To say Ashley Bautista is a Taco Bell fan is an understatement. “I love Taco Bell,” she says. “I love the food. I love the people. I really love my job.” So, it comes as no surprise that when the brand’s Nacho Fries launched with an Illuminati-style national campaign in 2017, Ashley was all about it. In fact, she was so passionate about Taco Bell’s commercial she decided to get a “Belluminati” tattoo on her forearm.
“The company knows I’m committed to Taco Bell for life,” Ashley says, noting her tattoo just further proves her point. “Restaurant General Manager isn’t going to be my last stop.”
Today, Ashley is RGM at DRG’s San Ramon Cantina – the only Taco Bell in the world with built-in X-box gaming consoles. According to Ashley, the cantina provides more of a dining experience than an average Taco Bell. Plus, the location offers boozy freezes among other alcoholic drinks. The restaurant’s high volume, diversity, team atmosphere, and commitment to top-notch guest service keeps Ashley coming to work with a smile each day.
“DRG is a company that’s focused on the people,” she says. “It’s not just the work experience I’m looking for. We’re all family here.”
