It was a PIRTEK brush with TV fame. PIRTEK Broadway in San Antonio recently provided some custom hoses for a mobile food truck that celebrity TV chef Gordon Ramsay uses in his Fox show “Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back.”
The team at Cruising Kitchens, a company that outfits and customizes elaborate food trucks, were constructing one for the popular show and needed some hydraulic hoses. Another company had furnished some hoses already, but they weren’t what the Cruising Kitchens people wanted. So, PIRTEK Broadway stepped up and fulfilled the request with several custom hoses to keep the project on track.
The customer is located conveniently, right across the street from PIRTEK Broadway. “Being so close to us, they frequently come over here when they need hydraulic hoses or service,” said Robert Guzman, PIRTEK Broadway operations manager. “We were happy to help them out.”
Dubbed “Hell on Wheels 2.0,” the 18-wheel food truck employs sophisticated technology and is 70 feet long. Hydraulics power its automated transformation from vehicle to kitchen. Panels on the trailer open to reveal a cooking area with ovens, an ice maker and other stainless-steel appliances.
Ramsay has starred in a number of reality shows in which he helps save existing restaurants or selects head chefs from among vying participants. In “Gordon Ramsay’s 24 Hours to Hell and Back,” the host removes cooks from their restaurants temporarily and retrains them off site in the mobile restaurant. Ramsay is renowned for his meticulous standards and volatile temper during the show’s episodes.
