Devilicious Food Truck…Food so Good, It’s Bad

If you’d like more information about joining the Give Network Food Truck Fights Against Hunger, check out this article.

SAN DIEGO, CA – Keep in mind “The Great Food Truck Race” Season 2 was filmed in the spring. So when this Tyler-Florence-hosted, truck triathlon airs on the Food Network August 14, the Devilicious Food Truck squad was still together.

The founders (and one tag-along husband-to-be) were still beaming about their brand-new $48,000 gastrotruck, and their sinful menu of fried-egg topped burgers and BLTs porked up with extra bacon.

Those were the salad days.

Because Devilicious partners Dyann Manning (nee Huffman) and Kristina Repp split up this month.

Manning, a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America, will motor away with the Devilicious business.

You can find her doling out gourmet sandwiches downtown all throughout Comic-Con. (Newbies always get the signature butter-poached lobster grilled cheese on ultra-buttered sourdough.)

Manning says the Devilicious division is for the best, and that her new hubby Mark Manning will become her new business partner, too.

Repp, who has managed brick-and-mortar restaurants like the Pei Wei Asian Diner and Rancho Valencia, said, “I’ve decided to pursue different opportunities. I helped build Devilicious to what it is today. I wish Dyann the best of luck.”
