RaspadoXpress began in 2001 with a cart outside of El Tigre Market on Laurel Canyon and Osborne boulevard. Our family came to Los Angeles as immigrants not only to follow the American Dream, but also to survive and put food on the table. When we first arrived in LA our reality was sink or swim. At the time, we faced an uphill battle with everything imaginable. The idea for "RaspadoXpress" began when my father, a simple street vendor, was selling raspados in Pacoima.
