Glen Bell

Glen William Bell (born c. 1923) is the founder of Taco Bell. He served in the US Marine Corps during World War II. Mr. Bell left military life in 1946, and started his first hot dog stand in San Bernardino. In 1952, he sold his first hot dog stand for more money and built his second. Shortly thereafter, he started selling 19 cent tacos out of a side window. He opened three Taco Tias in the San Bernardino area. He later sold those restaurants and opened four El Tacos with a new partner. In 1962, he decided to go solo and sold the El Tacos to his partner and opened his first Taco Bell. Bell franchised his restaurant in 1964. His company grew very well and was later sold to PepsiCo in 1978. He later married and had five children.
