TooJay's Original Gourmet Deli closed its Gainesville location after two years, citing economic difficulty.

The restaurant was located in the former Rafferty's location at 3410 Archer Road near the Regal Cinemas in Butler Plaza.

The company posted a note about the closing on its website: “We opened in March 2009 just as the dramatic economic downturn was taking hold. Unfortunately, due to the current economic conditions, this location is no longer viable.”

When the restaurant opened, the company planned to do a robust catering business for university functions. Many departments have cut back on catered celebrations amid state budget cuts.

TooJay's is based in West Palm Beach and has 25 locations in South and Central Florida.
