Meet Jacob, an American expat who makes a whopping 1,000 RMB every day delivering California-style burritos to high school students and businessmen. He reportedly got the idea from his wife, who’s from Fuzhou.
When I was in Beijing years ago, I took my wife to a Mexican restaurant. She loved it very much and she said that Chinese people would definitely like this. So I’m like “I can do this myself!” And I just started to make them in my own home.”
Jacob was also influenced by American street food carts. With the help of his wife, he bought a used electric car to make deliveries. He posts the time and place that he is going to stop everyday online via WeChat and Weibo , where he also promotes his “Cali Fresh Burritos.”
