Why do you deserve to win the Vendy Award?: We should win the Vendy Award based on the whole package. We have great food, great customer service, and we are team players with our compadres. Ultimately we are not competitive with others, only with ourselves. We have a goal of providing fresh & classic comfort foods, with a smile. I'm also thinking that we are the only mobile food vendors in Philly that can get our fans to sing, dance, do stupid human tricks and deliver jokes on cue.

The 2012 Vendys are set for Saturday, July 28, 2012, 3:00-7:00 p.m. at The Lot @ 39th and Market. Tickets for the Philadelphia Vendys, which is all-you-can-eat and includes beer, can be purchased at http://phillyvendys2012.eventbrite.com for $55 in advance and $60 day of event.
