Jario and Suyapa Motino are a couple with many dreams, and one of those dreams has been realized with the opening of their Food Truck — Taqueria Suyapa, serving Mexican food and recipes from their homeland of Honduras. The food truck is based in the parking lot of Auto-Net on 271st Street as it heads into Tea. The Motinos say they have had steady business since opening earlier this summer, and plan to stay open until November. Not only that, but Jario says they have already made arrangements to return to the same location next year, hopefully in April.
Jario is a carpenter by trade, and when not at the food truck, he returns to carpentry. Suyapa studied business in Honduras, and in the off-season works at a retail store in Sioux Falls. They have lived in Sioux Falls for the past seven years, and have one child.
The dream for a food truck all started when Jario was building a food truck for someone else. Suyapa said in the course of that process they came up with the idea to start a food truck of their own.
“Since we both like to cook, we decided to save money to build our own,” she said.
