First Taco Bell opened in Finland – we advised on contract negotiations

  • Finland


    We have advised Restel Ltd. on contract negotiations with the American Tex-Mex-inspired fast food chain Taco Bell. As a result of the negotiations, the Taco Bell chain has been brought to Finland and the first restaurant was opened in Helsinki on 9 November. Already within a few weeks, Taco Bell will open two further restaurants in Espoo: on 16 November in the Sello shopping centre located in Leppävaara and on 23 November in the Iso Omena shopping centre in Matinkylä. Prior to this, Iceland has been the only Nordic country to have Taco Bell restaurants.

    Restel Ltd. has concluded a franchising agreement with Taco Bell. Eversheds Sutherland advised the client e.g. on the commencement of negotiations and on conducting the contract negotiations. Bringing Taco Bell to Finland had been a long-cherished dream for Restel Ltd’s CEO Mikael Backman.

    - We are eagerly waiting for Taco Bell food to land in Finland, comments Partner Tiina Ashorn who advised our client on the connections with Taco Bell.
