Live Más

Live Más is more than just a tagline; it's a way of life at Taco Bell. Más is doing more and expecting more. Más is giving more. Más is living life and getting a little more out of every day. That's the spirit that drove Glen Bell when he started Taco Bell in 1962, and that spirit lives at the heart of our fast food franchise organization today. We passionately serve food and create experiences that help people get a little more out of their day (and night).

Great Franchisees Bring Our Brands to Life

21 years ago Lina Alvarado was a successful real estate developer working on a shopping center. Then, she built her first Taco Bell. It performed so well in its first year that Linda decide to focus on Franchising. Today she owns and operates more than 130 Taco Bell, Pizza Hut, KFC and Long John Silver's restaurants in four states. We have immediate opportunities available for qualified franchisees.

Training And Support

Taco Bell believes that quality training and support are the foundation to building your multi-unit Mexican restaurant franchise business. As you enter the Taco Bell Mexican food franchise system, you will have four primary areas of emphasis:

  1. Establishing key contacts
  2. Building your restaurant
  3. Building your team
  4. Setting up a strong start for the restaurant franchise

Taco Bell provides training for franchisees and restaurant managers, including brand education as well as various levels of Mexican restaurant franchise training. Lasting, six to eight weeks and consisting of web-based, on-the-job and classroom training, the program is taught by a certified Taco Bell training instructor in a certified Taco Bell training restaurant. This education should be completed at least six weeks prior to the planned opening of your Mexican food franchise.*

Taco Bell believes that ongoing support is also necessary for your Mexican restaurant franchise, so we provide coaching, recognition and continuous backing for our franchisees. This team also coordinates product and procedure rollouts regularly during the course of the year. Taco Bell Corporate support includes:

  • Recommendations on how to conduct a Grand Opening while being reimbursed up to $5,000 of documented expenses
  • An annual convention featuring a full-day of presentations from Taco Bell Brand Leadership, Keynote Addresses, and many choices for continuing professional education opportunities for your Mexican franchise
  • Regional association membership - meetings focus more closely on topics such as operations and team training
  • Regular Town Hall Calls held by the Taco Bell Leadership Team to keep Taco Bell franchisees in the know with multi-unit restaurant franchise information while giving them the opportunity to ask questions on important front line issues
  • A wide range of optional continuing education courses through Yum! University

* Taco Bell franchisees are responsible for all costs incurred for travel and lodging of the management team. Some training is mandatory and failure to complete could result in non-issuance of franchise agreement.
