WEST COLUMBIA — Brandon Valdez put in his time working at a fast-food restaurant and a grocery store while saving up money to buy his own food truck.

He bought the truck three years ago, and after remodeling it on his own, the 19-year-old is running a successful business, but that’s just another step toward his future. Valdez is also going through barber college in Houston.
