With Cinco de Mayo right around the corner, it’s time for parades, Mexican food, and of course, ice cold margaritas! Although often confused with Mexico’s day of Independence (actually September 16), Cinco de Mayo is celebrated more widely in the United States than it is in Mexico.
The day itself commemorates the unlikely victory of Mexican troops over French invaders at the Battle of Puebla in 1862. Mexican-American citizens in the United States, as well as American Civil War troops began celebrating the date with speeches, bull fights, banquets, and more to commemorate the spirit of the victory.
Today, we still celebrate Cinco de Mayo with traditional Mexican foods, Mexican folk dancing, mariachi music, parades, parties, drinking, and more in most major cities across the United States. To get your business ready for this big, nationwide event, you'll need to make sure you have enough food supplies and the right equipment to serve your customers and keep up with demand!
