About Pacific Bells


Pacific Bells was formed in 1986 by Dennis and Anna January.  They opened their first store in Tualatin Oregon, a store that is still open to this day!  A few years later, in 1989, Tom Cook partnered with Dennis and Anna with the goal to build and operate multiple Taco Bell restaurants in the Pacific Northwest.  The next few years the company grew to around 20 stores. Then, in 1995, Pacific Bells acquired 53 stores in Ohio from the Taco Bell Corporation.  The next wave of significant Pacific Bells growth started in 2011 with an acquisition of 11 stores in the Seattle WA DMA.  2015 was another milestone in Pacific Bells history as the company welcomed a strategic growth partner, Partner’s Group, in addition to acquiring another 25 Taco Bell stores in Wisconsin.  With Partner’s Group support, the pace of both organic growth and acquisition activity increased.  Pacific Bells acquired 40 Taco Bell stores in 2016, which were located mostly in Mississippi and Tennessee.  Then, in late 2017, 56 Taco Bell stores were acquired in central California.  As of May 2018, Pacific Bells operates over 200 stores located in 8 states (Alabama, California, Mississippi, Ohio, Oregon, Tennessee, Washington, and Wisconsin).   We are also a major franchisee of Buffalo Wild Wings, a business that started in 2007 and has grown to over 60 stores located in California, the Pacific Northwest, and Mid-West.

Our goal is to be a World Class organization.  We strive to be a leader in growth and operational excellence while fostering a culture that makes us an employer of choice.
