The Taco Truck has closed all of its locations, including its eatery at the Princeton Shopping Center, and has shut down its food truck business as well. A message posted on the website this month informed Taco Truck fans of the closures.
“It is with a heavy heart that we inform you that The Taco Truck has closed its doors. For the last decade, it has been our pleasure to serve you, and be an integral part of your community — not just as your taco crew but as your friends and neighbors. For that we will always be grateful,” the note reads.
“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 so. You all have made this chapter unforgettable,” the note reads. “We thank you for the memories, laughs and millions of tacos served and are forever in your gratitude.”
Sources said the company’s owners decided to part ways.
The Taco Truck was a popular vendor at area events and food truck fests, dishing up Mexican taqueria favorites. The company opened its first taco truck in Jersey City in 2009, and later opened brick-and-mortar locations, including the Princeton eatery at the shopping center on Harrison Street in December of 2014.The space was previously a Learning Express store. Shortly after the Taco Truck opened, the longtime shopping center tenant Taste of Mexico moved out of the center.
