The Fort Adams Trust has entered into a partnership with Blackstone Caterers to provide food and beverage at Fort Adams State Park through Blackstone Caterers’ brand new food truck. The name of the food truck is “A Fork in the Road” and is located right in front of the Fort Adams’ Visitors Center. The food truck is further identified by having an actual oversized dining fork cemented right by the road so it is literally and figuratively a fork in the road. The new food truck will be there on a daily basis starting in June into the fall with hours of 11 AM to 5:00 PM. The “Fork in the Road” will be serving beverages such as coffee, juices, sodas, hot and cold food ranging from breakfast items to sandwiches, hamburgers and salmon platters with the specials changing.
“We had given serious thought to developing a more mobile way to feature our catering services at events and the chance to be out at Fort Adams made for the perfect opportunity,” stated John Edick Blackstone Caterers owner/general manager. “We will have quality freshly made food and beverages that Blackstone Caterers are known for in a great environment with picnic tables and beautiful views of Narragansett Bay. The “A Fork in the Road” name and the giant fork add a nice whimsical way to unveil the new service,” he added.
“Each day we will be providing specialty items that will be continually changing to provide an appealing variety of savory dishes to choose from,” expressed Briana Williams, “A Fork in the Road” Food Truck Manager.
“By bringing Blackstone Caterers out to the fort it truly completes the entire Fort Adams experience and now allows us to offer food and beverage from a reputable and known provider,” commented David Martland, president of the Fort Adams Trust. “So if you want to visit Fort Adams you no longer have to be concerned about packing up food and drink as it will all be right here whether you want to go on tours or just have a picnic,” he added.
