Fojol Bros Retires Trucks, Elastic Highways On Hold @fojolbros

The Fojol Bros, DC’s first food truck, announced on Sunday that they have retired the last of their 3 food trucks due to the aging fleet of 1950′s – 60′s trucks.  The Washington City Paper has more info.  Also, the Fojol Bros’ Elastic Highways project is on hold, but they are still operating their kitchen in Hyattsville.  We are all curious to see what the Fojols’ will surprise us with next!

Chick-fil-A Food Truck Now Serving Waffle Fries! @ChickfilaMobile

Just announced: Chick-fil-A food truck adds waffle fries to their menu!  When the truck first launched almost two years ago, many were disappointed to learn that the usual menu was not rounded out with waffle fries. According to a couple of tweets this morning, waffle fries are now on the menu – enjoy! They will be serving at Farragut Square today (3/25).

District Taco Retires Carts To Focus On Restaurants @districttaco

It’s always bittersweet to report when a food truck (or, cart in the case) retires to focus on their brick and mortar shops. I’m guilty of dragging my feet in posting this as a result. ;-)

Last Friday was District Taco’s last day running their Arlington-based carts, as reported by ARLNow. The continued success of their brick and mortar business and a focus on opening their new Dupont Circle location contributed to the decision.

With a planned Crystal City retail spot, we will actually be able to enjoy a set of delicious corn tortilla tacos with more frequency and convenience. Congrats to District Taco!

Thanks to David for the original tip.

I just got word about Truckeroo’s dates for this year: 4/11, 5/9, 6/13, 7/11, 8/8, 9/12

It is held at the DC Fairgrounds, which is directly across from the Navy Yard ballpark metro entrance. There are usually 25 trucks in attendance, and the lineup changes from event to event. Truckeroo typically lasts from 11am – 11pm.

I’ll provide more details as we near the first Truckeroo of 2014!

DMV Food Truck Association Logo Contest! (March 7 midnight deadline)
Direct, from the DMV Food Truck Association:

 

Hey Food Truck Fans: We Need a Logo!

Winning Designer Receives 70 Free Lunches from DMV Food Truck Association!

 

WASHINGTON, DC – The DMV Food Truck Association today launched a contest to design the association’s new logo.

Send your logo to Che Ruddell-Tabisola, DMV Food Truck Association Executive Director, at che@bbqbusdc.com.

 

 

Submission Guidelines

 

The purpose of the contest is to create a new logo for the DMV Food Truck Association to be used online, in print and on a variety of merchandise. The winning logo will:

 

  • Visually convey the innovativeness and excitement that the food truck industry is known for.
  • Reflect a balanced emphasis on both mobility and cuisine.
  • Logo entries should be creative and do not necessarily have to include a food truck image.

Other Guidelines

 

  • Entries must be submitted as a scalable vector graphic in EPS format and also as a JPG. Entries must include the name, age, address, phone number and email address of the designer.
  • The logo should translate well into both color and black and white as well as into different sizes.

 

 

  • Only original logos may be entered and designers should take care to ensure that their entries are in no ways similar to existing logos or other copyrighted images.

 

 

  • Each designer may submit a maximum of three entries.

CapMac Returns! @CapMacDC

CapMac has a new operator (Josh) and is currently soft-opening in the District. They aren’t announcing locations just yet because they need time to get in the groove of things. :-) So, if you happen to see CapMac, wish them a warm welcome back! I will start tracking them on the map again once they give me the green light.
