Here’s an interesting food approach worth noting: a new shipyard-themed dining concept, Cargo Food Authority, will have its soft opening today at Minneapolis’s Target Center.
Located in the old Hubert’s space at the corner of 1st Avenue and 6th Street, Cargo Food Authority will be accessible both from the street on a daily basis and Target Center for Minnesota Timberwolves and Minnesota Lynx games. Developed by Williston Holding Company’s Chief Development Officer Brian Ingram, the restaurant features food containers for Asian, tacos, wings and pizza, in addition to draft cocktails and local beers on tap, all in a shipping yard experience that includes pallet seating, large garage doors and industrial finishes. The restaurant includes a stage for live entertainment and games like beer pong and basketball hot shot. Graffiti from local artists is also featured at the restaurant.
Cargo Food Authority will be holding a grand opening event in December with details to be announced soon.
“Cargo Food Authority brings together a diverse range of international street food and drinks with a spacious shipping yard environment unlike anything in Minneapolis,” said Marcus Jundt, CEO of Williston Holding Company in a press statement. “We’re eager to open at Target Center and offer event-goers and downtown visitors a one-of-a-kind experience. We’re thrilled Brian is onboard and also working toward our next concept, Bus Stop Burgers & Brewhouse, to continue Williston Holding Company’s expansion plans.”
“One of the main goals of Target Center’s transformation over the past two years has been to improve the entertainment experience for our guests,” said David Schmid, Assistant General Manager of Target Center, in a press statement. “Cargo Food Authority does just that by providing new and innovative dining concepts and combining them with an urban décor that pays homage to both the history of the Warehouse District as well as the diversity of our Twin Cities community.”
