Danny Trejo Named Keynote Speaker at Bellflower’s BRAVO Awards Ceremony

Actor / Activist / Restaurateur

The City of Bellflower is pleased to share that Danny Trejo will serve as special Keynote Speaker at the 26th Annual BRAVO Awards on Thursday, February 6, 2020 at 11:00 a.m. at the Bristol Civic Auditorium.

Trejo, an actor with a prolific career in the entertainment industry with 400 credits to his name, has starred in dozens of films, including Desperado, Heat, From Dusk Till Dawn, Con Air, Spy Kids, Grindhouse, and Machete. A Los Angeles native, Trejo began building his restaurant empire in L.A. in 2016, opening Trejo’s Tacos, followed by Trejo’s Coffee & Donuts. He now has eight Trejo’s Tacos locations in the Los Angeles area, including two new locations in the Original Farmer’s Market and in the Colony in West L.A. Trejo’s Coffee & Donuts has also proven to be just as successful and will continue to expand in the near future.

Despite Danny’s impressive list of credits, it is his continuous role as a devoted father of three and an intervention counselor that bring him the most satisfaction. Danny’s colorful life and prolific career are chronicled in the new bio-documentary Inmate #1 which will be available early 2020. Danny is also preparing to share his love of food with the world with the release of his first cookbook Trejo’s Tacos: Recipes and Stories from LA, which will hit the shelves on April 21, 2020. We look forward to welcoming Trejo to the City of Bellflower as we pay tribute to our local community heroes.
