Exciting news!

This will be by far the largest food truck rally ever held in Jacksonville with over 20 trucks competing head to head.  A portion of event proceeds will be donated to Second Harvest North Florida.  AND b/c this is being held in the summertime, the event will be held in the evening from 6-10p.

Looking forward to it. The number of trucks in the area and cuisines served have increased so much in the last few months, I haven't had the opportunity to try most of the new ones out.

Can't. Wait!
Do you believe that when the blue jay or another bird sings and the body is trembling, that is a signal that people are coming or something important is about to happen?

The two women that run it got ripped on Shark Tank for wanting to abandon their food truck in favor of a brick and mortar restaurant. I guess they learned their lesson and are now expanding. Wonder why they choose Jax as their first expansion?

Also can't wait for the competition. Great work Jax Truckies

Yeah, I saw that episode! Maybe they decided to franchise out to third parties after receiving lots of attention from the show.

So is this like a chain food truck?

Looks like it. The owners of the business were pitching a brick and mortar store based on their successful food truck in LA, but the sharks were only interested in replicating the food truck business on a larger scale. Like Maximus suggested, they likely decided to franchise it out. Or perhaps they decided on Jax as their first expansion.

Looks like they are indeed franchising.
