Switzerland Votes

Not one day. Not two. The 2024 Swiss Street Food Awards finals in Winterthur went across THREE days. It’s the third year for the Swiss Street Food Awards, and what a competition it was. The best street food in the country, nine finalists from all over Switzerland and three overjoyed winners!

Jaybees received the highest honour and was named ‘Best of Switzerland 2024’ by the expert jury. ‘Jaybees completely won over the four-member jury of experts and scored very highly,’ says Andreas Albonico-Seiler from Foodtrucks Schweiz, who organise the culinary competition. The Carrot Dog was particularly surprising with its explosion of flavour.

The jury judged the overall appearance of the participants and the presentation of the food. And of course the flavour, smell, recipe, quality of ingredients, texture and mouthfeel. The “Jury’s Favourite” award went to Acapulco Grill and the “People’s Choice” to Don Curry, who received the award back in 2022.

Despite bad weather on the second day, the Awards were well received in Winterthur. “The atmosphere was great,” says Albonico-Seiler. The joy of winning was written all over Jaybees’ faces. And as the Best of Switzerland, the purple food truck will now receive a ticket for the European finals in Saarbrücken October 4-6, where it will compete against 15 other countries. “We’re delighted,” say Jaybees.
