SISTERS, Ore (KTVZ) --The Barn, a new food cart lot, is coming to Sisters, aiming to provide a variety of dining options for residents and visitors alike.
The 10,000-square-foot lot will feature new and established businesses from around Central Oregon and will include a two-story barn that houses a bar, along with indoor seating.
The Barn is scheduled to open on East Main Avenue on Thursday, Nov. 4.
The food lot's owner said Monday it was created to help incorporate the diverse food options coming into the Sisters community.
Daniel St. Lawrence is in the food cart business and wants to provide the Sisters community with a food venue that offers shelter in the winter and an open area for the summertime.
“There’s three different fire pit zones. There’s a stage that will be in the corner, and then all these little booths that are built into the property,” Lawrence said on a tour of the location.
Inside the barn will be a bar and seating for those who choose to dine indoors. Lawrence also included a dishwashing facility for the food trucks to share.
“We know what food truck lots need for the food trucks to be successful-- and so we really tried to address those key issues for the food trucks to really thrive at the barn,” Lawrence said.
Lawrence says the food options will be diverse ,with choices that include southern barbecue, tacos and global fusion wraps.
Pop's Southern BBQ, Chulitas, Wrap Stars and Boone Dog Pizza will be the food options available at The Barn.
Some outside tables will act as pay stations with QR codes, allowing customers to order drinks from the bar.
A stage also will be built so musicians can play for the outdoors crowd.
Lawrence envisioned to create a space that can act as a location for date nights and family outings.
“There will be a sand pit and a kids' play area, with a little booth for families to be able to be close and watch and engage with the kids,” Lawrence said.
