This Blog for just Information Since 1962, when Glen Bell opened the first Taco Bell restaurant in Downey, California, innovation has been a top priority for us. Since then, we have developed into a culture-focused lifestyle brand that offers boldly flavored, crave-able food at an affordable price. We are the first QSR restaurant to provide menu options that have been certified vegetarian by the American Vegetarian Association (AVA), in addition to offering revolutionary value and high-quality ingredients.
Over 7,000 restaurants run by Taco Bell and our more than 350 franchise companies serve more than 40 million people each week in the United States. The brand is expanding internationally, with approximately 500 eateries spread across roughly 30 nations.
