Everyone who knows me knows that I love tacos. It's indisputable. The sun rises in the east… and I love tacos. So it's with great sadness that I mark the passing of Mr. Glen Bell, founder of the Taco Bell chain.
Glen W. Bell Jr., the innovator and entrepreneur who tapped an unsated hunger for Mexican fare as Americans discovered fast food, creating Taco Tia, El Taco and in 1962 his signature Taco Bell, has died. He was 86.
Thank you, Mr. Bell, for helping to bring tacos to the masses (and for all those late nights that your drive thru sat open in college!) Thank you.
