HARRISBURG, Pa. (WHTM) — A potato-themed food truck will officially be opening its first brick-and-mortar restaurant next weekend.

Potato Coop began as a food truck, which was first launched back in 2013 by Perry County native Allen Peck. According to Peck, what began as a mission to offer the best french fries in the Midstate quickly expanded into offering a full menu made up of savory American classics.

Currently, the food truck serves and offers catering opportunities for events that fall within a 50-mile radius of Harrisburg. For more information on having your event catered by this local eatery on wheels, you can click here.

“After a decade of operating the food truck, taking the next step and opening a brick and mortar restaurant is incredibly exciting,” Peck said in an email. “It’s a significant milestone that opens up new opportunities for growth, menu expansion, and an enhanced dining experience for our customers. I am proud.”

The new restaurant’s menu will feature some of the long-time favorites from the food truck while also incorporating some new menu items as well.

According to Peck, the new Potato Coop restaurant is 1,400 square feet in size and will have seating available for 24 customers on the inside and another 44 on the outside.
