After Only Six Months, Scottsdale's Prime Provisions to Close on Sunday
Prime Provisions, we hardly knew ye.
Opened in May, the locavore-loving deli, on the southwestern corner of Frank Lloyd Wright Boulevard and Scottsdale Road, is shuttering on Sunday afternoon.
Owned by Rick Fredrickson (and his first restaurant), Prime Provisions featured a breakfast and lunch menu of salads, sandwiches (including a build-your-own option), pasta, and soups. Ingredients were sourced from local farms, businesses, and distribution channels. Arizona beers and wines were available as well.
It sure sounded like a good idea. So what happened?
"The business was doing great," Fredrickson told me, "but our main investor decided to relocate his assets and we had to close."
Fredrickson, although disappointed, went on to say that he hopes to start over again somewhere new.
"I want to show people that it doesn't cost more to eat local," he said. "And it's good for the community, too."
