The Austin Ranch development in Plano wants to mimic the success of food truck parks with something a little more permanent.
Instead of trucks, developer Billingsley Co. will build six small restaurants that it calls shacks, the Dallas Morning News reports.
Four of them are already leased with Japanese food, burgers, Cajun, and tacos.
The shacks will be built from recycled materials. The 8-acre site near Plano Parkway and Windhaven will have patios for outdoor eating, a dog park and a volleyball court.
If the concept is successful, Billingsley plans to implement it in other developments, according to the Morning News.
