    Hi I work for the local taco bells in my town They are owned by R3 food service. I have talked to the owner on and off for the last year and We are trying to up date the taco bells here. All he says is that some of his other ones look great and They have lots of color and he wants that up here. He keeps telling me that he has pictures and never will he bring them so I can see to try to make these one look like his others. I am asking for you help Do any of you work for taco bell and could you take some pics of them so I can get a ideas on ours. I Hope One of you work for this company Please let me know thank you all and I hope you have a great Season this year.

    I warm the ground beef for tacos with a curling iron before slapping it inside the tortilla!

    I do three in my area. My expierance with them is that they dont care about the appearance, the less the manager spends on landscaping, the bigger bonus they get. The ones i service have ugly red mulch everywhere and mulch volcanos around every tree. The landscaping always gets damaged by the drunk people that go there for the "fourth meal" lol.

    Yeah - I bid on them yearly and they are looking for the Bottom dollar bids. I never have won a pizza hut, taco Smell, or KFC.

    I don't have any Taco Bells, but I think lava rock, yucca (adam's needle) and aborvates would look good. I think one of the taco bells around here has some daylillies, that would give you some color.

    Doesnt this mean that you did win if you never got the account, and they were cheapskates?

    I would try things like Gold Globes, Clethra, Ninebark (purple leaf ones). Like someone else said daylillies and arborvitae. I'd never plant Yucca anywhere. Go to Johnsons out near Erie. They have a nice selection.

    Thank you all for your inputs It seems they are all planted pretty much the same. the owner wants like 10 k worth of work done for nothing that is what sucks about commerical accounts hope you all have a great year.
