Tikka Tikka Taco, the food truck that earned second place on Food Network’s Great Food Truck Race in 2013, is up for sale. As reported by Feast, Michael Swaleh was left to attempt to get the business off the ground when his brother moved California. After unsuccessful fundraising efforts and a disappointing Kickstarter campaign, Swaleh is now putting the rights to the business up for sale. For more information, contact Swaleh at
