Neighbors in Humble, Texas, showed up in a big way this week after a woman asked for help in bringing customers to her father’s food truck business.
When his daughter Giselle learned what happened, she decided to take matters into her own hands.
“I wouldn’t normally do this, but my dad’s taco truck business is struggling, he only sold $6 today,” she wrote on Twitter, according to CNN.
“If you could retweet, I would appreciate you so much!!” she continued.
Like many small businesses, Aviles’ food truck suffered due to the pandemic and would sometimes earn just $60, $40, or $20 after being open for hours at a time.
“When he said $6, it was kind of like are you kidding me?” Giselle recalled. “So, I just said well we have nothing to lose and I decided to make the tweet that day.”
Thanks to his daughter, the post garnered 2,000 tweets by Sunday night and when Elias arrived at his truck Monday morning, a line of customers were waiting to buy his delicious tacos.
