The popular food truck CapMac will serve delicious comfort food for the final time on Friday.
From a message posted to its website:
This Friday, November 14th we will be celebrating our 3rd anniversary at the place it all started – Farragut Square. It’s a bittersweet day for us, because it will also be our last day of service. We cannot say thank you enough for supporting us throughout the years – our customers have been nothing short of inspiring. Thousands of the best the DMV has to offer pushed us to be better, try harder, and keep dreaming. Special thanks to our friends on “CapMac’s Wall of Fame” for their overwhelming support, and to the DMV Food Truck Association for all the support they have given us these last three years.
The message states that they “have our eyes set on new and opportunities in the future and we’ll be sure to keep everyone updated on our next move.” Update: Owner Brian Arnoff says they don’t have any firm plans at the moment for a next step, but are looking at other opportunities in the D.C.-area.
When asked why CapMac is calling it quits, Arnoff said “a lot of factors … added up to us. The market has changed a lot.” He added that it’s now an entirely different, though still great, market than it was three years ago when they began. So now he’ll take some time off from the food truck to explore other opportunities, he said.
Arnoff added that he wants to thank their loyal customers and fans for their support.
Farewell, Greatest Idea Ever.
