The Lei-Away Leidies sell leis and Hawaiian products from their truck. They've never cooked or sold food before for their business. But now these three ladies will try to win $50,000 on The Great Food Truck Race.

Carey Ofahengaue and Summer Prescott, along with Summer's daughter Autumn, established their Lehi-based company Lei Away in 2007 as a way to "promote the expansion of aloha" by selling flower leis and other Hawaiian products in the continental United States.

On Aug. 28, they'll undertake a different type of business as they compete for a $50,000 prize on Food Network's competition show The Great Food Truck Race.

According to Food Network, six teams of families will compete for the grand prize in the upcoming seventh season of the show, but there's a twist—none of the teams have operated a food truck business before.
