Laredo Taco Company Announces “Made Right Here Road Trip” Video Series
IRVING, Texas (September 28, 2021) – Laredo Taco Company is launching a new six-part video series “Made Right Here Road Trip”, with host Mando Rayo from United Tacos of America on its website, and social media channels (Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, and TikTok). To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, the new series trailer was released today, and the first episode featuring the birthplace of Laredo Taco Company will be released on October 5th, to celebrate National Taco Day. Taco Journalist, Author, and Texas Native, Rayo will take viewers on a Texas-sized taco-tour, taste-testing his way through his personal Laredo Taco Company® favorites in some of the most iconic cities across the Lone Star State. Rayo teams up with local city advocates and personalities to discuss the Hispanic culture influences and heritage, including local businesses, food, music, and art, while showcasing the rich history between Texas and Mexico.
“It's a real honor to have your culture represented in the ‘Made Right Here Road Trip’ series,” said Rayo. We connect with Latinos across Texas and give them the opportunity to share their own stories in their own ways. We also highlight my personal favorites from Laredo Taco Company. You’re sure to be craving breakfast tacos or carnitas by the end of each episode.”
Laredo Taco Company is set to release a new episode every “Taco Tuesday” throughout the month of October and into November. As Rayo hits the road to eat delicious tacos, he connects with local Latino city ambassadors, and together, they highlight the importance of the Hispanic community. Cities featured include Laredo, Corpus Christi, Houston, Brownsville, San Antonio, and Dallas.
“The Made Right Here Series is a collaboration highlighting customers, team members, and, most importantly, the communities where we live and work,” said Brad Williams, 7‑Eleven Senior Vice President of Corporate Operations and Restaurant Platforms. “We begin everything with our customers in mind, and they inspire us every day. At Laredo Taco Company, we respect the taco and authentic Mexican recipes and flavors, representing generations of Hispanic traditions and culture.”
