Taco Bell was originally established by Glen Bell in the state of California, United States of America. It rapidly grew all over the US as it was affordable and scrumptious and taco bell menu with prices became everyone’s favorite. The victory of the eatery made the way for expanding it to other countries which proved to be prosperous and from there, the ladder of success started for Taco Bell.
Even though Taco Bell is very famous now and seemed to be in every part of the world, it had its fair share of bad experiences in terms of expanding to other countries. Many times, the brand was forced to pull back its outlets all together from a country or close some in some parts due to various issues.

A local restaurant in Australia named as Taco Bell’s Casa had been operating since the 1970s so when Taco Bell opened, the owner sued it, claiming that the public would be misguided by the similar names. Taco Bell later opened in 1997 and 1998 in Sydney and New South Wales but was pulled out 2005.
Canada has a number of Taco Bell restaurants and the first one was opened in Ontario. It is now present in seven provinces.
Taco Bell opened in United Kingdom in 1986 and this was the first European country for it. The first city to see Taco Bell was London and later it spread to other areas though they were closed due to one problem or the other. According to the reports, there are nine Taco Bell restaurants in the UK.
In 2008, Taco Bell was introduced in Dubai and it was able to open up in three more places before it was completely pulled out of UAE.
