Some Taco Bell Restaurants Face Tortilla Shortages: Taco Bell has a tortilla problem.
The chain said some restaurants are experiencing a shortage of tortillas from suppliers, and that it is “working diligently to replenish supplies.” Taco Bell, which has about 7,000 locations in the United States, did not share how many restaurants are dealing with the shortage.
“We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause,” Taco Bell added in a statement. The tortillas are used for their quesadillas and burritos.

Some exasperated social media users complained about the limited menu on Twitter.
“I’m at one of their locations in the Greater Rochester area and they’re out of tortillas!” Wrote one user on July 1. Another user complained about June 30 about a shortage at a location in Rome, New York. Several said they were told by staff that the Taco Bell shortage is occurring in various locations around the country.
The shortage does not appear to be affecting Taco Bell’s competitors.
In response to inquiries, Chipotle and Qdoba told CNN Business that they are not experiencing a shortage. Qdoba noted that he does not expect it in the near future.
Taco Bell encouraged customers to order menu items that aren’t made with tortillas, like the Power Menu Bowl or Cheesy Gordita Crunch.
Last year, KFC, which, like Taco Bell and Pizza Hut, is owned by Yum! Brands, faced a chicken shortage so severe that it had to temporarily close hundreds of restaurants in the UK. The brand apologized to customers for the inconvenience with a mocking ad.
