CapMac will call it quits this week after three years of serving Cheez-It coated mac and cheese in the District.

Owners announced the end of CapMac through a Facebook post Wednesday. The truck will make its last appearance at Farragut Square on Friday – the same spot it launched in 2010.

That post doesn’t hint at why owner Brian Arnoff will close up shop, but it does signal the possibility for new ventures in the future.

“We’re not saying goodbye, we’re saying ‘see you later’. We have our eyes set on new and opportunities in the future and we’ll be sure to keep everyone updated on our next move,” the post said.

The macaroni masters have earned a name on campus through “GWU Thursdays” with lines forming along H Street as early as 11 a.m. CapMac added a Saturday visit to campus this fall.

GW students and faculty earned a shoutout in the post for their “unmatched loyalty” in the post.

“Thanks for being the best brand ambassadors a small business could ask for,” the post said.
