For some reason, I get unusually giddy when something new and food related opens in Pittsfield and/or The Berkshires. It doesn't matter, it can be a fancy new locally owned place, or a well know chain restaurant. Well...

I know the photo says "Opening Late 2021", so they're a little behind, but who isn't? The COVID-19 pandemic has everything messed up!

Marjo and I announced on the air this morning that, according to a Facebook post from "Taco Bell Pittsfield", they will be opening up the new location on Wednesday, January, 19 at 7 a.m., with a ribbon cutting at 10 a.m.

Fans hoped to have the Taco Bell/KFC combo, but this will be just a stand alone Taco Bell.

The page also says that the existing Taco Bell in Berkshire Crossing will close at the end of business on Sunday, January 16.


For fans of cornhole and Mountain Dew check this out as well.

As far as we know, the plan for the old Taco Bell location, after some slight reconstruction, is still Chipotle.

There is no opening date yet for the popular burrito chain, but fans are super excited to have a Chipotle in Pittsfield.
