Martha Avila and Michelle Garcia
Martha Avila and her daughter Michelle Garcia begin each day at 4:30 a.m. In a commercial kitchen, this mother-daughter team prepares breakfast burritos for the hungry customers on their morning routes. Mobile food vending has provided Martha the means to support a household, while helping Michelle afford the ever-increasing cost of college. Their loyal customers include retirement home residents, medical staff, and construction workers. By focusing on their customers, these two entrepreneurs have been able to consistently grow their business since they began vending three years ago.
