Taco Bell is dabbling in the subscription plan marketplace with its new Taco Lover’s Pass.
The new feature, per a CNBC report from Amelia Lucas, is currently being tested in Arizona and notably arrives more than a year after the chain’s loyalty program launched. The pass is speculated to be designed with the goal of encouraging customers to download and use the Taco Bell app, which allows for more customization options for pre-ordering.

At the time of this writing, it’s unclear what the plan will be after the Arizona testing period for the pass ends on Nov. 24. Complex has reached out to a rep for Taco Bell for additional comment.
