Her father's food truck made just $6 in one day -- so she made a plea on Twitter to help him get more customers

When a young woman in Texas learned that her dad's small business was struggling during the pandemic, she made a heartwarming plea on Twitter asking people to help.

"I wouldn't normally do this, but my dad's taco truck business is struggling, he only sold $6 today," Giselle Aviles, 21, wrote in a tweet on Saturday about her father's taco truck, Taqueria El Torito.

When the pandemic hit, the food truck's sales began to plummet, Aviles said.

Because the two have a close father-daughter relationship, Aviles would often ask him about his sales for the day.

Like Aviles' father, many small business owners throughout the country continue to struggle through the pandemic.

She told her father that he should start to prepare for many new customers when the truck opened the next day.

When he arrived at his food truck at 8 a. m. on Monday, a line of customers already awaited him-- some who had been waiting as early as 6 a. m. , Aviles said.

She said she appreciates the support for her dad's business and has since made an Instagram page for more customers to find his truck.

On Tuesday, the food truck had already seen another busy day of customers.
