This family changed industries during the pandemic

CHICAGO -- The Rodriguez family used to make a living as photographers, but once the COVID-19 pandemic hit, they decided to redirect their trade to selling Mexican sandwiches.

Eduardo, Vinny, and Diana Rodriguez own ER studio. Eduardo Rodriguez, the father of the clan, has been in the photography business for the last 40 years. When the pandemic effectively shut down their photography business, they decided to launch their torta selling company, Torti-Text.

The Rodriquez family uses their Instagram page to handle orders and offer delivery Monday through Friday.

Diana Rodriguez said that even though times are tough, it is important to stick together during the COVID-19 pandemic.


"Everything is going to pass soon," Diana Rodriguez said.
