New Restaurant, Local Provisions, to Open at Tioga Town Center

Tioga Town Center welcomes Local Provisions, a locally owned neighborhood bar and grill focused on community, quality, and experience.

Gainesville, Fla. — Local Provisions recently announced plans to open at Tioga Town Center. Their new 4,100 square foot space is located at 13005 SW 1st Road, Suite 129, Newberry, FL 32669 and will offer a family friendly atmosphere with high-quality food and beverage at affordable prices.

The Local Provisions concept was created by the owners of The Swamp Restaurant, and aims to create a space where memories can be made. Their experience-driven restaurant will feature a seasonal menu, sourcing local items when possible. The menu was the result of collaboration efforts between The Swamp Restaurant Owners and Kres Chophouse Chef, Mary Fonseca. The menu will feature a variety of high-quality food items aimed to please all palates. There will also be gluten-free options and vegan options, in addition to a craft cocktail list, an extensive upscale wine list, as well as an extremely tempting dessert menu featuring wildly creative treats. Lunch and Dinner will be served daily, in addition to a weekend brunch. A number of grab-and-go items will be offered including to-go family meal options.

With a goal to create memorable experiences for all their guests, Local Provisions hopes to be the go-to place for game days, girl’s nights, events, special occasions, and celebrations. The restaurant plans to seamlessly blend indoor and outdoor dining spaces, and is currently in the process of expanding their outdoor area. Local Provisions will offer a causal atmosphere to enjoy time with family, friends, and colleagues for all sorts of occasions and hopes to bring the Gator spirit to Tioga. Televisions will be visible from all dining tables. Outdoor Fans, misters, and heaters will be in place on the patio to make each season more comfortable. There will also be a semi-private event space with audio & visual capabilities, suitable for all types of gatherings, from social to professional.

Wanting to join the dynamic rapid growth happening in the area, Local Provisions Owners quickly identified Tioga Town Center as the perfect location for their newest concept. “We want memories of your favorite birthday to be created here” said co-owner and co-founder Ryan Prodesky, he added, “we hope to be an oasis for a refreshing bite and beverage, like a country club without the fees. We can’t wait to serve all the nearby families and residents.”

“We are excited to announce the addition of Local Provisions to the Town Center” said Cheryl Carroll, Regional Asset Manager for Tioga Town Center and The Flats on behalf of Hankin Group. “Their family friendly concept will fit in perfectly at the Town Center, allowing friends and families to gather in their newly expanded indoor/outdoor patio dining option, which will be essential more so now than ever before.”
Local Provisions will be focused on quality food and beverage, and quality experience. They also hope to focus on giving back to the community. They plan to host multiple gala-style events in the near future to raise funds and awareness for local nonprofit organizations. The new Tioga Town Center restaurant is expected to be open before the end of the year.
