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)
