Kenneth Lewis has long enjoyed cooking and figured he might as well launch his own business utilizing those talents.
House of Bacon, along Route 44 near Elimsport, is a combination food stand and catering service.
"Pulled pork (sandwich) is probably my biggest seller," he said.
Kenneth Lewis stands next to his business, House of Bacon Catering. In addition to catering services, the Elimsport-based business opens five days a week outside Drop Tine Archery in Elimsport.
He also features such belly-busting food fare as the Big Boy Bacon Burger challenge and the Triple Bypass Hot Dog.
The latter, he said, is a hot dog stuffed with cheese and wrapped in bacon.
Then there's the Death by Hot Dog, a bacon-wrapped, beer-battered frankfurter.
Lewis, 22, a graduate of South Williamsport Area High School, can be found five days a week staffing his mobile food stand outside Drop Tine Archery.
Customers can order up food or ice cream and sit outside on a picnic table.
"A lot of people like the scenery," Lewis said, looking out at the nearby hills. "Right now, I'm kind of settled here."
He draws from a customer base that includes patrons of Drop Tine Archery.
Since starting up the business in March he's catered a number of events.
He said he can serve up to 600 people for any one event.
Lewis's brother Justin helps him with the business, which he hopes to eventually expand. He gained experience working in restaurants as a cook and manager. But he's been into cooking since he was "a little kid."
So far, he likes where the business is taking him.
"I enjoy it," he said. "I especially enjoy the customer feedback."
As the owner, he gets to take part in all facets of the business. He said while he plans to grow his business, he never wants to get too big.
"I want it always to be a personalized experience," he explained.
Bringing customers a quality product, he said, is his goal.
"I have worked at several restaurants where it became about numbers instead of quality," he said.
Hours are 12:30 to 8 p.m. Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
The business is closed Wednesdays and Sundays.
House of Bacon will hold an open house Aug. 4 from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The event will include a barbeque cook-off challenge with cash prizes and gift certificates.
