About Taco Bell

Taco Bell is a world-famous fast restaurant chain. There are 7,072 Taco Bell outlets worldwide. Taco Bell serves over 2 billion customers each year and has revenues of over $2 billion. The chain is owned and run by PepsiCo. 

Taco Bell was founded by an entrepreneur named Glen Bell in 1962. It started as a hot dog stand in California but later switched to selling novelty hard shell tacos, which became immensely popular and made Bell famous.

Bell went on to open a Mexican restaurant called Taco Tia, later expanding to three locations. In 1962, Bell opened the first Taco Bell in California. The restaurant chain expanded rapidly but is still named after its founder. 

The Taco Bell Menu

Taco Bell has a delicious Tex-Mex – or Texan Mexican fusion – menu. It’s best known for selling tacos, quesadillas, burritos, nachos, and other Mexican specialty and novelty items. It also has a value menu items section.

The old Taco Bell sold novelty “hard shell” tacos that were new to California. They were priced at just 19 cents and customers pronounced them as “Tay-Kohs”.  The other items sold were burritos, tostadas, and chiliburgers. 

Modern Taco Bell franchises sell over 50 unique menu items. The best ones, according to popular opinion, are the soft taco, Mexican pizza, cinnamon twists, shredded chicken mini quesadillas, nacho cheese Dorito locos, and the breakfast crunch-wrap.
