Like many small business owners, Elias Aviles of Humble, Texas, has been struggling to keep things going during these unusual times.
Elias owns and operates a food truck called Taqueria El Torito — and recently admitted to his daughter, Giselle, that he made only $6 after a long day of work.
Giselle was heartbroken to hear this news — and did something about it. She got on Twitter and sent out a message, asking people to support her dad.
Thanks to social media, news of her request spread throughout the community. And when Elias opened for business the next day at 8 a.m., there was already a line of customers waiting, with some who had been waiting as early as 6 a.m.
Giselle said she appreciates the support for her dad’s business and took an extra step online, creating an Instagram page so even more customers can find his truck.
