One could say that BG’s Food Cartell at The Round was more than 100 years in the making.
The assembly of food carts — it’s Beaverton’s first cart pod — landed last month at 4250 S.W. Rose Biggi Ave., at The Round. If the street name sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the site of the Biggi Family’s former home and horseradish farm.
Which effectively makes the site the launching pad for the Beaverton Foods empire, with its award-winning mustards and other beloved condiments. The Biggi family has owned the property since the early 1900s.
Domonic Biggi, the company’s CEO, is working with his siblings Dana, who’s the leasings/vendor manager, and Dean, the operating partner on the effort, which hosts 31 carts. The pod is open between 7 a.m. and 10 p.m. Monday through Saturday and 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays.
The whole operation honors the Biggi family’s legacy in the city and at the site. The BG’s Food Cartel At The Round logo has a rose in it. And, the carts themselves provide an array of international options, much like the Beaverton Foods line itself.
Vendors include the Argentinian option Abuela Chona, the Guam cart Marianas and the Germab cart Altengartz.
The site further features The Speakeasy, an indoor/outdoor bar serving beer and wine. The site is bike- and light-rail friendly.
