After three years of service, the popular DC food truck CapMac declared Friday to be its final day on the road – a startling decision that rocked the worlds of some GW students who regularly incorporate CapMac as part of their diets.
For three years CapMac has been frequenting GW campus at Foggy Bottom, along with other popular food truck locations. The truck has a loyal following of customers who found it hard to say goodbye.
The social media response to CapMac’s closing was overwhelming – many customers tweeted their sad and distressed remarks, unsure of how they will carry on when their favorite food truck is no longer on the streets.
But chef and owner Brian Arnoff feels that this is the right time to close.
“We wanted to move on to other opportunities,” Arnoff said. “It’s been a really great run.”
CapMac has developed a strong GW following during their three years of operation.
“We really enjoyed our time at GW and getting to know all the students,” Arnoff said as he expressed his gratitude for all of CapMac’s loyal GW customers. “We made some great relationships with the students there.”
CapMac spent Thursday, its second-to-last day of service, on Foggy Bottom, and Friday at Farragut on the corner of 17th and K.
When asked what is coming next after CapMac, Arnoff said, “I don’t have any firm plans yet. It’s the end of one chapter and hopefully the beginning of another one soon.”
