The sixth annual Food Truck Warz event will be taking place at the Keystone Centre in Brandon from September 15-17. The three-day event pits some of the province’s best trucks against each other for a battle of the best. While foodies in Brandon are anxiously awaiting their opportunity to try the offerings from the 28 different vendors, the food trucks themselves have had this date circled on their calendar for some time as well.
Darren Zembik, owner of the extremely popular Wings-n-Fries food truck, is looking forward to participating in the event for the 5th time. “We enjoy the event in Brandon due to the amount of people that support the food trucks. Also the setup of the food trucks and the location are ideal.” Zembik told bdnmb.ca. The affable Zembik, who also operates a mini-donut and lemonade truck (Lemon Train), participants in 3 events annually that are similar to the Brandon Food Truck Warz. “I would rank the Brandon Food Truck Warz very high on a scale a solid 10. The amount of thought and advertising to promote this event is done to the max to assure the event is a success”.
Regina’s Tim Philip (Frying Deautschmann) participated for the first time in 2022 and is returning to the event in 2023. The summer is a very busy time of year for Philip who is extremely active on the food truck scene in Saskatchewan. “Brandon is our only Manitoba event at the moment. We love coming to Brandon because I grew up in Souris and still have family in the area” said Philip. The well decorated truck recently won the judges favorite (Nashville Hot Schnitzel Sandwich) at Regina’s Food Truck Wars. “The event (Brandon’s Food Truck Warz) itself is unique because it has the midway, and great services for vendors”.
