On the Menu
The menu at Taco Bell has always been reliable but never predictable. Classics like the Burrito Supreme and Crunchy Taco have stood the test of time, all while the company ushers in one innovative menu item after the next. The Crunchwrap Supreme, for instance, was so successful as a limited-time offer in 2005 that it became a permanent menu item by January 2006. Taco Bell also stole headlines with its creation of Doritos Locos Tacos in 2012, and its breakfast and FourthMeal menus ensure there's something tasty waiting no matter the time of day.
By the Numbers
Taco Bell's exponential growth over the years has helped the company accrue some impressive numbers. For instance, it serves more than 40 million customers every week at over 6,000 restaurants around the United States. More staggering, perhaps, are Taco Bell's annual totals: the restaurant doles out more than one billion burritos and two billion tacos every year, enough to wrap around the globe numerous times or feed a single Andre the Giant.
