Whether you’re a native New Yorker or a visiting tourist, there’s no denying that mobile food trucks have made their mark on this great city. And Shanghai Mobile Kitchen Solutions has certainly contributed to NYC’s culinary legacy. In fact, several of the custom food trucks built by Shanghai are in the running for Vendy Awards this coming September.
The Vendy Awards are a cook-off event during which food truck finalists dish up their best menu items for all the self-proclaimed foodies in attendance. Food will be judged by an expert panel and the winning dish will receive an award for its category.
Since Vendy finalists are selected by public nomination, this competition and these awards are considered the highest acclaim in the food truck industry. And with more than 25 years of food truck building experience, it comes as no surprise that Shanghai Mobile Kitchen Solutions has built trucks worthy of nomination. As a matter of fact, the Shanghai-built Nuchas truck won the People’s Choice award back in 2014.
This year, food truck masters will be competing in the following categories:
- Vendy Cup/People’s Choice
- Rookie of the Year
- Best of Market
- Best of Dessert
The 11th Annual Vendy Awards will be held on Saturday, September 12th at Governors Island from 12:30 p.m. - 5 p.m. The event doubles as a fundraiser with proceeds going to support The Street Vendor Project, which aims to protect the rights and interests of street vendors throughout the city.
