After a one-year hiatus, more than two dozen food trucks rolled into Veterans Park in Springfield Saturday, marking the return of the Springfield Rotary Gourmet Food Truck Competition for a seventh year. But only one of them rolled out of town with an extra $10,000.
Mojo Tago, from Powell, Ohio, took home the $10,000 grand prize for having the Best Food Truck Cuisine, with its Korean Short Rib BBQ taco, as voted on by a panel of celebrity judges during the second annual Springfield Rotary Gourmet Food Truck Competition on Saturday.
The food truck craze that has swept the nation came to Springfield on Saturday with the city’s first-ever Rotary Gourmet Food Truck Competition.
Andrew Payne, owner of Hunger Paynes, just one of 35 food trucks participating in Springfield Rotary’s Gourmet Food Truck Competition Aug. 16, was a featured guest leading up to the event on WDTN’s Living Dayton television show.
