The results from our Cajun Food Truck contest for 2018 are in. After collecting over 3,400 votes, congratulations goes out to the Ragin Cajun On Wheels food truck out of Los Angeles, CA for winning our 2018 Cajun Food Truck of the Year!
Ragin Cajun On Wheels – Los Angeles, CA
Stephen Domingue, moved to California in 1988. Before long, he was missing the culture of Lafayette, especially the incredible food that he had become so accustomed to. It wasn’t long before he realized that he had an opportunity to bring Cajun food, that is real authentic Cajun food, to California. He would go on to open up the very first and pioneering Ragin’ Cajun restaurant in Hermosa Beach, California on April 1, 1992. He eventually engaged the help of his mother, and his sister, to help run the increasingly popular restaurant.
This unique and successful restaurant would carry-on for the next 18 years. During the final year of his lease in Hermosa Beach, Stephen was presented with an opportunity to pioneer the Cajun food concept yet again. He managed to win a coveted slot in the first reality cable show of its kind, The Great Food Truck Race on the Food Network Channel. Stephen didn’t win the race, but he gained a huge following for what he was doing with his truck.
When the time came for Stephen to move out of the restaurant, he decided to build on the popularity of the food truck. In a matter of months, he would go on to win six consecutive food truck competitions, which reaffirmed his feeling that he was onto something.
In 2012, Stephen enlisted the support of others with the intent of building on the work that he has been doing with the food trucks and of getting back into both quickserve restaurants and full service restaurants. Ragin’ Cajun has already expanded our fleet of trucks and opened up their first restaurant in 2013.
Congratulations to the Rajin Cajun On Wheels food truck team and their enthusiastic voters/diners!
