Big things are happening in the Gainesville area, and Tupelo Honey Southern Kitchen & Bar is a part of the mix.
Atlanta-based Branch Properties announced that the Southern cuisine restaurant will join the tenant lineup at Limestone Marketplace, a forthcoming 76,764-square-foot Publix-anchored shopping center in Gainesville, Georgia, located at the signalized intersection of Limestone Parkway (US Hwy 129/S.R. 11) and New Holland Way. Construction is underway, and the restaurant will open in late 2024 as the center is slated to deliver in late summer 2024.
Tupelo Honey will join the development in a 5,600-square-foot space featuring its signature Southern-inspired interiors and a large outdoor patio.
“Our goal is to curate a lineup of desirable, high-quality tenants that cater to the surrounding community’s needs,” said Brett Horowitz, partner at Branch. “Tupelo Honey’s sophisticated yet comfortable, hospitality-driven atmosphere is the ideal addition to Limestone Marketplace, and we know it will be well received by the neighborhood. We have seen heavy interest from a variety of business types in leasing space at the center and look forward to announcing more tenants in the near future.”
Tupelo Honey is an Asheville, North Carolina-based restaurant chain specializing in Southern cuisine, offering breakfast, lunch, and dinner at 21 locations nationwide. Tupelo Honey’s new site in Gainesville will provide the same made-from-scratch food, drinks, and hospitality it has crafted for over 23 years.
“We were so impressed with Gainesville and the plan for high-quality shopping and dining in Limestone Marketplace that we immediately knew we wanted to be a part of this growing and thriving community,” said Christin Prince, senior vice president of marketing at Tupelo Honey. “Tupelo Honey’s great scratch-made southern fare is the perfect complement to the marketplace’s vision and for our new neighbors of Gainesville.”
Gainesville’s Limestone Marketplace will also include a 54,964-square-foot Publix Super Market in addition to 21,800 square feet of inline retail space for restaurants, service providers, and retailers, including SuperChix, Jersey Mike’s, and Apollo Nail Spa.
