History of Taco Bell

Taco Bell was founded by Glen Bell on March, 21 in the year 1962. At first, he opened a hot dog drive-thru in San Bernardino, California in the year 1948. He was 25 at that time. Bell observed that there was a restaurant located across the street which had customers lined up to buy their hard-shelled tacos. That restaurant was named Mitla Cafe and it served Mexican food.

He requested the owners to allow him to review their recipe and from there he learned how to make tacos. After that, he opened a stall named Taco Tia in the year 1951-52 and sold tacos in it. With the passage of time, he expanded his business and started operating a number of El Taco Restaurants which were located in California.
