Fuquay Varina’s Corner Boys BBQ, a popular food truck and catering company, will set up shop at the PopUp @ American Tobacco Campus, July 3-26.

Meet the owner, James Sampson

With roots in the community, founder and owner James Sampson got his start as a self-taught chef by sourcing and selling the meat and produce he would find at local produce stands and farmers markets. Popularity and demand grew and soon Sampson found his food in high demand for events and began to travel around the Triangle bringing what he describes as an “innovative and soulful take on common food with a magical touch.”

He adds, “The move to the PopUp is the continuation of a dream becoming a reality. I’ve worked so hard to build this business by not sacrificing my mission of feeding people delicious food they know in new and delightful ways.”

Where to find the popup

The PopUp@ATC is located next to the Bullpen, adjacent to Bull City Mini – a community-designed mini golf course that will offer beer and wine. Each hole in the course is inspired by Durham and is designed by people that know Durham best – its people.
