Taco Titan: The Glen Bell Story
Meet the 'Bell' in Taco Bell. At 16, Glen Bell rode the rails across America looking for work, he built an innovative restaurant near a drive-in owned by brothers named McDonald, who borrowed his ideas. His early partners were entertainer Phil Crosby and L A Rams football stars, he was a mentor to employees who later founded Wienerschnitzel and Del Taco. Glen expanded Taco Bell nation-wide, then sold it for $130 million and today at Bell Gardens, he uses wealth to benefit children, runs his own train, and battles disability with the same determination he used to build Taco Bell.
