OTTAWA — Taco Bell plans to build a new store on the former Red Pig Inn property. Black River Bells, LLC, a company that is based in Michigan, formally announced Tuesday that it will open a new 1,700 square foot Taco Bell restaurant and drive-thru at 1470 N. Perry St., Ottawa.
The Red Pig Inn restaurant will be demolished to make way for the new store. Black River Bells representative Clint Lyders said groundbreaking will occur on October 21, 2022, and the new store is expected to open in March 2023. Once the new location opens, Taco Bell will no longer maintain its East Main Street store inside the Ottawa Party Mart.
National real estate brokers and attorneys led this project, and no local developers were involved. The Village of Ottawa Planning Commission approved the site plan for Taco Bell at its May 20 meeting.
