Taco Bell Is No Longer The Whole Enchilada

What started off as a dream for a man working a hot dog stand turned into one of the most popular “Mexican” fast-food chains in America. Glen Bell opened the first Taco Bell in 1962, after watching the Mexican restaurant next to his stand make way more money than him. Bell’s first restaurant was actually named Taco Tia, basing his foods off of the neighboring Mexican stands.

As we all know, the name changed to Taco Bell, and the restaurant quickly expanded. Unfortunately, they made cutbacks in locations as well as some pretty drastic menu changes.
