Kelly Norton has decided to convert his food truck business into a drive-through eatery with indoor seating.

Norton, who has operated Bare Bones Bar B Q for five years, is busy moving into the Shell gas station building at 4240 Meridian St. Norton is currently waiting for final permit inspections before moving in, so for now the truck is at that location serving beef and pork sandwiches from 10 a.m. until around 4 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. Once the inspections are completed in a few weeks, Norton plans to offer a drive-through service and expanding hours to 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. Wednesday through Saturday. He also plans on opening an espresso stand, which will be open every day.

While he enjoyed the mobile truck business, Norton believes customers will appreciate the indoor seating, particularly in the winter. Updates about the indoor opening can be found on the company’s Facebook page.
