Fernando Rodriguez is very excited to move into a new space with all of the other Latin American food vendors. As one of the few food carts with years of experience, he relies on help from his wife and two daughters (when they aren't in school!) to support the operations. Fernando has worked hard to build his business into a success and set a name for himself in the industry. A toluqueño de corazon, Fernando appreciates this opportunity to make something that encompasses what el sabor mexicano means, from his family to yours.
