Taco Titan dies

Posted by / Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

There are a few people that are greatly affected by the death of Taco Bell founder Glen W. Bell, Jr., who passed away Monday, January 18 at the age of 86. Bell left an impact on the restaurant world as one of the leading founders of fast food, particularly Mexican fast food. If you don’t think so, check the numbers.

More than 36.8 million consumers eat Taco Bell each week. Within the United States alone, more than 2 billion tacos and 1 billion burritos are served each year.

Good thing Taco Bell has a fresco menu. Though the drive-thru diet is questionable, it does offer healthier foods for those on the run. Jared may have some competition.

When almost a third of the US population is obese, perhaps instead of eating a taco in honor of Bell, try following Bell’s “Recipes for Success.”

Of course, if you’re strapped for cash it may just be all about the Roosevelts.
