Woman's Tweet Saves Father's Food Truck After Selling Only $6 Worth of Tacos

September 18, 2020

Giselle Aviles was worried about her father's food truck.

His truck, Taqueria El Torito, had only made $6 on what should have been a busy Saturday, so Giselle turned to social media, reports Fox News.

She posted on Twitter, "Hey Twitter!! I wouldn’t normally do this, but my dad’s taco truck business is struggling, he only sold $6 today. If you could retweet, I would appreciate you so much!!”

That following Monday was like night and day.

By the time it opened at 8 a.m., there was a LINE of people waiting to get tacos, some of them who had been waiting since 6 that morning! Giselle told KHOU 11, "There were so many people, and [my dad] was kind of shocked because he didn’t think there would be a turn around that quickly."

Giselle's father even had to CLOSE the truck early due to running out of ingredients. He went from selling $6 worth of tacos all day Saturday to completely selling out on Monday!

Giselle continued, "It feels amazing because I was just trying to just help him.  Just being able to do something that’s going to give him business right now, that’s going to get him known.”
