What is a food truck? What is a food truck rally? We get those questions frequently. Think of food trucks and trailers as tiny restaurants on giant wheels that come to your location and bring your choice of cuisine.
And what's a food truck rally? The video below was shot at the Lakeland Food Truck Rally that's put on with the Downtown Lakeland Partnership.
Where it all Started...
We started the first food truck rally way back in 2011 as a division of Tasting Tampa. We have come a long way since then, staging hundreds of events in the Tampa Bay Area. While Tampa Bay Food Trucks began as part of Tasting Tampa, the food truck rallies became such a huge success that partners Todd Sturtz and Michael Blasco decided to split the business and dedicate each part to a specific market segment. Tasting Tampa would focus on restaurants, and TBFT would focus on food trucks and rallies. TBFT has experienced amazing growth and has enjoyed working with the Tampa Bay Rays, Cigar City Brewing, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Grow Financial, USF Dining and USF Health, Tampa International Airport, Idlewild Baptist Church, Hyundai, and many more.
We couldn't have done this without the support of the Tampa Bay community, which has embraced us time and time again. Our hats are off to you, and we thank you for your support!
