Hospitality Syracuse Inc. was founded in 1988 when the Lobdell family acquired several Taco Bell restaurants in Central NY.
Hospitality Syracuse has grown in several New York State markets over the years, including Albany, Ithaca, Rochester, Utica, and Watertown. With 50+ restaurants, we continue to grow and develop new sites each year.
Fun Fact: Our Hospitality Syracuse guests devoured 11,167,381 tacos in 2021!
The passion our people show every day to our guests, and each other is what makes Hospitality Syracuse the successful company it is today.
“My favorite part of my job is working with my amazing team and seeing our hard work pay off with happy customers and good numbers. After earning a trip to Hawaii for being in the top 100 RGM’s in the country, I felt more confident in myself, knowing that my restaurant was one of the best under my leadership!”
Hospitality Syracuse, Inc. has a long history of supporting our local Boys & Girls Clubs, especially their Teen programs. Through financial donations, career support, and of course, donating their favorite Taco Bell food, HRG continues to encourage its members to graduate high school and pursue their dreams. Since 2000, HRG has raised and donated over $100,000 to our Local Boys and Girls Clubs.
COVID-19 ESSENTIAL WORKER SUPPORT
Supporting our front-line workers when the Coronavirus started was a huge priority for us. We packed up meals in a safe, easy to transport, sealed box, and fed over 1,000 essential workers in our communities.
LIVE MÁS SCHOLARSHIP
The Live Más Scholarship is not based on academic or athletic achievements, but individuals passions. Recipients are chosen based on their passion, work history, and future goals. Hospitality Syracuse, Inc. has had several Live Más Scholarship winners over the years including Elisabeth Dona and Hafsa Mohammed for the 2020-2021 academic year.
HOSPITALITY RESTAURANT GROUP SCHOLARSHIP

TACO BELL FOUNDATION
At the Taco Bell Foundation, no cause is more important than supporting our youth’s passions and dreams. Since 1992, the Taco Bell Foundation has reached more than 4 million young people across the country. The Taco Bell Foundation has awarded more than $95 million in grants and scholarships focused on education and career readiness.
Our people first, food second culture extends to our local communities in which we rely on to do business every day. Supporting our local sports teams is just one way that we do this. From little leagues to Syracuse University Basketball, from the smallest fans to the tallest, we are proud to help support their programs and help build their dreams.
