We were honored to be a part of such a wonderful history of the downtown Sarasota area and look forward to passing the torch to the new vendor."

Guli added, "We are excited to shift our focus to our new location for Lemon Tree Kitchen — we are actively seeking the perfect location where we can continue to develop the Lemon Tree Kitchen concept and make it even better."
