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. Education is an important component of this initiative. 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 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!

Favorite Taco Bell Menu Item: Taco Salad with Steak

If you could design a sauce packet, what would it say? Taco, Blast and Sauce-tastic!

Hey! I’m Trey Dillard, but everyone calls me Freddy. I’m currently the Restaurant Director for our Alabaster and Calera, Alabama locations. I love being a part of the Tacala Team because Tacala believes in me. They believe in all of their people! I started my taco career in 2016 as a Team Member, and because I was surrounded by great leaders who believed in me and wanted to see me grow, I was able to learn the business and work my way up. Tacala is committed to helping me achieve my goals, and that’s why I am certain I will achieve my goal of becoming an Area Coach!

Fun Fact: Tacala will always be a special place for me and my family, because through Tacala I met my fabulous wife, Paige!

Favorite Taco Bell Menu Item: Soft Tacos

If you could design a sauce packet, what would it say? Mild? More like Wild!

My name is Cassandra England, and I joined the Tacala family 10 years ago as a drive-thru cashier. I love my job as a Market Training Leader, because I get to pay it forward by coaching team members from the Tennessee Market and helping them grow into successful leaders. Tacala has been there for me every step of the way, and now I have the opportunity to do the same for our future leaders.

My favorite Taco Bell menu item: Chicken Quesadilla

If I could design a sauce packet, what would it say? “I’m the taco warrior!”

I am Michelle Holley, and I am 23 year veteran of Taco Bell. I have worked with Taco Bell Corporate and other franchisees, but the past few years at Tacala have been my favorite! I joined Tacala as a Restaurant Leader in Alex City, Alabama, and I have recently been promoted to Restaurant Director overseeing our Chelsea, Alabama location as well. Tacala has given me the piece I was missing to my leadership puzzle, and I now understand what it means to be a leader and put my team first. It is my passion to train, develop and build confidence in others, the same way Tacala has helped me grow into a positive leader.

Favorite Menu Item: Chicken Bowl

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.
