Chances are if you live in the United States, you’ve probably been inside a Taco Bell. Even if you’ve spent every day for the past 10 years eating chalupas and crunch wrap supremes, there are still some things about the fast food franchise that you probably didn’t know. Here, we present our list of 10 things you didn’t know about Taco Bell. Check out part one below, and stay tuned for part two, coming soon!

Number Ten: There Are No Taco Bells in Mexico. Despite the fact that Taco Bells sells primarily Mexican food (well, bastardized Mexican food), there are absolutely no Taco Bells in Mexico! However, that’s not for lack of trying. Taco Bell has tried twice to introduce the chain into Mexico, but it failed both times. They even failed when they marketed the food as “American.”

Number Nine: They Want $2 Bills Back. In fact, Taco Bell once petitioned the United States government to bring back the archaic two dollar bill.

Number Eight: They Have Sold Billions of Tacos. Specifically, since the release of the Doritos Locos tacos – you know, the tacos with a Dorito-flavored crunchy taco shell – Taco Bell has sold more than one billion of them. That’s a lot of cool ranch Doritos!

Number Seven: The Doritos Locos Tacos Are Responsible for Creating 30,000 Jobs. It’s true! Thanks to the success of the Doritos Locos tacos, Taco Bell was able to add more than 30,000 jobs to the company. That’s a lot of people who have a chip to thank for their annual income.

Number Six: They Put a Target in the Ocean. Taco Bell placed a target in the ocean for the landing of the Mir space station. The space station crashed down to earth in 2001, and Taco Bell put a target there and released a statement that everyone in the United States would get free tacos if the station landed on the target! Specifically, the core of the space station had to hit the floating target in order for the offer of free tacos to be valid. Stay tuned for part two of our list of 10 things you didn’t know about Taco Bell, coming soon!
