This Taco Bell Can't Get a Liquor License Because City Officials Don't Like Taco Bell

"Officials in a Michigan suburb have denied a liquor license to a local business simply because they don't like Taco Bell.

The Taco Bell Cantina concept is something the fast food chain is slowly rolling out in some parts of the country, offering an extended menu and alcohol sales. The location in Royal Oak opened in January and wanted to sell frozen margaritas and beer, according to the Detroit Free Press.

City Commissioner Kyle Dubuc tells the Free Press that letting Taco Bell serve alcoholic drinks "didn't fit with the city's vision" and that official preferred to give licenses to "locally managed, local concepts."
