WALNUT CREEK, Calif., Nov. 23 (UPI) -- Customers at a California Taco Bell are being offered a luxury service exclusive to the location -- free valet parking.
The Encina Grande shopping center in Walnut Creek is offering the service amid an $18 million redevelopment project, allowing shoppers at businesses including Taco Bell to have their cars parked for them.
The loading section for the valet lot is located only a few yards from Taco Bell's entrance, ensuring the fast food customers can "Live the VIP life," as it says on the chain's beverage cups.
The valet service is only available during limited hours: 11:30 a.m. through 2:30 p.m. and 5 p.m. to 10 p.m.
The valet parking scheme may not have come from Taco Bell headquarters, but the company is no stranger to testing new services: A Chicago Taco Bell became the first in the nation to offer alcoholic beverages during the summer and markets including Houston are testing a delivery service this year.
