Local food trucks could make Food Network show

Filed under: Daily News,Retail | Tags:, ,

Three local food trucks have the chance of a lifetime – to appear on national television and possibly win $100,000.

Her Story Café, which can be found at different locations throughout the city, has been nominated for a chance to be on the Food Network’s The Great Food Truck Race.

Owned by Liz Rosenbaum, Her Story Café, features soups and sandwiches – with a bit of women’s history thrown in for good measure. She buys meat from Ranch Foods Direct, a locally owned company that specializes in grass-fed beef. Her vegetables are also local, she said.

CoCo, the Springs Cupcake Truck, is actually running eighth on the list. CoCo is the only dessert food truck in the Springs, according to owners, and operates out of a vintage 1971 Ford van.

Crepe Crusaders is a family owned business that serves various crepes, with a side of humor, according to the Food Network Web site.

To get on the show, the trucks need votes. Vote online at the Food Network’s web site. The trucks with the highest number of  votes will be named America’s favorite, and receive $10,000. Winner of the television show – which will feature eight trucks – will receive $100,000.
