Fojol Brothers, circa 2012.

Washington City Paper reports Fojol Brothers, which we reviewed in 2012, closed the last of its three 60-something-year-old trucks this past Friday after the transmission finally died. The business’s other two trucks went off the road earlier this winter due to hefty repair costs and difficulty finding replacement parts. “The amount of money to keep them all running, we’re just not seeing the return,” founder Justin Vitarello told WCP. But the business isn’t closing up for good. Vitarello plans to experiment with a line of Fojol Brothers-branded products, including “lassipops, spiced rice flour chips, and jars of sauces and chutneys.”
