The Rise of the Taco Truck

The Rise of the Taco Truck
March 6, 2017
Much like the taco itself, pinpointing the exact date of the first taco truck is a bit difficult due to the transient nature of the business and the lack of records. The person credited with opening the first taco truck is a man named Raul Martinez. In 1974 Martinez converted an old ice cream truck into a mobile taco making station and parked it outside of a Los Angeles bar. His idea was a huge success and after only six months of working out of his truck he was able to open a restaurant, King Taco, which he later turned into a multi-million dollar chain.
