After the world’s first Taco Bell was saved by preservationists in 2015, it seems the chain has taken a liking to architecture. Last year, under the flags #savetacobell and “Save Taco Bell Numero Uno,” T-Bell moved the building from Downey, California, to its headquarters in Irvine after it paraded through Orange and Los Angeles Counties on a truck. This year, it announced its first shipping container restaurant. Let’s just hope there will be space for bathrooms!
