The Great Food Truck Race

The Great Food Truck Race


This is The Great Food Truck Race, where seven real teams representing the country's best food trucks hit the road to cook their way across America. Each week, the teams that sell the most food race on to the next episode. The losing team drives home. In the end, one food truck remains, and the team behind the wheel and the grill wins the $50,000 grand prize. These are great characters with fascinating existing relationships: They're husbands and wives, brothers and sisters, best friends. And they're already running the most successful, outrageous food trucks in the country — but never quite like this. Host Tyler Florence explains the rules, and they couldn't be simpler. In each city, the teams will start with a limited budget, then they have the weekend to strategize and sell. Anything else they buy (anything from more raw ingredients to ads on local TV) comes out of their profits. Whoever makes the most is safe. The truck that makes the least amount of money is eliminated. Delicious food? Check. A high stakes competition? Check. A cross-country adventure? Beautiful scenery? Big characters? Check. Check. Check. The Great Food Truck Race: chopping, peeling, dicing, slicing and serving great food in a parking lot near you. (Source: Food Channel)

Episode Info

Next: 5x04 -- High Steaks in OKC (Sep/07/2014)


Tyler meets the teams in Oklahoma City, where he tests their time management skills, penalizing the team who takes the longest to get their day started. The teams must also embrace local favorites, adding a steak dish to their menu on the first day, and then grinding 20 pounds of prime meat by hand to sell the local classic "fried onion burger" on the second. And only four teams will be left to push through the midway point of this competition.


Prev: 5x03 -- Dinner Dates, Austin Style (Aug/31/2014)


This week, Tyler tests each team on their partnership skills in Austin, Texas. The teams are first paired up to sell together all weekend long, and are then sent for a Match.com event, feeding the hungriest singles in Austin. The next day, the teams must switch trucks and sell their partners' food. Then, the elimination comes down to a six dollar deficit.
