Looking back at Mark King's legacy at Taco Bell


Taco Bell CEO Mark King, who just announced he will retire at the end of this year, led the brand through unquestionably the most challenging time in the restaurant industry in recent memory.

And he didn’t seem to miss a beat.

Since coming on board in August 2019, King held a steady hand through the pandemic, through an abruptly changed consumer set, and through historic unemployment levels, global uncertainties, and record-setting inflation. Taco Bell is stronger than it’s ever been, and it is strongly positioned to continue that momentum for the foreseeable future.
