Sweet Cup in Garden Grove, Calif. was almost a Boba shop, until owner Kenny Tran got some inside advice from his brother: “Why don’t you just add an ice cream item in there? Rolled ice cream is the newest craze here in Orange County.” That’s the moment when the rolled ice cream taco at Sweet Cup was born. Calling it “an artistic process,” Tran says customers love being able to see their sweet treats get made. Changing Taco Tuesday as we know it, Sweet Cup only serves the unique desserts on Tuesdays — Taco Tuesdays. With lots of flavors, edible gold, and cones shaped into hardshell tacos, Sweet Cup brings a creative twist to a dinner staple.

This Twitter user is planning a whole trip around checking out the Ice Cream Taco.

Sweet Cup recently introduced this treat on “Taco Tuesday” and it’s blown up.

Here's a way to add some color to your diet! 🌮🍦🌈 #sweetcupoc

Several comments left on Sweet Cups Facebook page say they’ve waited in line for hours and then not ended up with the taco because of demand. Yikes.

If you can get there in time, they do look pretty tasty. Especially their blue Monsters Inc. taco ice cream and the Strawberry Cheesecake one.

When Spanish Speaking Customers Started Showing Up, This Owner Did The Right Thing

SOUTHERN FOODWAYS / VIMEO

“Work as if it were your own store, even if it isn’t.” Tolo Martinez.

Cliff Collins, owner of Cliff’s Meat Market in Carrboro, North Carolina, understands the value of communication. The butcher shop has been around for more than 30 years, and during that time, it has gained quite a loyal customer base. However, as Cliff’s Meat Market’s customer base expanded, so too did the variety of the customer’s backgrounds.

Around 20 years ago, the butcher shop began to get more and more customers who needed assistance in Spanish. Cliff, not fluent at all, aside from the word “problemo,” decided his customers, no matter their first language, deserved quality customer service. That’s when Cliff Collins employed Tolo Martinez, 37, a man who embodies the spirit of hard work. While the job has given Martinez a chance to provide for his family, he understands the professional limitations he faces every day, and he speaks candidly about the realities he faces as a “successful” immigrant living in the U.S.
