Local driving school owners will appear on Food Network show

Local driving school owners will appear on Food Network show

The Food Network will be using local driving school owners of the Hilmar/ Turlock G.E.T. Behind-The Wheel Driving School for their latest pilot and cable series, "Kitchen Inventors".

The series will be featuring food-related inventions that get tested out of the typical kitchen.  Inventors will perhaps have one of their products picked to hopefully get a licensing deal. The product for this episode, the Sippin' Snacker, combines a cup and a bowl together so that a person can eat and drink at the same time without using two hands.

The show hosts, (the first names of Patrick and Stephen are all that have been released), will be testing out the product while driving. The need for a certified driving instructor to grade their driving while using the product is where driving school owners, Richard and Christina Sargis will participate.  They are also owners of All Occasion's Limousine Services in the Turlock Modesto area.
