The Food Network’s “Great American Food Truck Race,” a reality program pitting eight ambitious cooking teams against each other, has rolled into its fourth season.
Once again, Chef Tyler Florence hosts the show as the teams travel 4,000-plus miles between California and the nation’s capital preparing foods with non-traditional ingredients and trying to make sales wherever they stop. Their goal: to be the first place winner and take home a new food truck.
This year’s contestants include two teams from Los Angeles – Bowled and Beautiful and the Aloha Plate, which also operates in Hawaii. To apply as a contestant, each team submitted a video tape of themselves preparing food and talking about their plans for a foodservice business. Finalists use a Food Network truck during the contest and must adhere to a strict budget and rules throughout the competition.
As the “Great American Food Truck Race” demonstrates, running a successful food truck and serving perfect dishes to hundreds of people each day is no easy task. For many viewers who would like to own a food truck, the show demonstrates how food truck operators must work hard to succeed, manage costs, confront unexpected obstacles and generate a profit.
The Los Angeles area is heaven for food truck lovers, and many are caterers too, serving events of all sizes. The next time you need an experienced food truck team to serve your party, feed your wedding guests, nourish your business colleagues or make your grand opening even grander, call on one of these experienced food truck teams.
