We were overwhelmed by the positive response to the Eat St. Video Contest, both from the 67 food trucks who entered their quirky, hilarious, and heartwarming videos to all the fans and communities who banded together to ensure that their favourite truck rose to the top. With over 20,000 votes in total, we finally tallied who the top five fan favourites are, and the judges (after much deliberating) narrowed down the grand prize winner. It was a tough call, all these trucks did such a great job at showing us their personalities and their delicious food. But one truck must rule them all. Without further adieu…
At the end of contest voting it was clear who the top five fan favourites were:
Gorilla Cheese – Hamilton, ON
Westcott Country Kitchen – Carstairs, AB
Chef Johnson’s Johnson – Mamaroneck, NY
Hot Diggity Dog – Erieau, ON
The Bacon Wagon – Fort Worth, TX
We know that these trucks had impressive campaigns to rally the votes of their fans and communities, so when we sat down to figure out who the grand prize winner of a professionally filmed Eat St. segment would be, we realized, we had to give it to the truck whose fans were so dedicated, so adamant, and just so darn supportive.
Congratulations to Gorilla Cheese from Hamilton, ON (Canada)!
