50 Years of Tacos, Burritos, Burgers and Fries
Ed Hackbarth opened the first Del Taco in Barstow, California, in 1964. With a menu of 19 cent tacos, tostadas, fries and 24 cent cheeseburgers, Del Taco brought in $169 in sales on its first day of business. By the 1970s, the company was thriving with 50 restaurants operating by 1977, and by 1978, the company grew to a total of 100 restaurants nationwide. Based on increased customer demand, in 1988, Del Taco began keeping many locations open 24 hours a day. By 2008, Del Taco nearly doubled in size with the opening of its 500th restaurant. In 2013, Del Taco launched a rebranding effort, the "UnFreshing Believable" advertising campaign, and its Buck & Under Menu to communicate the lengths the company goes to in order to deliver fresh quality, made-to-order menu items at an incredible value.

How do you close feedback loops across teams and activities delivering complex multi-tier, cloud, container, serverless, and/or API-based services?
