Here to Serve

We take great pride in serving our employees by giving them tools to help them achieve their goals, and providing them with recognition along the way.

We offer leadership and business training through Tacala Leadership University (TLU), company funded GED certification and the opportunity to apply for college and vocational school scholarships.


My name is Archie Pemberton, and I have been leading Tacala’s Oneida, Tennessee location for 7 years.

I started my Tacala career as a Restaurant Leader and with hard work and dedication, I am now a Market Training Leader (MTL). MTL is a very rewarding job, because I have the opportunity to make an impact on the future leaders of Tacala. Seeing the look on someone’s face when it all clicks and celebrating their success makes all the hard work worth it!

I believe your growth with Tacala is totally up to you. If you are committed and work hard, Tacala will give you the opportunities and the tools to achieve your goals. At Tacala we are a family, and our motto is Here to Serve. We are not just making tacos; we are investing in someone’s future!

My name is Bailey Weber, and I have been with Tacala for almost 2 years. I started my Taco Bell journey as a Team Member in Montevallo, Alabama. I have worked hard and focused on replicating the good example that was set for me by my Restaurant Leaders and Area Coaches. Their examples and coaching helped me earn my new role as the Assistant Restaurant Leader at our new Greystone location. I’m proud to now be the one setting the example for our future leaders and leading our Greystone team to strive for excellent product quality and customer service every day!

Leaders and Coaches also have the opportunity to learn communication, customer service and business skills. TLU is one of the many ways we invest in our teams and set them up for success.


Our recognition culture is designed to reward excellence and encourage our teams and leaders to perform their best, strive to advance their career and consistently deliver positive results. Rewards and recognition come in many forms including bonuses, shout outs, fun events, trophies, pizza parties, company paid vacations and more.

Team Tacala Scholarships

In 2014, Tacala initiated the Team Tacala Scholarship fund to provide team members who were graduating High School or enrolled in college with access to scholarship support removing a financial barrier to post-secondary education. Funded by the company as well as proceeds from the Team Tacala Scholarships Golf Experience, Team Tacala Charities has awarded over 450 scholarships.

We are proud to support and encourage the future thinkers, doers and leaders of our country.
