Taco Bell, located at 1101 S. Buckner Tarsney Road, celebrated its grand opening with a ribbon cutting on February 25th. Members of the Grain Valley Partnership gathered to celebrate with Taco Bell leadership and enjoy lunch.
DRG, Diversified Restaurant Group, owns 61 restaurants in the greater Kansas City area, including the Grain Valley location.
Melissa Lindsey, Vice President of Operations for DRG, said the company is excited to have expanded in Grain Valley.
“As a company, we’re always looking for areas to expand our footprint and add value to those communities,” Lindsey said.
One of the challenges for any restaurant is attracting and retaining staff, and Taco Bell is no different.
Lindsey said the restaurant is always seeking quality employees to serve their customers. Taco Bell offers a number of benefits for employees, including health benefits, scholarships for employees pursuing additional education, and career mentoring.
“We’re in the people business. We just happen to sell tacos,” Lindsey said.
“We’re going to continue to grow in the area, and expand our footprint If we find good people, we will bring them on and find the perfect place for them.”
