FOOD TRUCK WARS II will be held July 15th, 2012 at Cranes Roost Park / Uptown Altamonte in Altamonte Springs, Florida. 40 Gourmet Food Trucks from all over the State will be on site to compete once again in 6 categories. There will be some new trucks debuting and some from the 1st round seeking revenge. Foodies will have a chance to vote on cuisines from Thai Food, Fish & Chips, BBQ, Gourmet Cupcakes and everything in between. The competition has been extended this round to include your Favorite Desserts along with the original categories of Peoples Choice Award, Top Sales, Largest Single Food Item, Chefs Taste Off, and the Most Fun Food Truck Appearance.
The Altamonte Springs Optimist Club will be at the event working along with the shows promoters to raise money in support of its’ local charities.
The phenomenon of Gourmet Food Truck rivalry (all in the name of good fun, of course) has been a Huge Hit. At the inaugural event in March 2012 an estimated 30,000 people turned up. 37 food trucks sold out of food completely. How much food can 30,000 people eat? How about a 4 foot x 3 foot trough of nachos, 40 lbs of Gator 40 lbs of shrimp. In addition to an amazing event, food trucks and foodies donated over $3,000 through the Oviedo Optimist Club.
“Food Truck Wars I was an amazing experience” said Liz Otts, President of Food Truck Crazy, Inc “and Food Truck Wars II will be event better.
