Taco Bell is Hiring an Associate Copywriter Near Irvine, CA

Taco Bell is instituting a COVID-19 vaccination mandate for health and safety reasons. Effective January 3, 2022, Taco Bell requires that corporate employees are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of employment, subject to reasonable accommodation as required by law.

Who is Taco Bell?

Taco Bell Corp., a subsidiary of Yum! Brands, Inc. (NYSE: YUM), is the world’s largest Mexican-inspired quick service restaurant (QSR) brand. From breakfast to late night, Taco Bell serves customizable tacos, burritos and quesadillas, among other craveable choices like the Crunchwrap Supreme® and Nacho Fries. Taco Bell offers a wide variety of plant-based menu items and was the first QSR brand to offer American Vegetarian Association (AVA)-certified menu items. 

Taco Bell and its more than 350 franchise organizations proudly serve over 42 million customers each week through over 7,000 restaurants, as well as through its mobile and desktop touchpoints and via delivery ordering services. Internationally, Taco Bell has over 600 restaurants, with plans to add 2,000 more restaurants in the next decade. Much of Taco Bell’s everlasting appeal with its fans and legendary connection in lifestyle culture are rooted in cutting-edge, buzzy marketing campaigns. From helicoptering 10,000 Doritos Locos Tacos to residents of remote Bethel, Alaska, to selling out “The Bell Hotel”—a Taco Bell-themed resort hotel—in less than two minutes, the brand continues to push industry boundaries. 

Taco Bell is equally focused on creating a positive impact on the world in fresh ways through Food, People and Planet initiatives. One example is through supporting the Taco Bell Foundation, which encourages restaurant team members and fans to pursue their educational passions through programs such as the Live Más Scholarship. According to Harris Poll, Taco Bell has been named America’s Best Mexican-Food Restaurant for two back-to-back years and has been named “Most Innovative Company” by Fast Company and topped Entrepreneur’s “Franchise 500” list for two years in a row.
