What is the story behind your business' name?

Once upon a time, a dreamer had a passion for food and a desire to be their own boss. After years of working in the food industry, they finally came up with the perfect idea: a Mexican food truck in Ames, Iowa, a college town. I knew there was a gap in the market for authentic, high-quality Mexican street food, I Spent months researching recipes and perfecting their menu, and finally, they were ready to take the leap and start their own business. It was a challenging journey. I faced many obstacles along the way, including finding the right location, obtaining the necessary permits and licenses, and securing funding. But, with hard work and perseverance, I was able to turn their dream into a reality. Finally, the day arrived when the food truck was ready to hit the streets. I was thrilled to see the crowds of people lining up to try their delicious Mexican street food. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive, and it was clear that I had hit the mark with their unique menu and high-quality ingredients. Carlos Quesadillas Mexican food truck is a beloved fixture in the Ames community. It's a place where people can come together to enjoy delicious food and good company, and I couldn't be happier to bring a little bit of Mexico to Ames and share their passion for food with the community.
