Great Food Truck Race Season 4 – Week 3 Recap


SPOILER ALERT: See which team got eliminated below!

This is Week 3 of The Great Food Truck Race – Season 4, the remaining 6 teams headed east to Pocatello, Idaho where they met up with Tyler Florence on a potato farm. However, the teams weren’t instructed to use pototoes in their dishes. Instead, they went on to start their service as usual. But Tyler told them to remember the potato farm. Turns out that later in the challenge, Tyler called up the teams and had them shut down their operations and head back to the potato farm to harvest potatoes for their next challenge.

All the teams had to incorporate potatoes has a main ingredient in their dishes. In addition, there was a Truck Stop challenge where the winners got an extra cash bonus for their efforts. Of course there usually isn’t a season of The Great Food Truck Race that goes by without some sort of accident. This time, Philly’s Finest Sambonis accidently ran their truck into a sign. Luckily for them, they only had to pay the insurance deductible of $500. But that is a huge amount that is enough to eliminate them from the race. Again, one team had to be sent home due to low sales numbers. Here’s a summary of how each truck did financially:

Week 3 Cash Totals:

  • Bowled and Beautiful $3643
  • Aloha Plate $2744
  • Tikka Tikka Taco $2339
  • The Slideshow $2004
  • Philly’s Finest Samboni’s $1912
  • The Frankfoota Truck $1668

The teams made significant increases in total sales in the third week of the challenge. But for The Frankfoota Truck, it wasn’t enough. They had been hanging down towards the bottom and finally, the other teams edged them out. Their total of $1668 is still a very respectable total for a team that has had no experience running a food truck. We’re coming up on week 4 of The Great Food Truck Race. The remainng teams are left and they’re off on a long trip to Rapid City, South Dakota for their next city!
