About Pacific Bells

Pacific Bells began in 1989 when two businessmen, Tom Cook and Dennis January, decided to go into partnership. Dennis had just opened his first Taco Bell restaurant in Tualatin, Oregon. Tom had begun his Taco Bell career years before as a fry cook and, at the time, held the position of Franchise Consultant with Taco Bell Corporation working with franchisees like Dennis. Tom was passionate about Taco Bell and wanted to become a franchisee. It was at this time Dennis and Tom agreed to work together on building a franchise. Since that first restaurant, the company has expanded its operations into Buffalo Wild Wings in addition to several other concepts across the country, operating over three hundred and fifteen locations in several states with a view toward continued growth.
