Cape Cod Dawgs started as a lesson in entrepreneurship. 
As we started planning the Cape Cod Beer Garden in 2013 we realized that there were very few mobile food trucks licensed in the town of Barnstable. So when we found this beauty, a 1979 Chevy powered Grumman Food Truck, on Craigslist it caught our eye.

At the same time we were also trying to help our (then) 14 year old son Jacob, find his first summer job. Suddenly a crazy idea came to our head.. we’d buy the hot dog truck and help Jacob and 3 friends run it all summer parked in front of the brewery. That idea has become Cape Cod Dawgs.

Cape Cod Dawgs has been a successful venture ever since. In 2014 it was run once again by Jacob Marcus and 3 friends.  Jacob has now moved on as he prepares for college .  His younger brother Harrison Marcus now works there along with several area teens.

Today: The Dawgs truck is in its 5th season and is run by 5 area teens; Harry, Cait, Maggie, Hannah and Molly.  Stop by and see them, ask them what it’s like to run their own business, and grab a great lunch or snack…you’ll be glad you did!
