and could affect restaurants on a national scale. According to a post from someone claiming to be an employee, the company is dealing with a national warehouse shortage on 10” tortillas, which are used in many of the restaurant’s offerings, including burritos, quesadillas, and other related items. Other posts simply show pictures of signs users claims are posted at Taco Bells explaining that they are unable to make burritos and quesadillas. Yet another post from another user claiming to be an employee says that the shortage is expected to last through the “first couple of weeks of July” and that the company has a “goal of July 28 to be at normal stock.”A spokesperson for Taco Bell provided Fox News with the following statement: “While some Taco Bell restaurants are undergoing supplier shortages, we are working diligently to provide the supply of our tortillas (used for products like quesadillas and burritos) in those restaurants and inspire followers to try the Chalupa Cravings Box in the meantime. We apologize for any trouble this might cause and appreciate our customers’ patience.”
