Adiós Amigo: The Taco Truck Closing Its Doors

We were sad to learn this morning that The Taco Truck will be closing its doors this week. This one will be tough to swallow. They announced today that as of Sunday, TTT will no longer be serving their kickass tacos and other authentic Mexican goodies in their Hoboken store or via their mobile food truck.

Founders Jason and Chris started The Taco Truck with an actual truck driving around New Jersey in 2009. Since then, they have opened numerous brick and mortar locations in Hoboken, Morristown, Princeton, and King of Prussia. It’s not easy to taco ’bout, but all other locations are officially closed as of today.

An official statement we received from The Taco Truck CEO:

It is with a very heavy heart that we share that The Taco Truck will be closing its doors. Despite all of our successes over the last ten years, we have endured tremendous business challenges that we simply could not overcome.

When we launched The Taco Truck, our mission was to provide our guests with an authentic Mexican street food experience and we’ve been lucky enough to do just that, serving this community millions of tacos and smiles.

Our locations in Philly, Morristown and Princeton have also closed. Hoboken, our truck and catering gigs will continue to serve through end of day Sunday.

Thank you for supporting us all of these years.

– Jason Scott, CO-Founder & CEO of The Taco Truck

¡Hasta luego!
