The business of food trucks, already a rage in Delhi NCR, is multiplying in other metros as well. To facilitate young and promising food truck entrepreneurs, and give them a platform to showcase their F&B skills to the audience at large, DFTF was launched in April this year. "The festival is the biggest in the country. This edition will see mouthwatering and sumptuous cuisines from across the globe from more than 40 food truck brands, over 30 F&B stalls, a mega bar, and an exclusive sheesha lounge. There will also be interesting games, fun activities and live music form some of the best singers and bands," says Abhishek Deo, founder and festival director at DFTF.
