Food Network’s reality show “The Great Food Truck Race” is returning for its third season on Sunday, August 19. Past seasons of the show have featured food trucks that are established and experienced in the business already, but this season is taking a very different approach. Every competitor this year has never worked or cooked on a food truck. This lack of experience and knowledge on how the food truck business is run will surely test each team’s patience and motivation.
Because all of the contestants are just starting out in the business, there is much more at stake. Each one is trying to edge out the competition to win the grand prize of $50,000 and a food truck of their own. This will give the winning team the opportunity to establish and operate their very own food truck.
The eight teams competing this season are from all over the country and are cooking up distinct types and styles of food. The Barbie Babes serve burgers, Pop-a-Waffle serve both savory and sweet waffles, Momma’s Grizzly Grub serves unique pasta dishes, Coast of Atlanta serves elaborate seafood dishes, Nonna’s Kitchenette serves traditional Italian dishes inspired by their grandmother, Under the Crust serves sweet and savory pies paired with dipping sauces, Pizza Mike’s serves Italian favorites, and Seoul Sausage serves sausages dressed with Korean flavors and spices.
Season 3 of The Great Food Truck Race is sure to be a food-filled frenzy. Be sure to watch it on Sundays at 10pm EST starting August 19. Maybe you’ll be lucky enough to have the winning team serving on the streets of your neighborhood!
