Southern Tier Provisions is a second-generation,
family-owned pizza and Italian foods distribution
business located in Bath. Since its start in 1980, the
company has built a network of customers within a
250-mile radius in both New York and Pennsylvania.
The property in Bath also includes a store for local
residents who want to purchase deli meats and
cheeses or bulk frozen foods.
After learning about its expansion plans, the IDA staff
suggested that the owners apply for a grant through the
state's Consolidated Funding Application process.
A grant application to assist with the expansion of
the company's warehousing area, purchase new coolers
and create a commercial showroom was submitted
through the Southern Tier Regional Economic
Development Council and approved by its members.
IDA staff and company owners are awaiting final
approval at the state level.
The Olde Country Store & More Est. 1849 takes visitors
back to their childhood days with over 180 candies
available by the piece. The store also sells local goods
and crafts alongside authentic German products. The
Wells family re-opened the North Cohocton store in
June 2015 and displays some of the historic artifacts
that were found on the property. IDA staff has been
working with the owners to protect the historical nature
of the building that dates back to 1849, and has also
provided connections to other partner agencies to assist
with start-up business issues such as human resources
and energy efficiency.
