 Image result for great food truck race season 8

Have you been dreaming of owning and operating your very own food truck but haven’t had the means to do it? Do you have a small mom and pop food shop that you would love to expand into a truck? Are you the hottest selling stand at your Farmer’s Market? Or, maybe you HAD a brick and mortar restaurant, but had to shut down? This could be your chance to resurrect your business and start over!

 We are currently searching for passionate chefs and cooks from all walks of life – trained chefs, amateur chefs, line cooks, sous chefs, home cooks and dedicated foodies to compete for the chance to OWN and operate their very first FOOD TRUCK.

 You will choose two teammates to make up your food truck dream team. Whether it’s your best friends, your siblings, your parents, your culinary school classmates, or your kids – this team should be made up of the people you trust and know the very best! We provide the rest … the truck, the supplies, and the adventure of a lifetime.

If selected, you and your two teammates will embark on an epic culinary road trip to convince Americans that you have what it takes to make it in the food truck business! You’ll build relationships, build a brand, and hopefully out-cook the competition! 

 If you are passionate about cooking and are ready to take your dream on the road, then we need to hear from you TODAY! 

To apply, please send us an email to FoodTruckRaceCasting@criticalshows.com
