FS020- Food Truck Face Off – Vasavi Kumar

FoodTruckr School Podcast Artwork

The Great Food Truck Race on Food Network is in the middle of it’s fifth successful season. That tells you something about this industry – it’s growing, and it’s becoming more mainstream.

It’s growing so much, The Food Network has decided to air a second show about food trucks called Food Truck Face Off!

We couldn’t be more excited!

Food Truck Face Off airs on Thursday, October 2nd at 8:00pm ET/PT, and I’m very happy to welcome one of the first contestants on the show, Vasavi Kumar!

On this episode, Vasavi talks about how she got on the show, what it was like (especially working with her Father on the truck!), and what she’s learned from this whole experience.

You’ll get a taste of what the show is like, and get to know one of the contestants, before the show even airs – how cool is that?!

We’ll tune into the new show when it airs for sure, but for now, you can enjoy this sneak peek. 🙂
