Costco promotes GFTS from across the USA


If you haven't checked your mailbox, you'll find Food Trucks gracing the cover of the latest issue of Costco Connection. The writer provides a description about the new mainstream way of eating, and about the various GFTS across the nation. Click here for the online version.




For the most part, the article was fairly generic, but accurate.

Kudos to LA GFT @Grilledcheesetruk, and OC GFTS @Brcelonaonthego and @OCBurgerMonster for being loyal Costco Members!

FOOD TRUCK HOPEFULS HIT THE HIGHWAY FOR THIRD SEASON OF THE GREAT FOOD TRUCK RACE ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 19TH AT 10PM ET/PT

FOOD TRUCK HOPEFULS HIT THE HIGHWAY FOR THIRD SEASON OF THE GREAT FOOD TRUCK RACE ON SUNDAY, AUGUST 19TH AT 10PM ET/PT:

Food Network’s The Great Food
Truck Race returns for a third season this summer, with host Tyler Florence presiding over the cross-country culinary road trip with a brand-new twist.

Host Tyler Florence Returns for Culinary Road Trip with New Twist:
Competitors Are Aspiring Food Truck Owners Battling to Win Their Own Truck


Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race returns for a third season this summer, with host Tyler Florence presiding over the cross-country culinary road trip with a brand-new twist: no longer a competition between current food truck operators as in prior seasons, this high-stakes battle is between eight teams who desperately want to be in the food truck business – they have a dream, a concept and insane culinary skills.

Each three-person team is provided a vehicle for the race, but only the grand prize winner gets to keep their food truck and a $50,000 cash prize to start their dream business. From mobile mini-pies and authentic Aussie grub to specialty waffles, each team’s inspired cuisine and road strategy is put to the test in city-specific challenges that begin at a Long Beach, Calif. lighthouse and continue through the finale at the West Quoddy Lighthouse in Maine, the easternmost point of the United States. The seven-episode series premieres on Sunday, August 19th at 10pm ET/PT, after the finale of Chopped: Grill Masters, and beginning the next week will air in its regular timeslot Sundays at 9pm ET/PT.

“We love food trucks because they offer a relatively low cost, infinitely creative route to entering the food world. Casting aspiring food truck owners this season really amps up the competition – these teams are literally fighting for their dream,” said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President, Food Network. “Their culinary skills, business savvy and entrepreneurial spirit will be road-tested, and viewers will love seeing if the aspiring chefs’ dreams hold up when the rubber meets the road.”
