A Honduran street vendor has gone viral thanks to his snazzy sense of style:
Dario Welcome (yes, Welcome) makes a living selling horchata on the streets of Honduras. But unlike most street vendors, he likes to wear a suit and dress shoes to work.
Welcome became a viral sensation after RTV Honduras, a local news outlet, highlighted his story in a Facebook video. The video has over 2.6 million views, and has been shared over 77,000 times to date.
"I see myself as a business owner, so obviously I have to dress like one," Welcome tells RTV Honduras. "It also gets me a lot of attention."
"I have a theory: You can have the best product in the world, but if the way you present yourself is bad, you'll turn away a lot of people. So that's why I started dressing like this."
According to Welcome, he's only been in the horchata street vending business for two weeks but he's already getting a lot of clientele.
Because of financial hardship, Welcome was forced to drop out of college. But he hopes to one day to make enough money to pay off his student loans and go back to school.
When asked by RTV if he'd be open to people helping him out, he responded, "If people want to help me out with something, help me out with my studies and buy an horchata. You'll like it and you'll come back for more!"
