making it one of the fastest growing retailers in the world.

Glen Bell was 23 when he left the Marine Corps. in 1946.
 World War II was over, and the economy was switching to peacetime pursuits. 
In five years, business would be booming and fast food along with it.
Glen came home to the sleepy agricultural town of San Bernardino , certain
 that families would be in the market for the recreational activities that 
disappeared during the war. He first thought of a miniature golf course
, but after facing his financial situation, he went to work on something more
 the size of his pocketbook, a hot dog stand. Bell 's Drive-In was the
 name of that first stand, and Glen learned the business as he went.
 His next unit would only be large enough for one person to operate 
and strictly take-out
In 1952, he sold the first stand, and began to build a perfected version. 
The menu would be hamburgers and hot dogs. As he began building his
 second, the McDonald brothers started their first unit, in a strange 
stroke of coincidence, also in San Bernardino . Glen became increasingly
 interested in the idea of alternative menu items. He was an avid Mexican 
food take-out customer, and as such, was well aware of the hang-ups in 
ordering tacos to go from a full-service restaurant. "If you wanted a dozen," 
he recalls, "you were in for a wait. They stuffed them first, quickly fried 
them and stuck them together with a toothpick. I thought they were 
delicious, but something had to be done about the method of preparation."
"My plan for experimenting with tacos," he says, "was to obtain a location
 in a Mexican neighborhood. That way, if tacos were successful, potential 
competitors would write it off to the location and assume that the idea 
wouldn't sell anywhere else."So Glen searched out a good location in 
the right part of town on a busy main street. He began by selling
 various hot dogs, including a chili dog. He formulated the chili dog's sauce 
himself and it would later become our taco sauce. At the same time, he 
researched tacos. The shells had to be prepared quickly and efficiently. 
They had to be fried first and stuffed later. He had seen a crude version of 
a deep fry basket for tortillas made from stainless steel.
"It was very experimental, but I went ahead and had someone make one
 for me. We hadn't thought about using wire yet, so we came up with a heavy 
stainless version which stayed very hot and fried one at a time." The idea 
for the first commercially fried shells would be picked up by the manufacturers
 of packaged shells now widely available in markets.
Glen experimented until he was satisfied with the taco ingredients and 
proportions. The next issue was how to introduce them. There wasn't
 room for new items, or to diversify the menus in the little stands we built then,
 so I decided to sell 19 cent tacos from a little window off to the side," 
he says. "I'll never forget the first taco customer because naturally, I was 
really concerned about his reaction. He was dressed in a suit, and as
 he bit into the taco the juice ran down his sleeve and dripped on his tie.
 I thought, 'we've lost this one,' but he came back, amazingly enough, 
and said, 'That was good, I'll take another one!' "
Bank financing for the fledging fast food industry was still out of the question.
 So with tacos selling well, and Glen ready to open a second stand in Barstow
 , and between 1954 and 1955 , he built three Taco Tias in San Bernardino ,
Redlands and Riverside . Glenn was into expansion but when his partner John
 Gallardi was not in favor of expanding the Taco Tia's into Los Angeles , 
Glenn sold him his interest in the restaurants. In 1956, he was 28 when he
 was making $50,000 a year each for three restaurants
. And so he had his very first franchise of Taco Tia sold to two football
 heroes in Los Angeles .
So when Glenn was on his own again and strapped, he really didn't want more 
partners, although he liked the guys, but the recession worried him. So 
he formed a partnership with four of them and called the restaurants El Taco 
which turned out to be gold mines. El Taco did well and expanded but eventually 
Glenn sold El Taco to his partners and built the first Taco Bell in Downey 
California in 1962.

It was clearly a new era for Glen Bell. No longer was it a case of providing the 
energy determination and belief in an idea until it took off . Now, it was a
 matter of running a large company. "Once we got up to 100 restaurants,
 it changed for me. I hated the day when we had to start numbering the units.
 The business issues became financial, we had really won the war as far as
 I was concerned. The stock market began to smile on fast food, and we
 were on the road to success."
"I had started Taco Bell in 1962 with 40 shares, each worth $100. It was
 entirely held by the family. In 1969, in order to go public, we had to split
 that stock 30,000 to 1. It just shows that we had no idea how big things 
would get." In 1975, Glen tendered his resignation as Chairman of the Board. 
Three years later, he sold Taco Bell's 868 units, to PepsiCo, Inc. The deal 
was some six months in the making and ended with Glen Bell a major 
PepsiCo shareholder and millions richer. In 1977 the first international 
unit opens in Guam , and in 1984 Taco Bell replaces its original mission-style 
restaurants. Drive-thru windows are also installed in 1988 Taco Bell
 launched the value initiative, lowering the price of new items and introduced 
Free Drink Refills. It also began the three-tier pricing strategy which remained 
the core of the value offering through 1994.
In 1991 the Taco Bell establishes the Express business to achieve its 
vision of providing Taco Bell food "wherever and whenever people are hungry.
" Taco Bell 's compact carts, kiosks and in-line units begin appearing in 
airports, gas stations, retail stores, cinemas, stadiums, schools, etc.
In 1998 Taco Bell, widely recognized for introducing the exciting taste
 of Tacos, Burritos, Fajitas, and Wraps, introduces yet another distinctly 
different product into mainstream America , The Gordita.
In April of 1999 Taco Bell received The Grande EFFIE, one of the most 
prestigious awards in the advertising industry. Later that year Chalupas 
and Grande Meals are added to Taco Bell's zesty menu. In May of 2000, 
Taco Bell celebrates its three-year association with Ameri
ca's Promise – The Alliance for Youth, has resulted in a nearly $6 million 
donation to the Boys & Girls Clubs of America (B&GCA), and the opening 
of 51 new TEEN Supreme Centers at Boys & Girls Clubs nationwide.
