Cause of Death:

Death Summary: Glen Bell died of undisclosed reasons on January 17, 2010.

Who was Glen Bell : Bell was a businessman who founded the fast food chain Taco Bell.

In 1948 Bell started his first hot dog stand called Bell's Drive-In in San Bernardino. In 1952 Bell sold the business and used the that money to build a second stand that sold both hot dogs and hamburgers. Shortly after opening, the shop began selling 19 cent tacos. They were a huge hit.

Between 1954 and 1955 Bell opened three Taco Tias in the Los Angeles area, eventually selling those and opening four El Tacos. In 1962 Bell sold his half of El Tacos to his partner and opened his first Taco Bell. Just two years later Bell franchised Taco Bell and the company grew very quickly. In 1978 Taco Bell was sold to PepsiCo for $125 million in stock.

    Taco Bell visits won’t be the same. My love is for 7 layer burrito and cinnamon twists. And a cheese rollup to share between my two babies–Gracie and Max, our Shih Tzu puppies! Collected many movie tie-in products, my favorite being the four glasses from 1983’s Star Trek III: The Search For Spock… You will be missed, sir. Rest in the arms of peace…

  5. STRTRKN Says:

    I also should say I am a fat useless slob that has no life. Though I do have the first skidmark briefs I soiled after my first taco.

    I just ate some of that taco bell 99 cent menu and now I can barely get of the toilet. It’s like giving birth to an African child. You want it out but don’t want to keep it.
