Food truck bound for southern end of The Villages passes initial state inspection

A food truck bound for the southern end of The Villages has passed its initial state inspection.

The Ednas’ Provisions and Vittles food truck on Monday won approval from a state inspector and no violations were found, according to a report on file with the Department of Business and Professional Regulation.

The mailing address for the food truck is now listed at 3121 County Road 216 in Oxford, a piece of property owned by Jordan McDonough. She also runs The Anglers Club at Lake Sumter Landing, the once-exclusive restaurant that at one time was reserved for top Villages brass.

The Ednas for whom the food truck is named are in honor of McDonough’s two grandmothers, both named Edna. 

Ednas’ Provisions & Vittles and a second food truck, Rita’s Cocina Mexicana, will be serving food at the Cattail Recreation Area in the Village of Marsh Bend. The food trucks are being dispatched to satisfy the appetites of Villagers in the newest section of Florida’s Friendliest Hometown. The lone golf-cart accessible restaurant there is the Fenney Grill. 

A Rita’s Cocina Mexicana will soon be serving food at the Cattail Recreation Center.

Rita’s Cocina Mexicana has obtained a Mobile Food Dispensing Vehicle license and passed its first inspection on May 10. The mailing address for Rita’s Cocina Mexicana is listed at 3093 Cichielo Court in the Oxford Oaks development, a family subdivision built by The Villages. The home at 3093 Cichielo Court is owned by Mid Florida Properties LLC, which is headquartered at 1020 Lake Sumter Landing, an office operated by The Villages.
