Andrew Zimmern to Give Out Big Food Truck Tip of $10,000 in Cities Across America
The new series premieres with back-to-back episodes on Wednesday, Sept. 19 starting at 10|9c.
As an entrepreneur, a former food truck owner and a passionate eater with years of culinary experiences behind him, no one knows the ins and outs of the American food truck scene quite like Andrew Zimmern. He recognizes the hard work that’s needed to launch and sustain a mobile business, he’s quick to spot burgeoning talent when he sees it, and he certainly knows good food. This summer, Andrew is kicking off one of his most-important food missions to date as he hits the road to reward food truck operators who are doing it all and doing it right.
On Big Food Truck Tip, premiering Wednesday, Sept. 19 with back-to-back episodes starting at 10|9c, Andrew will visit cities big and small to experience a trio of trucks and trailers in the local area. He’ll meet the folks who run the operation on the ground, learn their histories and inspirations, and get up close and personal with some of their signature menu items. But as he’s visiting each truck, he’ll also be taking stock of its opportunities for growth in the future — because he’s got a surprise up his sleeve to help one location. Big time. The food truck owners don’t know this, but before Andrew’s trip to each city is complete, he’ll return to one of the trucks and leave a whopping $10,000 cash tip in the jar. Each entrepreneur is dedicated and hard-working, but only one will unknowingly show off their special something to Andrew and ultimately find themselves with a life-changing tip.
Emotion, grit, real stories, mouthwatering food and passionate people — it’s all on the menu on Big Food Truck Tip. Get ready to experience cities like Minneapolis (Andrew’s adopted hometown!), Charleston and Birmingham, among others, like you’ve never seen them before. Andrew is set to take you on a journey into the heart and soul of their one-of-a-kind food truck communities.
Mark your calendars for the premiere of Big Food Truck Tip, premiering Wednesday, Sept. 19 at 10|9c and 10:30|9:30c.
