THE DELICIOUS line up of street food traders at STACK Lincoln has just been unveiled, with everything from USA favourites to gourmet French fries.

The transformation of the former Argos Store at St Mark’s shopping Centre is already complete, with the doors soon to be open on the unique leisure hub which will offer live entertainment, street food and bars.

And developers and owners, STACK, have revealed the first bunch of food operator who will be bringing a unique flavour to the development.

Well loved Lincolnshire street food operator, The Barbell Burger Co, will now find a new home at STACK Lincoln, alongside Oh La La Loaded Fries, which are renowned for their generous potato and halloumi fries, covered in a range of delicious toppings.

Specialist pulled pork creators, The Cheesy Pig, are also setting up shop at STACK, offering a range of pulled pork rolls & loaded fries which combines the classic pulled meat  with a thick cheese panade, homemade sauce and a range of other mouthwatering ingredients.

That includes offerings such as The Pig Mac - pulled pork topped with macaroni cheese, baconaise and streak bacon crumbs - and The Notorious PIG - pulled pork, cheese sauce, waffle fries, "BIG poppa sauce", onion and bacon crumbs.

Sam Smith, owner of The Cheesy Pig said that everyone “was really excited to have secured a permanent spot at STACK Lincoln.”

“This will give us the chance to share our mouthwatering menu with a wider audience and show them that we provide some of the best street food around,” he said.

“Having built a loyal fan base in and around our local Lincolnshire area as well as further afield, this opportunity now gives our 'Cheesy Pig Army' a place they can get their fix seven days a week, any time of the year.” 

Acropolis Street Food – a firm favourite at various locations including at STACK Seaburn in Sunderland – will be bringing their amazing selection of Greek specialities, while ZZA will be providing a range of authentic Italian pizzas.

Holy Duck, which sells duck wraps and loaded fries has also confirmed it will be opening up at the venue, as will YOLO Coffee and Kitchen which will be open throughout the day serving breakfast, brunch and beverages.

Daniel Bellamy, who founded Barbell Burger Co in 2019, is also delighted to be opening at STACK Lincoln.

“This is an exciting new chapter in our journey,” he said.

“Since its inception, Barbell Burger Co has garnered a reputation for its commitment to quality and local ingredients, plus innovative flavour combinations.

“We’ll be bringing our well loved classics to STACK Lincoln as well as adding a couple of new combinations for the launch."

While only a couple of street food outlets remain, there is still an opportunity for anyone interested to be part of STACK Lincoln.

The company is looking for high end providers of food such as Mexican, Asian or fried chicken to complement the existing offer.

Neill Winch, CEO of STACK, believes that the traders who are coming into to STACK will provide the perfect balance.

“One of the secrets of STACK’s success is to offer an eclectic mix of food operators, so there is something for everyone,” he said.

“We feel we’re achieving that at Lincoln with a whole variety of different cuisines, some of whom are from Lincolnshire and want to be part of this exciting adventure.

“We are all very excited about moving towards the opening when everyone will be able to enjoy for themselves the delicious and varied food that will be on offer.”

Along with the food and drink outlets, STACK Lincoln will have a roof terrace, coffee shop and a central plaza with a stage for live entertainment.

The venue is one of a number of STACKs currently being created around the county, including two new venues in Newcastle – one a fanzone in conjunction with Newcastle United – Durham, Bishop Auckland, Whitley Bay, Carlisle, Manchester, Wigan, Leeds, Middlesbrough, Sheffield and Northampton.
