Have you been dreaming of owning and operating your very own food truck? Bummed you missed out on the chance last season? Well, you are in luck. Acclaimed chef and host of The Great Food Truck Race TYLER FLORENCE is once again giving you the opportunity to START YOUR OWN FOOD TRUCK!
We are currently searching for passionate chefs and inspiring stories 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 you and 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 teammates will embark on an epic coast-to-coast culinary road trip to convince Americans that you have what it takes to make it in the food truck business. The last team standing wins a gourmet food truck AND a big cash prize!
Email FoodTruckRaceCasting@rrstaff.com with you name, age, photo, proposed teammates (and their photos), description of your culinary background and the idea for your truck.
**Food truck newbies ONLY, please. You must have NEVER owned/run your own food truck to be considered.**
Are you passionate about food and have you always dreamed about owning an eatery of your own? Do you have a foolproof idea for a locally inspired, original food court hot spot?

We are looking for two-person teams with preexisting relationships (e.g., friends, family, couples, co?workers). Contestants must believe they have the winning formula to successfully run their original food court restaurant.
For where we will be and more information on the show, please visit us at www.FoodCourtWarsCasting.com.
