SAN ANTONIO — An enterprising company in Texas is bringing ice-cold margaritas to doorsteps in San Antonio.
La Gloria launched its first La Gloria Margarita home delivery truck Thursday. A bright pink truck will take taco kits, chips and salsa and margaritas to anywhere 3 miles from the restaurant.
The COVID-19 pandemic has kept from dine in restaurants and shifted the focus to food delivery. Chef Johnny Hernandez hopes that his service will not only provide a way to social distance a bit longer but will help his business recover from this change.
"Our Margarita Trucks are another fun and creative way to adapt to the ever-changing business landscape. Today, safety is top of mind for everyone, and many of our customers are simply not ready to dine out; however, we know that doesn’t mean they don’t crave one of our famous margaritas. Delivering to our customers’ homes does not only make enjoying our signature margaritas safer and more convenient, but this new avenue of serving our customers also helps to rebuild our business in turn allowing us to hire back more members of our team,” Hernandez told KSAT.
Additional trucks will be added to the fleet in June, according to San Antonio Magazine.
All orders must be placed online in advance and the company can also fulfill next-day orders. Currently there is a $40 minimum purchase and a $5 delivery charge.
Unfortunately, in-person orders are not allowed.
