From a story on greenvilleonline.com: Couple converting vacant Travelers Rest storefront to bakery, bistro | The Greenville News | GreenvilleOnline.com

"The couple describes Upcountry Provisions as a Midwestern concept that’s fairly new to this area.

“Provision is any kind of food or supplies. It’s pretty broad and allows us to have a lot of flexibility on what our offerings are going to be,” said Stephen Kraus, a native of St. Louis, Mo. “We can do baked goods, cheeses, dry goods or anything without having to say we’re just a bakery, a sandwich shop or pizza shop.”

Upcountry Provisions can “kind of tailor our offerings to what Travelers Rest needs, what the demand is in addition to doing our bakery and bistro,” Cheryl Kraus said.

All the bakery work will be done near the large window in front of the building so that passersby can see the work being done.

“The customers can feel like they’re part of the process. There’s a level of trust there, to be able to see their food being made,” Stephen Kraus said."

I like the idea. It makes me wish I lived closer to TR. However, I wonder how much business they'll get in TR? Leopard Forest and the Cafe seem to get good business...

They should be different enough to do well I'd think.

That sounds like a good fit. I go to both Williams and Leopard Forest, but a good bakery would add another dimension to downtown. Williams in particular seems to be doing very well, and they've reached out to trail riders with bike racks and water bottle filling station. A number of people on the trail come in.

Wish they called it Upstate Provisions, not Upcountry, very few people refer to this area as the Upcountry.

I believe they're probably thinking "upcountry" better suits the location and more outdoorsy types that frequent the SRT and nearby Sunrift Adventures.

Then there's the Upcountry History Museum near downtown Greenville...

I love the irony of your post coming from UpstateBooster.
