Beltway Bistro Food Truck to Reopen

Beltway Bistro will soon reopen, several months after the food truck was stolen in Silver Spring and later found completely stripped in Charles County.

“It’s been a long road back and I’m happy to say we are opening for business!”, owner James Turner announced yesterday on Facebook. “For the moment the food truck can operate in Montgomery County. Still working on clearance in neighboring counties. We will keep you updated on our progress.”

James Turner, a restaurant veteran with more than 30 years of experience, had recently received a license from the county to begin operating as Beltway Bistro when the vehicle was taken.

The truck, which was reported missing on Memorial Day, was found in Charles County on June 3 of last year, badly damaged and completely stripped of equipment. According to reports, Turner had spent more than $50,000 on the truck.

A GoFundMe campaign was launched shortly thereafter and raised nearly $60,000. Catalyst Hot Dogs owner Chris Van Jura jumped in to help, with his hot dog truck donating $1 from every hot dog sold during a two-week period last June.
