Taco Bell Would Be Yummy Alone

Investors want more value unlocked, and the Mexican chain can stand alone.

It was only a matter of time before Taco Bell merged its quesadilla and chalupa offerings into the new "Quesalupa," which it unveiled during the Super Bowl. It was a no-brainer to combine the overwhelmingly cheesy goodness of a quesadilla with the chalupa shell's perfect crunchiness.

Now the Mexican-inspired fast-food chain should consider another inevitability: An eventual spinoff from its parent company, Yum! Brands.
