No Place Like It On The Palouse
“We are highly focused on providing a casual, fun communal experience with dishes carefully prepared from the freshest ingredients. We have our own house salad dressings, pickles, jam – things you cannot find any place else. Like our facility, they’re unique, distinctive, memorable and leave a lasting impression on our customers and the community.
Our 7-cuisine food hall offers customers a way to assemble a multi-course meal from selections not usually found in the same restaurant – Puerto Rican dishes, burgers, chicken, salad & grain bowls , pizza, common desserts, coffee, tea & smoothies. We make every effort to ensure our ingredients are responsibly sourced from as many local vendors as possible and as fresh as possible.” Jenny Finau, General Manager and wearer of many hats.
Get Ready For Summertime And Live Music
“Every Friday night, 7-10 pm, from June through September, we will host a live music event in our Wellhouse Park and outside patio. The full schedule and artists will be posted on our website and Facebook page” said Jenny Finau.
For The Love Of Pullman
Opened in 2018, the Lumberyard Food Hall is the brainchild of Greg Petry (LinkedIn) WSU real estate and finance graduate with 20+ years successfully developing commercial real estate in Seattle and Portland. He was looking for a location to open a “food venue” when a friend sent him a listing for a lumberyard property in Pullman.
He made the purchase and began developing it into a series of complimentary food and beverage establishments, full bar, gaming area, outdoor and enclosed patio seating and a children’s corner. By any measure, Lumberyard Food Hall is exceptional and one of the first to include the sights and sounds of Paradise Creek in the customer’s experience.
Managing the conversion of a 1950s era Quonset hut and former lumberyard warehouse into a large food hall and event center, including a 14,000 square foot restaurant, with multi-cuisine kitchens, 2 bars, ½ acre outside patio, live event center with over 50 employees and occupancy for 400 people, was not the largest project Greg had ever completed.
Three Years In The Making
“Because of the extensive remodeling, and the age of the original building it was important to us that components of the original structure that made it look like and feel like a lumber yard needed to be kept as close to the original as possible. The attention to detail we wanted and the various things we discovered along with the permitting requirements required to transform a lumber yard into a multi-cuisine restaurant, were extensive. The project took 3 years which was longer than we had planned. During that time, we received expert help and constant encouragement from our community, including the Chamber of Commerce.” Jenny Finau.
