The Vendys to Honor Food Trucks from Jersey


New York’s Vendy Awards is adding a new category this year: New Jersey food trucks. Three competitors from the Garden State have been entered, including Taco Truck and the vegan Cinnamon Snail, from Hoboken; and Jersey City’s Two Pitas in a Pod.

“Every year, the Vendys receives more and more nominations for New Jersey-based vendors,” Vendy Awards managing director Helena Tubis told The Jersey Journal. “And this year these nominations were so overwhelming that we decided to create a new award category to recognize the culinary talents of our neighbors in New Jersey.”

New Jersey native Peter Hoffman, of the now-closed Savoy, is one of the judges. But, surely, this won’t affect how he votes on September 24.
