In 1977, former President, Larry Durrett opened his first quick-service restaurant, Taco Plaza, in Jacksonville, Texas. Due to the success of this one store, he then opened four more restaurants over a span of 6 years in the following cities: Lufkin, Henderson, Longview, and Athens. In 1983, PepsiCo recognized that Taco Bell could be a dominant chain in Texas and the United States but for the presence of Taco Plaza, so Mr. Durrett decided to convert his locations to Taco Bell and kept building and buying locations along the way.

Today, Southern Multifoods, Inc. owns and operates 105 units, all but one being Taco Bells or at least having a Taco Bell component in them. Southern Multifoods, Inc. currently operates: one Long Johns Silver’s/A&W, five Taco Bell/Long John Silver’s, two Kentucky Fried Chicken/Taco Bell, and ninety-seven Taco Bells.

And I am here to tell you without a doubt that of those two, good people are by far the hardest to find and keep. The restaurant general manager is the top of the pyramid at Southern Multifoods, Inc. The company’s number one leader with the ASL’s about a half a second behind."


As I reflect back over the last forty-two years of our family business, I am grateful for my father’s leadership and vision for SMI. We will continue putting people before profits by practicing servant leadership. We all can expect SMI to grow organically, maintain the best assets on the block, and operate selflessly. We believe the customer’s experience will never exceed the team member’s experience and our customers will always be our lifeline. Thank you for your inter
