Jarhead’s food cart should open next month

Keenan Poore plans to open Jarhead's, a new Wichita food cart, in August.

A new hot dog cart called Jarhead’s should roll into Wichita sometime next month.

It will sell high-quality bratwurst, sauerkraut, Italian sausage, Polish sausage, hot dogs and possibly pulled pork.

Keenan Poore, a former youth pastor and former member of the Marine Corps, is working now to get his new mobile food business going, he said. He plans to start with a cart he’ll park various places around Wichita during lunch hours and in Old Town on weekend evenings. He’s also working on finding a trailer that he could eventually house the business in, giving it more of a food truck feel.

Poore, who lives in Andover, describes himself as a food enthusiast who’s always dreamed of owning a food establishment. He was inspired by the food truck fad that’s recently hit Wichita.

“The fad is early in Wichita,” he said. “This is probably a good time to jump in  and get a head of it a little bit.”

I’ll keep you updated on Jarhead’s progress.
