[WorldKings – World Almanac Event 2023] 61st anniversary of establishment of Taco Bell (March 21, 1962 – March 21, 2023)


(WorldKings.org) Taco Bell is an American-based chain of fast-food restaurants originating in Irvine, California in 1962, by founder Glen Bell. Taco Bell is a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, Inc. The restaurants serve a variety of Mexican-inspired foods, that include: tacos, burritos, quesadillas, nachos, novelty and specialty items, along with a variety of "value menu" items.

Taco Bell had innovation on its mind since Glen Bell started serving tacos at the first location in 1962 in Downey, California. Since then, it has grown to be a culture-centric, lifestyle brand that provides crave-able, affordable Mexican-inspired food with bold flavors. Not only does it provide breakthrough value, but it also offers quality ingredients and is the first QSR restaurant to offer American Vegetarian Association (AVA)-certified menu items.



Taco Bell and more than 350 franchise organizations operate over 7,000 restaurants that serve more than 40 million customers each week in the U.S. Internationally, the brand is growing with nearly 500 restaurants across almost 30 countries across the globe.

Besides, it provides educational opportunities and serves the community through a nonprofit organization, the Taco Bell Foundation, and supports fans and team members through programs such as the Live Más Scholarship. It also provides access to sports, gaming and new music through Feed The Beat program.



Outside of the restaurants, fans can access Taco Bell through a mobile app, desktop on Ta.co and delivery through its partnership with Grubhub. Taco Bell became the first QSR to launch a mobile app in U.S. restaurants for both drive-thru and dining orders. In 2016, it was named as one of Fast Company’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in the World.
