We would highly recommend them to anyone looking to buy, sell or finance a franchise business,” said Rodney Walker, President of Bells and Birds, Inc.

Several years ago, I helped them buy these restaurants, and they have operated successfully in this market ever since. The Unbridled team looks forward to continuing to be customers and supporters of these Taco Bell locations in our hometown of Louisville, KY. We wish Rodney and his team – as well as Judd & Erica – many blessings as they continue to grow their respective restaurant businesses throughout the region with such an awesome brand as Taco Bell,” said Rick Ormsby, Managing Director.
As a condition of this closing, Unbridled Capital will make a charitable contribution to the Taco Bell Foundation. We want to give back to the employees who are so important to the success of the Taco Bell brand. We want to be a blessing because we’ve been blessed.
