IRVING, Texas — (PRNewswire) — Laredo Taco Company is launching a new six-part video series “Made Right Here Road Trip”, with host Mando Rayo from United Tacos of America, on its website, and social media channels.


To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, the new series trailer was released today, and the first episode featuring the birthplace of Laredo Taco Company will be released on October 5, to celebrate National Taco Day.

Taco journalist, author, and Texas native, Rayo will take viewers on a Texas-sized taco tour, taste-testing his way through his personal Laredo Taco Company favorites in some of the most iconic cities across the Lone Star State. Rayo teams up with local city advocates and personalities to discuss the Hispanic culture influences and heritage, including local businesses, food, music, and art while showcasing the rich history between Texas and Mexico.

“It’s a real honor to have your culture represented in the ‘Made Right Here Road Trip’ series,” said Rayo. “We connect with Latinos across Texas and give them the opportunity to share their own stories in their own ways. We also highlight my personal favorites from Laredo Taco Company. You’re sure to be craving breakfast tacos or carnitas by the end of each episode.”
