This Fresno Teen Is Using The Internet To Get People To Buy Pan Dulce From This Viejito

We adore young people that honor their elders by showing them love, advocating for their lives, and more importantly helping them with their hustle. That’s exactly what we are seeing out of Fresno today with a young man asking people to support his favorite street vendor and his bread.

Fresno resident Javier Amaro is paying it forward by giving a local Mexican bread vendor a huge shout out.

Amaro, a bodybuilding enthusiast, posted on his social media platforms that local residents should purchase Mexican bread from this vendor. Not only does Amaro say they’re delicious but they are incredibly inexpensive.

“FRESNO, CA AREA!! this older man sells really good Mexican bread they are $1 a bag, I purchased $15 to help him, shows me a lot that even if you are older and not that fit or healthy to work, when you enjoy doing something that you love to do, age or time doesn’t matter. PLEASE help him out he is located in 2034 N. ANGUS or give him a call 559-515-1271”

The post, which went live on Facebook on June 4, has been shared thousands of times.

Does this vendor know his phone number is floating around the internet? We’re certain his phone is blowing up nonstop. Who can resist $1 pan dulces?

Fans are showing support for the elderly gentlemen and those who have tried his goods are sending their praise.

“We always brought from him when we lived on Brown Ave., ” Angie G. Aguilar wrote on Facebook. “Sweetest man and his pan is really good! I’ll call him for sure. And share your post.”

@_lizzylizz wrote, “Dude I always use to buy bread off of him really nice sweet guy and the bread is definitely worth it.”

This is not the first time someone has posted a message in order to give their favorite vendor much-needed business.

Last year, a then 18-year-old  Jacqueline “Jackie” Garza tweeted that her father’s bakery would close due to lack of business. So, she asked people to come and help, and they did. Thanks to her social media outreach, the panaderia was able to stay in business.
