“I do not have the ability to advertise and to market and do what Main Street Hub does. It’s impossible, because it goes out to the masses and it goes out daily. What else can you ask for?”

Social Media, With a Splash of Soul
For over two decades, Sky’s Gourmet Tacos has satisfied the palates of their customers throughout Southern California by preparing the finest quality Mexican food, with a splash of soul. According to founder, Barbara Burrell, social media has taken her business to the top by continuing to build her brand by making memories, telling stories and maintaining relationships with customers. For her, social media is the “creme de la creme” because it adds value and takes her product out where everyone can be introduced to it.
More than 1,000 new ‘Likes’ on Facebook
Since coming on board with Main Street Hub in May of 2013, a dedicated team of writers have connected Sky’s with over 385,000 people on Facebook, giving them exposure that they couldn’t get anywhere else.
12x more customers reached than the industry average
On her sign up date, the vision Barbra had for her social media presence was to get more people to know and love Sky’s. With a customer reach that is 12x greater than the industry average, we think it’s safe to say that Sky’s is doing a great job of exceeding that goal.
7x more Yelp traffic than competitors
Every year, Sky’s Yelp page sees thousands of visits and hundreds of reviews. We’ve given Barbra the peace of mind to know that her online reputation is under control, so she can focus on creating the delicious tacos that so many people in SoCal are raving about.
