Well, the news is out. Ray Ray’s is heading to Franklinton. Beginning Saturday, November 11, Ray Ray’s will be the designated food truck at Land-Grant Brewing, each week from Thursday through Sunday. Ray Ray’s will still maintain their Clintonville Food Truck and Westerville Walk-Up, which means more Ray Ray’s for everyone.

The brewery will also expand their hours, opening at 11:30 a.m. on Thursdays and Fridays to accommodate lunch and dinner services.

“I’m really excited to cook and serve my food down in Franklinton, right beside the best craft beer,” said Ray Ray’s Owner, James Anderson in a press release. “I love being part of the growth in such a cool part of town, and I feel at home here.”

The menu will include Ray Ray’s favorites including smoked ribs, jerk chicken, beef brisket, and pulled pork. There will also be some delicious new items exclusive to the Land-Grant location.

“I have been a fan of Ray Ray’s since the food truck first pulled up in Clintonville,” said Land-Grant President, Adam Benner. “So, adding a hog pit to our taproom is pretty surreal and we feel very, very honored. I’ve always said that Barbecue is my favorite food group, and strongly believe Land-Grant will be a great home for Ray Ray’s.”

Land-Grant is hosting a Grand Opening celebration to welcome Ray Ray’s on November 11th. One week later, on Friday, November 17th, fans can check out Ray Ray’s when it is featured on the Food Network series Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.

Ray Ray’s at Land-Grant will be open Thursday through Sunday from 11:30 a.m. until 8 p.m. beginning November 11, 2017.
