There is a longer history involved in the creation of Taco Bell.

The founder of the Taco Bell company was Glen Bell.  In 1946 Bell opened a hot dog stand in San Bernardino, CA that he called Bell Drive-In.  He was just 23 years old when this location started.

That was just the start of his entrepreneurial career in the business industry.  A few years later he sold that location and then later opened a taco stand known as Taco-Tia.  He built that stand up and started several other taco locations including El Taco.

He sold off El Tacos to his partner and opened the first Taco Bell in 1962.  In 1964 Bell franchised his first Taco Bell location to a former Los Angeles police officer.  Within 3 years 100 new Taco Bell restaurants had opened.  Three years later they went public, and then in 1978 Pepsico puchased Taco Bell form Glen Bell.

There are currently well over 6,000 Taco Bell locations worldwide employing over 175,000 people.

Fourth Meal

Fourth Meal is a concept/promotion that Taco Bell came out with to advertise their late night menu.  Since most Taco Bell locations are either open 24 hours or very late into the night, they get a lot of late night customers.  Fourth Meal was created to cater to these individuals.  “You’re out.  You’re hungry.  You’re doing fourthmeal.”

First Meal

After Fourth Meal became such a hit, Taco Bell used the same concept when launching their breakfast menu.  The headlining food during this meal is what Taco Bell refers to as the A.M. Crunchwrap.  Also, you can get a special Mountain Dew drink that includes Orange Juice.  They call this Mtn Dew A.M.
