This strategic move aims to make way for a new tenant to take the reins of the terminal’s concessions in time for the upcoming summer season.

The decision to exit the Cape May Ferry Terminal comes after Exit Zero Hospitality’s innovative and successful tenure, during which they transformed the terminal into a vibrant hub for locals and tourists alike.

Jack Wright, the owner of Exit Zero, reflected on this journey, stating, “Creating the proposal for the ferry terminal in early 2021 was one of the most exciting and invigorating projects I’ve ever worked on.”

He continued by saying; “But we believe the time is right for a new hospitality group to come in and continue the evolution of this fantastic waterfront site. We are going to turn our focus fully back on Exit Zero Filling Station and will be announcing exciting new plans for our publishing side of the business.”

Heath Gehrke, Director of Ferry Operations for the DRBA, expressed gratitude for Exit Zero’s contributions, saying, “The Exit Zero team brought a lot of creativity and energy to the terminal. We’re grateful for the work they put into this project and look forward to handing the baton over to a new partner.”

While Exit Zero Hospitality prepares to bid adieu to the Cape May Ferry Terminal, they are not leaving without celebrating the exciting events that will unfold during the upcoming fall and winter seasons at Ferry Park.
