Daughter Helps Dads Struggling Food Truck With One Tweet
Taco ’bout heartwarming!
The daughter of a struggling Texas taco truck owner tweeted that her hardworking dad only earned $6 one day amid a major pandemic-fueled slump in sales — sending scores of customers flocking to the business in an incredible outpouring of support.
“I wouldn’t normally do this, but my dad’s taco truck business is struggling, he only sold $6 today,” Giselle Aviles, 21, tweeted of her father Elias’ eatery, Taqueria El Torito in Atascocita.
“If you could retweet, I would appreciate you so much!!”
Within hours, her post had raked in thousands of retweets — and by the next morning, dozens of people had lined up outside the food cart, khou.com reported.
There was such a massive flood of hungry customers, the taco truck was forced to close an hour early because it ran out of food.
Aviles said her dad’s business has been struggling during the COVID-19 outbreak, sometimes making as little as $20 or $40 a day. But when she heard the Mexican food truck’s earnings were so stunningly low, she got hotter than a jalapeño.
“When he said $6, it was kind of like are you kidding me?” Aviles told CNN. “So, I just said well we have nothing to lose and I decided to make the tweet that day.”
