Yvonne Castaneda was born and raised in El Paso. After navigating the regulatory red tape of paperwork and inspections, Yvonne became a licensed mobile food vendor and began vending out of her retrofitted-van. Her vending business—named Destiny’s Ice Cream and Snacks after her daughter—is how she supports her family. Over the past five years, her vending business has steadily grown one customer at a time. She has worked hard to develop an attractive menu, educate herself about entrepreneurship, study food handling, and keep her van in good condition.
