RGM Gayle Grigsby on Empowerment

If there’s anyone who knows the ins and outs of quick service restaurants (QSR), it’s Gayle Grigsby. An on–again, off–again employee since 1997, Gayle says there’s no other brand in the world like Taco Bell.  “From when I was young, I knew I wanted to be in the restaurant industry,” Gayle says. “My dad always said, ‘Things change in the world, but one thing remains: People have to eat.’” With…

And where there’s a will, there’s a way. Growing up in a small coal mining town in Montana, she didn’t have access to a local Taco Bell. Between her junior and senior years in high school, however, Lisha decided…

RGM Barb Bunney on Teamwork

When Barb Bunney was hired to work at Taco Bell six years ago, she was scared and nervous.  “I was coming straight out of the bakery and deli space, and I didn’t know what to expect,” Barb says, reflecting on the transition. “But Border Foods had patience and my managers let me learn and ask questions.
