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: 5x07 -- Finale at Mile 0 - Winning Keys in Key West (Sep/28/2014)


Tyler lays down the final gauntlet, as the teams must revisit each of the six lessons learned throughout the race, on an epic Florida road trip. They finalize their menu in Tampa, create a radio spot on the beach, partner up in Naples, take airboats into the Everglades for fresh alligator and then battle head to head in a cooking challenge to double their till, all before arriving in Key West. The teams sell on Duvall Street before being called to the White Street Pier for the final tally announcement, where one team will be crowned the winner of the Great Food Truck Race, driving away with $50,000 and the keys to their very own food truck.


Prev: 5x06 -- Shrimpin' Ain't Easy (Sep/21/2014)


The three remaining teams roll into Mobile, Ala., where Tyler challenges them to cook locally. After enduring sub-zero temperatures, one team walks away with nearly 100 pounds of fresh gulf shrimp free of charge from a local wholesaler. Once they hit the streets of Mobile, Tyler challenges them to add a brunch dish to their menu, and local chef Pete Bloeme is on hand to help Tyler determine the winner of the Truck Stop Cooking Challenge. One team is eliminated on the deck of the USS Alabama, leaving the final two teams primed for the grand finale.
