Love Mexican food? Del Taco is a “Mexican fast food lovers” dream. It’s a competitor to Taco Bell in the western United States and is highly recommend as it is a chain of North American fast-food restaurants specializing in Mexican-style offerings, as well as American foods such as burgers, fries, and shakes. Del Taco is led by President Shirlene Lopez, and is headquartered in the city of Lake Forest, California. Their primary rival is Taco Bell.
Originally named Casa Del Taco (House of the Taco), the first Del Taco restaurant was founded in Yermo, California in 1964 by Ed Hackbarth. On the restaurant’s first official day of business, Del Taco made $169. In 1964, Hackbarth partnered with real estate broker David Jameson.
Success of the first restaurant led to three in Barstow and a fourth restaurant in Corona (the first Del Taco with a drive-thru window). Dick Naugle, who installed the kitchen equipment in the Corona store, was impressed by the design and joined Hackbarth and Jameson in the fledgling business. In 1966, the trio founded Red-E-Food Systems, Inc. with the idea of franchising the Casa Del Taco brand. That same year, the original Del Taco sun logo was created and in 1967, Del Taco introduced their famous bean and cheese burrito with green or red sauce to their menu. Before long, the restaurants were being founded throughout Southern California.
Working at Del Taco will give you great experience in the fast food industry and will teach you many skills and abilities that you will be able to use later in life, no matter what industry you work in because first and foremost, they teach you how to be an effective “team player.”
