In Downey, California, retired Marine Glen Bell saw an opportunity to share his much loved Mexican cuisine in a market that was crowded with Burgers and Hot Dogs. Glen experimented and explored with his favourite flavours, and came up with an offer that balanced Mexican products with Californian ingredients, opening the first ever Taco Bell in 1962, serving what his customers referred to as "tay-kohs". Over the past 56 years' Taco Bell has grown to be the world's largest Mexican Inspired food brand, with over 7,000 restaurants in the US and over 400 restaurants across other areas of the globe. Each and every day inspiration is taken from Glen and his decision to create something new and different, and his drive to share that with as many people as possible. Today in the UK, the Taco Bell brand is growing with major thanks to legions of dedicated Taco Fans.
