According to the History Channel, Cinco de Mayo, is a holiday that celebrates the date of the Mexican army's May 5, 1862, victory over France at the Battle of Puebla during the Franco-Mexican War. Cinco de Mayo is not Mexican Independence Day, a popular misconception. Instead, it commemorates a single battle. The battle lasted from daybreak to early evening, and when the French finally retreated, they had lost nearly 500 soldiers. Cinco de Mayo is widely interpreted as celebrating Mexican culture and heritage in the United States, particularly in areas with substantial Mexican-American populations.
We thought a great way to kick in Cinco de Mayo was to play our interviews with the Margaritas Mexican Restaurant franchise opportunity. Over the years, we had two chances to interview Margaritas Mexican Grill. Our first interview was with Bob Hofmeister, President and COO of Margaritas. Next, we will play a clip of our interview with John Pelletier, Founder and CEO of Margaritas.
According to the Margaritas website, for over 40 years, Margaritas has built a cult following by staying focused and not chasing trends. Margaritas brings the spirit of Mexico to the U.S. through our scratch-made Mexican food, warm hospitality, celebratory environment, and of course - our world-famous Margaritas! While their decor and technology have changed over the decades - the big idea has always been the same. Deliver great Mexican food, fun, and the world's best Marg!
