This Teen Asked Twitter To Help Keep Her Dad’s Cafe Open & Now Business Is Booming

If you’re on Twitter then you most likely understand the power of Twitter. Countless times users have asked Twitter for help to find a random boy, help uncover some tea or better yet keep a family owned bakery open for business.

Jackie Garza, 18, put out a plea to Twitter to support her dad Trinidad Garza’s bakery La Casa Bakery & Cafe in Houston, Texas. She shared a video of her dad hand making pan dulce asking people to retweet to drive up business. “He been thinking about closing but I can’t let that happen,” she tweeted.

Hurricane Harvey took a massive toll on business, which is what led Jackie’s dad to consider shutting down. Jackie showed her followers that her dad doesn’t mess around in the kitchen by sharing multiple different dishes La Casa Bakery & Cafe has to offer.

To say that Twitter pulled through with Jackie’s request is an understatement. The video of her dad has over 1.2 million views and her tweet has over 60,000 retweets. One of those retweets is from the famous singer, Paulina Rubio.

When her tweet blew up Jackie, who is studying business, quickly made the bakery its own Instagram and Twitter.
