“We’re going to build a bar and indoor seating, but we’re not planning on having a liquor permit at this point. Maybe down the road,” Lange told WCPO.

Although there won’t be a commercial kitchen at the West Chester Twp. facility — which means the food truck operators will need to cook in their trucks — it will have the rest of the support structure for a food truck operation, WCPO reports.
