Meet #ForFortCollins Ambassadors Berenice & Cesar of The Taco Stop

Meet our new #ForFortCollins Ambassadors, Berenice Longoria & César Lopez, owners of The Taco Stop. Berenice & César will help share resources with the community on how to support your favorite Fort Collins businesses. Join us each week as we spotlight a new Ambassador.

Q: What do you/your business need the most to succeed right now?
During this time, our business needs to continue establishing our presence on this side of town and really push our own delivery and dine in now that we have opened our doors. The delivery services have been great in helping us get our name out around town, but they are really cutting into our profits so we
are trying to get away from that. We need to stay strong as a company and hopefully when we open our doors we will be able to see more guest joining us.

Q: What is your favorite business in Fort Collins?
Snack attack!! The owners are amazing and they do so so much for our community. 

Be sure to follow The Taco Stop's Ambassador journey on Facebook & Instagram.
