Jonathan and Yadira Barbosa, from Mapleton, thought for a year about opening their food truck, Los Tres Pollitos.
Yadira’s home-cooked meals have been enjoyed by many people, Jonathan said.
“When my brothers come hunting, they seemed to enjoy it,” Jonathan said. “And we did a fundraiser for a local church.”
They parked the food truck in Bronson on weekends when it worked with his schedule, he said.
“We are positioned at the old service station on the highway. 54 in Bronson,” he said. “The property is owned by Perry’s of Perry’s Pork Rinds.”
They also do catering.
“We also implemented at Uniontown Elementary School their continuing education for teachers (in October),” he said.

“There are a lot of options and the prices depend on what they would like,” Jonathan said.

Yadira is the sister of Lupe Santana, owner of La Hacienda restaurant in Fort Scott. Both brother and sister are from central Mexico.
