5. Contrary to what some may think, there are actually no Taco Bell’s in Mexico!

While Taco Bell has made its way overseas to countries such as Spain, the UK, Japan, Korea, and The Philippines, there still (to date at least) are zero locations in Mexico. That may surprise some, given the nature of the cuisine itself; however, they have tried opening locations numerous times there, but have yet to be successful from doing so.

Don’t fret or be concerned though because Taco Bell is officially found in 31 countries across the globe, including Guatemala where there are already 68 locations there alone. Pretty interesting and cool if you ask me, right?

Another pretty fun and cool fact related to this one:

  • According to some studies done in 2014, California, Texas, and Florida ranked the top three for the most Taco Bell locations
    • It just so happens that at the time, those three states also had some of the highest density of Hispanic populations as well
  • Unfortunately, Vermont sits in last for the fewest Taco Bell locations (at the time at least).

If you live in Mexico or have family there and would like to see some T-Bell action there, maybe write to them and see what they can do! The worst that can happen is them saying “no”, so if you ask me, it’s definitely worth the shot, am I right?
