retail news in context, analysis with attitude

•  From CNBC, a story about how Taco Bell is testing a new subscription program:

"Customers with the Taco Lover’s Pass can order one crunchy taco, soft taco, spicy potato soft taco or Doritos Locos taco per day for 30 days straight on the chain’s app. The cost of the pass ranges from $5 to $10 a month, depending on the location. The Yum Brands chain is testing the program across 17 locations in Tucson, Arizona from Sept. 9 to Nov. 24."

The pass is designed "encourage more consumers to download and use Taco Bell’s app," the story says.
