Almost all of us can agree on the merits of a hearty taco, so make something with these ingredients.


Turner was an officer in the United States Air Force who served during the Korean War and an aspiring entrepreneur; he was stationed at FE Warren AFB, where he began digging into his entrepreneurial spirit. Initially, Turner wanted to find a physical location for a taco stand. He went to James Woodson to find a location to lease, and Woodson redirected him to Harold W. Holmes, who converted one of his campers into a 12x30 trailer in seven days.

In 1973, the first physical brick-and-mortar, in-the-ground Taco John's was built at Carey Ave and W 23rd St in Cheyenne, Wyoming, including a drive-thru. The original Taco John's building was moved to S Greeley Hwy and I-80, where it was demolished, but there is still a Taco John's at that location today. (Source: en.wikipedia.org)

Lastly, I wish the coupons and deals didn't correspond to the launch of new products, but rather my purchasing habits. Why offer me a $1 off a steak burrito when all I ever purchase is kids meals and a crunchy chicken combo. The same goes with deserts. Why offer me a free sugar covered potato ole when all I purchase are Churros; they're fab by the way! (Source: apps.apple.com)
