We have worked all our lives for this. Ten years ago, food journalist Richard Johnson was so inspired by what he saw in New York that he launched the first ever British Street Food Awards. A few years later, he launched the European Street Food Awards. The USA Street Food Awards was written in the stars. Once we found the right partners (Food Fleet – we love you) it was only a matter of time.
So….we are holding nationwide heats this Autumn for the first ever USA Street Food Awards. Food Fleet work with more than 3,000 of the best trucks across America, which is a great start. But we don’t just want the OGs. We want the new bloods. Bursting with new ideas. We want to hear from the very best concepts and popups that are out there…..the new food heroes. Interested?
OKAY – WHAT’S IN IT FOR ME?
Bragging rights. You’ll get press attention from all round the world. We’ve got a top PR agency on board. Venture capitalists who want some of your action. In 2022 we’re planning to put together a US team to take on the best of Britain and Europe. At very least, it will be one HECK of an adventure. And traders love an adventure.
WHAT DO I HAVE TO DO?
Head to our application form immediately with pictures AND some words saying who you are, what’s great about your food AND why we should choose you, and put you up against the best food trucks America has to offer. We’ll be in touch!
HOW DOES IT WORK?
If chosen, we will invite you to come along and trade at one of our USA heats. You will then cook your heart out, like any normal lunch market, but at the USA Street Food Awards the public will be voting for their People’s Choice. We will also have a panel of industry experts/Michelin starred chefs etc, and and they will choose their top traders. The winners go straight to the finals.
WHAT HAPPENS NOW?
Let us know if you’re interested.
We’ll vet your application. Fingers crossed!
