Susan Trillo is Taco Cabana of New Mexico's (ABQ) hard working, dedicated and most experienced general manager. She runs the operations at our San Mateo location and we are so happy she is part of our team.
She began her very successful journey in the restaurant business at the age of 16 in El Paso Texas. It did not take Susan long to move up to management and by the age of 19 he was managing her own store location. She continued to excel and grow and remained with the company for the next 13 years.
In 1998 she made the move to Albuquerque and began to work for Taco Cabana ABQ. Our Montgomery/Wyoming location was Susan's first restaurant. While at that location, the store flourished and had such a great reputation with everyone from the Health Inspector to our customers. Her competitive nature and love of the restaurant business made her an important part of Taco Cabana's success.
Susan is most proud of being able to balance her work and personal life. Her four kids and eleven grandchildren are her greatest joy. They have always come first but the Dallas Cowboys are very close behind. That's right, she is a huge Dallas Cowboys fan as well as a Harley Davidson enthusiast.
There was never any question Susan would be a success. Her personal beliefs on management and people are so positive and genuine it is no surprise people learn and gravitate towards her constantly. All our current general managers have spent some time under her management and our customers always have a better day after talking with her and of course, enjoying our fresh, homemade food. Susan takes so much pride in the consistency, flavors and presentation of our food. Her favorite item menu is the Mexican Platter.
A loving mother and grandmother, patient and supportive manager, self motivated and hard working, and loyal and honest person are just a few things that come to mind when it comes to Susan. As Taco Cabana ABQ continues to grow and reach more people, there is no question so much of that can be attributed to Susan Trillo. And we cannot thank her enough.
