Bricks on Boundary could soon add a Bricks at Lowe's branch, as owner Josh Poticha is getting city approval to set up a food truck in the hardware store's parking lot.

One of the restaurant's signature Air Streamtrailers, which can be seen outside the 1422 Boundary St. location and at events around Beaufort, could have a home at the entrance to the parking lot at 207 Robert Smalls Parkway.

Poticha received approval Monday from the Zoning Board of Appeals. City Council approval is expected this month, and the trailer will be set up soon after.

The truck would serve breakfast and lunch with "high-end" sandwiches, Poticha said.

Poticha would rent the space for $650 a month and cater to store employees, customers and anyone else who stops in the parking lot.

The zoning board's approval was on the condition that the food truck could only use signs on the trailer and could not put them on Robert Smalls Parkway.

Poticha said he is talking with Lowe's about putting another food trailer at the home-improvement store's Bluffton location if the first spot proves successful.
