We had the good fortune of connecting with Alejandro Rodriguez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alejandro, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
We wanted to build something of our own. We were tired of being employed by people who under appreciated us, under values and under used. 

What should our readers know about your business?
We sell tacos made with love and pride! We are proud of bringing our food to Longmont and happy that the community in town has received us with open arms. Edward and I started our business from money we had in our savings account. We purchased a $900 camper trailer and we turned it into a mobile taco trailer. It was relatively easy mainly because we both have the drive to make something for ourselves, our mantra is “make it work!” We have learned that growing our business from a small operation is the way to go, we went from a taco trailer to a brick and mortar and we will make it work to keep growing onto a bigger location and eventually have several locations.

Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
We would get food from Luu`s Asian Cuisine, Grab a beer at Left Hand, go shopping at Maker General.

Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
All the people who have impacted my life positively and lift me up to do better. My mom, friends and my husband!
