About Slidin’ Thru – (To be read in an awesomely dramatic movie narrator voice)
Slidin’ Thru was created by one man with an idea, a dream and an appetite for something different in the Las Vegas community – The Future of Fast Food™. Slidin’ Thru was officially founded on March 13, 2010 by Ricardo Guerrero (Ric) to show hungry citizens of Las Vegas that mini burgs can have a fun and powerful taste. After attending culinary school, Guerrero quickly realized he would rather find a way to not only cook, but watch as people savored the food he was preparing and thus the Slidin’ Thru slider truck was born. As the brand expanded, Slidin’ Thru began releasing swag that fans can’t get enough of, including limited edition shirt designs and more. This November, Slidin’ Thru opens its first official “Drive Thru” restaurant location on Durango and Centennial Parkway with a second restaurant set to open in early 2012. The Slidin’ Thru team also runs the popular Vegas StrEATs event in Downtown Las Vegas, as well as Movies in the Park. For more information, visit www.slidinthru.com.
