The first Food Truck Wars was in 2011 and was started by Liz Rivera Otts. She is the daughter of an Air Force member and when she was younger her family would attend block parties to get to know their neighbors. Otts’ goal in starting Food Truck Wars was to bring the community together and provide a family-friendly event for everyone to enjoy.
