Michael Roper, President and CEO of Taco Bueno, Will Be Featured on the Hit Series, Friday, April 28
Michael Roper, president and CEO of Taco Bueno – the iconic award-winning quality Tex-Mex chain, will be featured on the hit series “Undercover Boss,” Friday, April 28, 2017 (8:00-9:00 p.m., ET/PT; 7:00-8:00 p.m., CT) on the CBS Television Network.
“From working with our front line team members who deliver the best they can every day, to working operationally in the warehouse, the experience was something I never thought I’d have the opportunity to do,” Roper said. “I’ll be honest, though. I did crash and burn when tasked with operating a forklift in the warehouse. But the overall experience is one that I have been able to take back to the boardroom with a fresh perspective that only comes when you can truly go undercover.”
He continued, “It comes as no surprise that I think our tacos are the best, but it’s the people behind the curtain who make this company Bueno. Everyone deserves Bueno.”
