Tyler Florence Discusses Dallas Food Trucks, Kinda
In a recent interview with Sarah Bennet of DMagazine, the host of the Great Food Truck Race sat down and discussed a number of issues. Most of which revolved around his new book, others on the Great Food Truck Race and the mobile food scene in Dallas.
Sarah Bennett: Is there going to be a season 4 of The Great Food Truck Race? If so, what would it take for one of our Dallas food trucks to get on the show?
Tyler Florence: That’s a really good question. We’re meeting at the end of the week about it. When the show is over, we have an end-of-year wrap up/planning session. We’ll start shooting in April. We haven’t pinpointed the root of how we’re getting across the country.
SB: Have you tried any of our Dallas food trucks? What’s your favorite one?
TF: I haven’t been to Dallas in a while, probably in about two years, and my last trip was a very fast, in-and-out trip, so I have not. But here’s the thing: I think food trucks are the new answer to American fast food. The idea of raising two or three million dollars and going through red tape to open a restaurant, there’s lots of barriers to success. There’s a really easy jumping place for food trucks. It’s very hip and acceptable for new chefs to open a food truck first.
