Glen William Bell Jr. (September 3, 1923 – January 16, 2010) was an American
entrepreneur who founded the Taco Bell chain of restaurants.

Born in Lynwood, California, Glen Bell graduated from San Bernardino High
School in 1941. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps as a cook during World
War II. After the Marines he started his first hot dog stand 'Bell's
Drive-In', in San Bernardino in 1948. In 1952, he sold the hot dog stand
and built a second location selling hot dogs and hamburgers. He soon started
selling tacos at a taco stand named Taco-Tia at 19 cents each from a side
window. Between 1954 and 1955, he opened three Taco Tias in the San
Bernardino area, eventually selling those restaurants and opening four El
Tacos with a partner in the Long Beach area.

In 1962, he went solo and sold the El Tacos to his partner and opened his
first Taco Bell. Bell franchised his restaurant in 1964. His company grew
rapidly, and the 868-restaurant chain was later sold to PepsiCo in 1978 for
$125 million in stock.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
