Popular street food vendor plans permanent venue in Ballina
TRIED, tested and successful mobile street food vendors are broadening their horizons, and leasing a shopfront in Ballina.
Lennox Smokin' Barrel, a mobile smoking trailer serving American-style barbecue and smoked cuisine formerly from Sharpes Beach, is poised to be a permanent fixture on Moon Street.
A development application has been lodged with Ballina Shire Council for a commercial kitchen at the new venue.
It will have an outdoor seating plan with a maximum capacity of 25.
According to DA documents, the business would operate 10am-5.30pm Monday to Friday, and 10am-2pm on Saturday.
"Our business model is to sell hot food direct to the public and our new 'Heat N Eat' product," the proponent said via the development application.
Some of the hearty options on offer include beef and pork barbecued ribs, pulled pork, jerk-rubbed chicken and the pair's popular smoked bacon.
They will still offer the crowd favourites, along with new treats.
