BAYSIDE UPDATE: Popular deli opening second location

Northland Enterprises continues effort to bolster neighborhood

(Portland, Maine) A busy, locally-owned eatery in Falmouth will be opening a second location in Portland’s burgeoning Bayside neighborhood, at 200 Kennebec Street, across the street from Century Plaza.

Peter Leavitt loves making great food.

Northland Enterprises, LLC, a commercial real estate development company based in Portland, announced that it has reached a lease agreement with Leavitt & Sons, a popular deli just off U.S. Route 1 in Falmouth, at 37 Depot Road. Josh Benthien, a partner at Northland, said the addition of Leavitt & Sons advances Northland’s effort to help community efforts to revitalize Bayside.

“This is a distinctive eatery, locally-owned by somebody with a great reputation, and who consistently puts out a quality product,” Benthien said. “We know our neighbors are encouraging a community feel in this area, and this will help.”

Peter Leavitt owns and operates the Falmouth deli, and said he will personally direct the company’s expansion. “Leavitt’s and Bayside are a perfect match. I like the visibility there, and the positive energy that is very obvious in that area. Bayside is clearly on the upswing,” Leavitt said. Leavitt expects to open for business later in 2017. The deli will join other businesses that Northland has attracted to the neighborhood, including Chipotle and a T-Mobile retail store. Century Plaza is the former Century Tire property on Marginal Way. Century Tire closed in February 2014 after almost 90 years in business.

Northland Enterprises has been managing and re-developing commercial real estate since 2001, in Maine communities and several others in the northeast Unites States. It is based in Portland, Maine.

Leavitt & Sons Deli is opening a Portland location in 2017.
