WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) -- The owners of Guac Box Food Truck are saying farewell to their business. This comes just a few months after they opened their restaurant space in West Lafayette.
The good news for customers, Guac Box is not going anywhere. The owners are currently looking for new owners to take over.
The restaurant has only been open since November that's why owners say this new chapter is bitter-sweet.
"This is me, this is all owned and paid for by me so, I mean, it can go anywhere but I'd love to see a hometown location stay," said Matt Bestich, owner of The Guac Box.
Bestich and his wife are moving to the West coast for a different job opportunity but he's still dedicated to the plan he's had for Guac Box since its opening.
"Become a staple for Purdue, and then I think if we can do that then we can show other college campuses that this is the new national taco shop that everybody's going to want," said Bestich.
He has hired a new chef but he's still looking for an owner to take over the restaurant and food truck. He's seeking someone local to the Greater Lafayette area.
"Somebody local that loves to cook and loves to be community-driven because I think that's where we found our space in all of this is through the community," said Bestich.
As for the flavors people know and love at Guac Box, Bestich said that's not going anywhere.
"I have all the recipes, they're all created by me and they will stay," said Bestich. "I did hire a chef out of Indianapolis, he's going to replace me. He's really good, really capable and I think he's going to grow into a great position."
Bestich is grateful for those who've stuck with him up to this point.
"I love you and thank you for all your support," said Bestich.
