New York - August 21, 2014 - Four talented teams compete to make their culinary dreams come true by winning their very own customized food truck for a year on new series Food Truck Face Off, premiering Thursday, October 2nd at 8:00pm ET/PT on Food Network. On each of the 13 episodes, hosted by Jesse Palmer,four teams present their unique food truck concepts to an expert panel of judges. Based on the viability and quality of their ideas, two teams will be selected to face off in an intense two-day showdown. The team that earns the most will drive away with the grand prize!

"With the popularity of food truck fare, and after five successful seasons of The Great Food Truck Race, the food truck industry continues to draw passionate food entrepreneurs," said Bob Tuschman, General Manager and Senior Vice President Programming, Food Network. "Food Truck Face Off provides the opportunity for aspiring food truck owners to realize their dreams in a heart-pounding culinary competition that tests every skill needed to succeed, including creativity, business savvy and, of course, culinary skills."

Throughout the season, the four teams must impress radio and television personality Steak Shapiro and restaurateur Alpana Singh (The Boarding House), as well as a rotating panel of guest judges including, Andrew Gruel (Slapfish Restaurant), Robyn Almodovar (Palate Party) and Zane Caplansky (Caplansky's Deli and Thunderin' Thelma), with their food truck concepts. Then, the two remaining teams must put their ideas to the test on the streets of North America. On the first day, it is truck-against-truck. The team with the tastiest food, best service and most pleasing presentation is awarded a critical special advantage during the final round. On the last day, the competition fuels up as the trucks must face off not only against each other, but against other local food trucks. The team with the highest profits at the end of the two days will be crowned winner, and will drive away with their own food truck for one full year!
