SISTERS, Ore (KTVZ) –The Barn, a new batch of food carts, is coming to Sisters, with the goal of providing a variety of dining options for residents and visitors alike.
The 10,000-square-foot lot will feature new and established businesses from central Oregon and will include a two-story barn that houses a bar, as well as indoor seating.
The barn is scheduled to open on East Main Avenue on Thursday, November 4.
The owner of the food bundle said on Monday that it was created to help integrate the various food options to come in the sisters’ community.
Daniel St. Lawrence is in the food cart business and wishes to provide the Sisters community with a food court that provides shelter in the winter and an open area for the summer.
“There are three different focus zones. There’s a scene that’s going to be around and then all these little cabins that are built into the property, ”Lawrence said on a site visit.
Inside the barn there will be a bar and seating for those who choose to dine inside. Lawrence also included a dishwashing facility for the food trucks to share.
“We know what lots of food trucks need for food trucks to be successful – and so we really tried to address these key issues to make food trucks really thrive in the barn,” Lawrence said.
Lawrence says food options will be diverse, with choices including southern barbecue, tacos and global fusion wraps.
Pop’s Southern BBQ, Chulitas, Wrap Stars and Boone Dog Pizza will be the dining options available at The Barn.
Some outdoor tables will act as payment terminals with QR codes, allowing customers to order drinks from the bar.
A stage will also be built for musicians to perform for the outdoor crowd.
Lawrence considered creating a space that could serve as a meeting place and family outing.
“There will be a sandbox and a children’s play area, with a small booth for families to be close, watch and engage with the kids,” Lawrence said.
