Why Americans Love Taco Bell

Codice da incorporare
  • Pubblicato il 19 apr 2019
  • Taco Bell is huge in the United States. It has been ranked as one of the top five fast-food chains in the country, based on sales. Despite the brand's popularity, Taco Bell has been dealing with upheaval in its C-suite.
    With more than 6,500 locations across the country, Taco Bell is one of the top fast-food chains in the U.S. It is not necessarily known for its quality, but a recent Harris Poll anointed it "America's favorite Mexican restaurant."
    Much of Taco Bell's recent innovation was initiated under the watch of former CEO, Brian Niccol. But in 2018, Niccol left the chain to helm one of Taco Bell's biggest competitors - Chipotle. He has since moved Chipotle's headquarters into Taco Bell's backyard. Some say recent turnover in top management could mean trouble for Taco Bell in the years ahead.

      El Pollo Loco by far. Much healthier than any other fast food restaurant. I won't move to a city that doesn't have one.

    True. It caused me to quit Mcdonald's in the 90's for it's healthy food LONG before everyone was concerned with healthy food. Great food choices as well.

    I prefer Taco Bell over Chipotle. Chipotle has had too many health issues and their food is too salty. Even though Taco Bell is fake Mexican food, I prefer it. They have also been renovating existing stores or completely demolishing and rebuilding locations which is great. Baja Fresh is on its way out, so they will not be much competition in the future.

    as a latina that always brings my cousins to taco bell whenever theyre in the US, they all usually love it! Cheap street tacos are a much better deal however but I wish taco bells would exist there, my cousins always have to wait until they visit.

    It's so interesting how a lot of people, like the narrator of this video put the emphasis on the BELL, like tacoBELL while I grew up putting the emphasis on the taco, like TACObell. Which do you put the emphasis on?

    Being that Taco Bell was my first real job in High School PLEASE DONT EAT THERE, the meat is equivalent to dog food and not even grilled, its heated in plastic bags in a tank of boiling water similiar to how a deep frier cooks fries in oil and the beans are not even beans, its powder and hot water mixed together into this sludge that gets left on the line all day. Go get some real mexican food at a place that doesnt have a drive through like Chronic Taco

    Taco Bell basically just sells Dorito burgers, it's not genuinely Mexican at all. In my family, we've vowed to NEVER eat there and go somewhere else or just prepare Mexican food ourselves.
    Why would Mexicans buy totally ruined versions of THEIR OWN FOOD???
