- Laredo Taco Company® food trailer will sell all three 2019 Selena cups at Fiesta de la Flor
IRVING, TEXAS (April 11, 2019) – Stripes® Stores has released three limited-edition, collectible cups featuring Selena. The 2019 Selena commemorative collectible cups are for sale at Stripes stores in Texas and Louisiana, while supplies last.
Stripes officials have said they expect the cups to go fast. Selena fans can purchase the 2019 Selena cup designs– limit two per person, while supplies last.
Company officials worked with Selena’s sister, Suzette Quintanilla, to create the three designs for the 2019 collection featuring the music legend.
“We are excited to work yet again with Stripes on these beautiful commemorative cups for the fans,” said Quintanilla, CEO of Q Productions. “Selena definitely continues to inspire us all, and this is just a small gesture to help celebrate her amazing Legacy that will be celebrated in her hometown of Corpus Christi, Texas, on April 12 and13 at Fiesta De La Flor.”
The first cup design is called “Queen of Cumbia” and features a nod to pop art with a retro-look around a black and white sketch of Selena. The second cup, Selena Rose, features Selena against her signature white roses, and the third cup is called Selena Forever showcasing her iconic purple tones throughout the cup. This year’s cups hold either hot or cold beverages and are double wall-insulated, dishwasher safe and BPA free.
“We are honored to collaborate again with Suzette, Selena’s sister, on the release of the 2019 Selena commemorative cup collection,” said 7-Eleven (Stripes) Senior Vice President, Brad Williams. “Selena is such an inspiration to our customers and her fans. We look forward to bringing all three of these beautifully designed, high-quality Selena cups to our customers. We encourage Selena fans to get their cups early, while supplies last.”
Stripes is a founding sponsor of the fifth annual Fiesta de la Flor (FDLF), a two-day event held in Corpus Christi, Texas, honoring the life and legacy of Selena Quintanilla. This year’s FDLF is April 12-13, the superstar’s hometown.
