I understand during its earlier years, our office did around a couple dozen or so of the original Taco Bell locations... the drawings are somewhere in our huge storage room!

Thanks,

Which office do you work for? Store #1 is still standing in Downey.

The office was known as Neil Stanton Palmer in those days. I'll need to do some research to find out which locations they were responsible for.

Thanks,
