Its season four for the Food Network’s “Great American Food Truck Race,” a reality TV show that features eight ambitious cooking teams competing to win a new food truck.
With Chef Tyler Florence again hosting the show, the teams will cover more than 4,000 miles between Hollywood and Washington, D.C., preparing dishes with non-traditional ingredients and trying to attract fans in every location.
This year’s teams include two from the LA-area: Aloha Plate, which also operates in Hawaii, and Bowled and Beautiful. To be considered for the show, each team submitted a demo tape that featured team members cooking and detailing about their foodservice dreams. Finalists are given a truck to use and must operate on a limited budget during the competition.
As “Great American Food Truck Race” demonstrates, operating a successful food truck business isn’t easy and serving delicious food to hundreds of people day in and day out is a big challenge. In addition to entertaining viewers, the show is educational because it gives potential food truck owners tips on starting a food truck business and making it profitable.
Thankfully, Southern California has plenty of experienced food truck operators, and many are veterans when it comes to serving street food and catering events both large and small.
