The movie “Chef” launched last week (in LA and NYC) which is bound to attract even more food trucks to the consistently growing mobile food industry in the next couple of years. This means jobs will be created across the country, ranging from line cooks to service staff, but one of the area of job creation often missed in the discussion is the graphic designer.

Designers provide the creative flair that helps to differentiate their clients from the other trucks on the road. Over the years this has resulted in some really cool art on wheels.

We at Mobile Cuisine would like to know who our readers feel has the best custom designed food truck or food cart design. Because of this, we are starting a competition to find out who it is.

Starting today, we are asking for you to submit your favorite food truck design for 2014. In last year’s contest we had a fantastic turnout and our final winner was Renny’s Oki Doki from Tampa, FL. The designer that came up with the winning graphic design was Ruben A. Aquino.

You may submit as many times as you would like, but each submission must be submitted individually. We will accept entries until Friday, May 23rd. At that point we will narrow the field down to your top 10 selections. On Monday, May the 26th, we will open up a poll for you to determine this year’s winner. The final poll will wrap up on Friday, June the 6th. The truck with the most votes from the poll will be declared our winner.

The winning truck will have a profile interview posted on Mobile Cuisine, and the design group that installed the artwork will be given one month of free advertising on Mobile Cuisine.

  • Designs must be of a food truck or cart that has been operating since the end of April 2014 (anywhere in the world). Previous winners are able to be submitted.
  • Designs can be painted or wrapped onto any mobile food platform.
  • Feel free to submit one or more trucks or vote for a single truck more than once, however each entry must be submitted individually.

You can submit your vote on the form at the bottom of this page or email us at [email protected]

Please include the name of the truck and the city it operates in. We will contact each vehicle owner that makes it to the polling stage to submit images of their graphics, so don’t worry about attaching images of vehicles in your submission.
