Permits have been filed for Savi Provisions to open a new location at 1050 Howell Mill.
The store will reportedly be doing an extensive build-out with new plumbing, electrical, mechanical, partitions, doors, and more.
Savi Provisions Founder Paul Nair said he just filed the permits this week but was hoping to open by the fall.
“That might be a little ambitious,” he admitted.
Savi Provisions will open in Buckhead later this summer. Franchisee Vivek Patel will be heading this one.
A neighborhood destination for locally-sourced gourmet and organic foods, fine wines, and spirits, Savi Provisions describes itself as the nostalgic purveyor of once-forgotten generations. It aims to provide a high-end and gourmet, wholesome and healthy food and market experience combined with Atlanta’s need for convenience within their neighborhoods.
Nair said the new location is poised to be even more of a high-end grocery featuring a lot of local and regional produce.
“At 5,000 square feet it will be bigger than a typical layout,” he added. “We want to expand our offering and groceries and will have an outdoor patio and mezzanine seating.”
Heading for West Midtown Atlanta Savi Provisions appears to be heading for Star Metals, a mixed-use project.
Nair said he is seeking a beer and wine license as well as a specialty food license.
