Six-Figure Fast Food: Taco Bell’s Push To Attract Top Talent

Looking for a six figure salary? Head to your nearest Taco Bell.

The fast-food chain announced it will pay some restaurant managers a one hundred thousand dollar salary. Current salaries for general managers are between fifty and eighty thousand a year. The new model will be tested in select locations in the midwest and northeast.

In addition to higher paychecks the company is also testing a new role for employees who want leadership experience but not a management position. The company says it’s a way to keep good workers in a labor market that is becoming more competitive.

And it’s not the only company trying to stay on top of the game. Major retailers, Costco and Walmart are also offering a higher salary for management positions. But it’s not all about the money. In an effort to keep people coming through the doors, Taco Bell also announced a plan to make all customer packaging recyclable and provide more options for vegetarians.

But if that’s still not enough for you, consider In-n-Out. Managers there make one hundred and sixty thousand a year.
