Food Truck Face-Off turns the American phenomenon of food trucks into a team-building competition, resulting in the most delicious face-off imaginable.
After teams have formed and participated in competitive large group ice breakers to “rank” them, they choose which cuisine and theme their truck will feature. All-American, Mexican, Mediterranean, Asian, Vegetarian, and “Sweet Tooth” are all on the table and up for grabs. Menu
Once cuisines are chosen, it’s time to get to work, picking a company name, designing a logo, and building a large truck façade with cardboard, duct tape, and decorative materials. Teams also create their menus, as well as a commercial they will perform to whet their colleagues’ appetites.
To test each team’s culinary creativity, specific ingredients will be provided, and suggestions for the dishes to be served, but there will be no actual recipes.
In addition to creating a tasty dish, points are earned for presentation, using “food truck” materials, including paper plates, bowls, wax paper, and the like.
Working as a cohesive team, participants will attempt to out-cook, out-market, and out-score their competition, in an effort to win gold medals.
The final stage, of course, is chowing down on these delectable delights, roaming from truck to truck, and experiencing an indoor culinary road-trip adventure!
