Students Helping Local Business’s One Breakfast Taco at a Time

Contributed by Maddie Drilling

SAN MARCOS, Texas – Every Monday through Thursday members of Students in Free Enterprise sell Lolita’s breakfast tacos in the quad at Texas State University. They sell 200 tacos everyday for $2 a piece.

Lolita’s Café is a popular breakfast restaurant in San Marcos. SIFE wanted to increase their revenues by selling the tacos in multiple locations, so this is what they did. They recently bought a freezer, fridge, and two grills for Lolita’s shop. SIFE student Jared Trimm says,” I love the smiles on people’s faces when they receive their breakfast taco”. This project has been very successful, and it is all because of the hard working students in SIFE.
