They're proposing to build a Taco Bell on West Main Street in Meriden, CT on the site of the former Ryder's Cafe. Don't know if this will be their second location in Meriden or a replacement for their location on East Main Street.

Taco Bell coming to former Ryder’s on Main in Meriden, Ace Hardware planned for Kaye’s pharmacy site

MERIDEN — Developers for Taco Bell are working with the city to build a new restaurant and drive-through at the former Ryder’s on Main.

The city is also in contact with representatives from Ace Hardware to convert the former Kaye’s Pharmacy on East Main Street into a new store. 

City Planner Robert Seale said Wednesday that engineers for the Taco Bell who are seeking a special exemption that would allow for a drive-through window on the property. The developer would also have to submit a traffic study with its proposed site plan.

“We have some concerns about traffic on that part of West Main Street,” Seale said. “It will be an improvement to that site. We’re trying to bring in commercial in that area. It’s a good commercial corridor that can benefit services and businesses in that part of town.”

Plans call for razing the former bar and restaurant at 467 W. Main St. and the businesses in a rear parcel at 473 W. Main St. The Ryder family sold the two properties to Lisciotti Development of Leominster, Massachusetts in May.   

The city is also working with the owners of ACE Hardware to renovate the former Kaye’s/CVS  Pharmacy at 697 E. Main St.

The conversion requires no site plan approval because the owner is working with the existing building and lot area.

”He wants to clean it up and make facade improvements to make it look more like 2017, not 1979,” Seale said. “He’s planning a soft opening in March.”
