Taco Bell was founded by Glen Bell, an entrepreneur who first opened a hot dog stand call Bell’s Drive-In in San Bernardino, California, in 1948. Bell watched long lines of customers at a restaurant called the Mitla Café, located across the street, which became famous among residents for its hard-shelled tacos. Bell attempted to reverse-engineer the recipe, and eventually the owners allowed him to see how the tacos were made. He took what he learned and opened a new stand in 1951. The name underwent several changes from Taco-Tia through El Taco, before settling on Taco Bell.
Glen Bell opened the first Taco Bell in 1962 in Downey, California. The original location was a 400 square foot building about the size of a two car garage, and was built with Mission-style arches that covered a small walk-up window that served the original menu items of tostados, burritos, frijoles, chiliburgers, and tacos, all for 19 cents. This first restaurant closed in 1986; but, was saved from demolition and moved 45 miles away to the Taco Bell Corporate Office in Irvine, California, and is known as “Taco Bell Numero Uno”.
It is interesting information concerning the color scheme for Taco Bell’s logo. The purple stands for grace, excellence, and strength. The pink represents youthfulness and the yellow depicts happiness and optimism.
Just recently, Taco Bell opened a store at 2054 Highway 45 Bypass in Trenton. The local manager, Cameron, invites you to stop by this newest location and enjoy dining with them or inquire how he and his staff can assist you and/or your business with any food items for special events.
