9-Year-Old Girl Writes Letter to Taco Bell, & Now They May Offer Delivery
If you really want something, sometimes all you have to do is ask.
OK, it might not always work out that way, but it sure did for 9-year-old Kinsley James from Davison, Michigan.
As part of a classroom exercise, Kinsley wrote a sincere yet firm letter to Taco Bell asking for delivery in her area.
According to ABC12, a local news outlet in Michigan, the letter reads:
"Dear Taco Bell, today, I really wanted tacos, but my mean mom wouldn't take me and I'm only 9, so I cannot drive."
She then lists off a few reasons Taco Bell should really consider delivery — and they're all valid reasons (especially the nacho fries one).
"What if somebody just had surgery and cannot drive?" she asks, adding what if "you're feeling lazy but really want nacho fries?"
In the end, though, Kinsley knows the bottom line: "This is a way to make more money."
Kinsley's mom, Cindy Prevo, loved the letter so much, she sent it to Taco Bell's corporate office two days later and neither she nor Kinsley could believe what happened next.
"Remember Kinsley's persuasive essay to Taco Bell last week about implementing a delivery service?!" Prevo wrote on Facebook. "I sent it to corporate because I thought it was hilarious and today we got a phone call from them!!"
She continues to write that corporate conducted a short interview with Kinsley and said, "[S]he is famous in the Taco Bell world."
Prevo explained, "That everyone in the company got a copy of her letter, and they all adore her and that they are very excited to share with her that after sending her letter to all the right people, something that is going to excite her is about to happen."
Kinsley asked the person on the other end of the phone, "Does this mean you're delivering?!" to which corporate responded, "Let's just say that you will be very excited about our new service coming soon."
According to Prevo, Taco Bell's corporate office was so proud of Kinsley and told her she was "amazingly innovative."
You go, girl!
It doesn't end there, though: Taco Bell also invited Kinsley to the Taco Bell Convention in Las Vegas to read her letter aloud.
To say Kinsley is nervous is likely an understatement — there will be 400 franchise owners in the audience, after all.
"I am a little nervous," she told ABC12. "You're going on a stage in front of a lot of people, with the president of Taco Bell reading them a persuasive letter that you made."
Kinsley's trip is scheduled for Sept. 23 to 25.
As for when Taco Bell will roll out a delivery service? Hopefully, they'll make an announcement at the Las Vegas Convention.
