Dec. 18 (UPI) -- Obviously times are tough, but the opening of a new Taco Bell in Romulus, Mich., seems to have town residents a little too excited about the prospect of getting gorditas and chalupas close to home.

“OK, on three, everybody say, ‘Burrito Supreme!’” said Romulus Mayor LeRoy Burcroff at the restaurant’s grand opening.

Town residents have been salivating about getting a Taco Bell for quite a while.

“We’ve been waiting a long time for this,” said Planning Commission chairwoman
Cathy Freitag. “This is a great day for Romulus.”

The first customers, a man and his sons, were so pumped about the prospect of getting some Taco Bell that they were waiting outside 15 to 20 minutes before the restaurant even opened.

“I’ve been involved in city government for 16 years and served on the Planning Commission for eight of those years,” said Mayor Burcroff. “Of all the developments during that time, this is the one my kids are most excited about.”

The new store will employ 40 people, most of whom are Romulus residents.

“People are very excited about this,” said local resident Linda McNeil. “I’m a big fan of the taco supreme. I was going to the Wayne Taco Bell twice a week.”
