Great American Foodie Fest LLC was founded by Noel Casimiro, Art Casimiro, Oliver Tolentino and Marc Tolentino.
Their mission was to create an innovative food festival that would encompass the Nation’s best food trucks and food vendors that have been featured on the Food Network, Cooking Channel, Travel Channel and other popular food shows.
After the event’s huge success in Las Vegas, the founding members made a decision to expand the event to other major markets across the U.S. In 2015 the Great American Foodie Fest made its debut in San Diego California and Tempe, Arizona.
