Taco Bell Plans 50k new hires by end of summer

Over the next 5 years Taco Bell has ambitious plans to hire nearly 100,000 people but this summer will also see a major hiring push.

Hiring kicks into full swing this month, with the company and its franchisees expecting to fill 3,500 newly created jobs this summer alone. In addition, as the company heads into its busiest season of the year, it will seek to fill 50,000 additional positions across the system by the end of the summer.

Connecting the right job with the right candidate is not always easy. Taco Bell is looking to make this process even better for current and potential employees through its newly launched partnership with Roadtrip Nation. Today also marks the debut of Taco Bell's first ever 30 under 30 list. Together, this industry-first partnership and round-up of top talent highlights the career paths within Taco Bell, making it easier for current and future employees to match their job needs and goals with Taco Bell's varied career opportunities. 

"Last year we announced our commitment to hire 100,000 new team members in our system by 2022," said Brian Niccol, Chief Executive Officer at Taco Bell. "We are now taking that commitment to the next level with recruiting and employment programs to help us and our franchisees invest in our employees, and their experience, in significant ways."

Whether people are looking for their first job, a summer stint or one that can provide education and leadership development opportunities, Taco Bell is helping to remove obstacles to finding and landing the right job.

"Our system's employees are central to creating exceptional experiences for the 46 million customers we serve each week," said Frank Tucker, Chief People Officer at Taco Bell. "Taco Bell and our franchisees are committed to building workplaces where team members want to work and grow. That starts by showcasing the diverse pathways in the Taco Bell system and celebrating employees' achievements, which we're doing by shining a spotlight on some of Taco Bell's most impressive young talent."
