Tampa, FL (September 9, 2016) – Focus Development (Focus), a leading construction firm headquartered in the Tampa area, has completed construction of the Newk’s Eatery at the Mall at University Town Center. The restaurant will open on September 12.
The new Sarasota location will be Newk’s second restaurant in the Tampa Bay area. The first location, built by Focus, debuted in Clearwater this past December. Focus is currently building its fifth Newk’s Eatery on University Blvd. in Orlando. These new restaurants play a large part in Newk’s overall goal to open as many as 30 new restaurants in the Sunshine State within the next five years.
Located at 5405 University Parkway, Sarasota’s Newk’s Eatery will offer indoor dining for 140 guests and patio dining for nearly 50 more in its 4,500 square-foot space.
In discussing the Sarasota project, Chris McAdams, president of Focus Development, said, “Focus Development is excited to deliver this new Newk’s Eatery in the Sarasota area bringing fresh and flavorful foods – served quickly.”
