What happens when an old gas station outlives its usefulness? You repurpose it into another type of filling station. One Florida family did that by converting an old gas station into a restaurant in Trenton, KY. It's called the Black Sheep Bistro, and they serve barbecue with a twist.
The reason for the name? The owner is the self-described “black sheep” of his family and he decided to embrace the name for his new business. The old lift in the service station was raised and repainted to serve as a bar for patrons.
Considering it is the only bar in Trenton, this could be a big opportunity for the family. Currently they serve breakfast and lunch to locals, but hope to expand into catering.
