Graham Chamber Hosts 7th Annual Food Truck Championship
The Graham Chamber of Commerce hosted the Food Truck Championship of Texas [FTCT] on June 4, awarding the $10,000 grand champion prize to Sushi Dojo of Southlake, Texas. The event has quickly become one of the more popular events hosted by GCC, and this year was no different. The event drew in large crowds from Young County and surrounding areas for a day of live music, close to forty food trucks and around 21 vendors selling products.
Although the headliner for the events concert, Dwight Yoakam, cancelled due to health reasons, the GCC quickly stepped in and got Brent Cobb to perform a free concert on the square. Other performers for the event included Jamie Lin Wilson, Ryan Beaver, Ross Cooper, Red Shahan, Zack McGinn, Jason Eady and Mike McClure.
FTCT concert sponsor and presenter was Graham Saving & Loan. Platinum Sponsors included: Graham Regional Medical Center, The Ranch 95.9 & HANK FM 92.1, J&N Feed and Seed, LLC, Holiday Auto Group and KAUZ Channel 6.
