Congrats to our Signature Restaurants!


At Border Foods, we pride ourselves on securing many signature restaurant awards each year! Signature Restaurants are locations that deliver best-in-class service and have the people, culture and fundamentals in place to serve fast, craveable food from open to close!

If you’re leading or working at a Signature Restaurant, that means you’re at the helm of a premier Taco Bell.

How to become a Signature Restaurant:

  • Top 20% of restaurants with the lowest customer dissatisfaction rate
  • DT Speed 3:30 or less
  • Pass 100% of the CORE food safety audits
  • Display positive year-over-year transaction growth
  • Assure 90% or more of your restaurant staff are fully trained in their role
