Investing in South Milwaukee: Big Renovations Underway at McDonald’s, ALDI


Two South Chicago Avenue retailers — McDonald’s and ALDI — are getting a new look, as businesses continue to step up their investments in South Milwaukee.

From the Steren Management Company and Jeff Steren, who owns 13 area McDonald’s …

Big changes are underway at McDonald’s of South Milwaukee. When the dining room re-opens this weekend, customers will enjoy a fresh new look with modern décor and also some cool tech features.

Customers will be welcomed to experience the future with touch-screen ordering kiosks. However, there is no need to worry if you are not the tech-savvy type. You’ll always have the option to order old-style with a real person at the counter.

Another great tech upgrade will be GPS table tents. The table tents will enable the McDonald’s crew to quickly deliver your food order to wherever you are seated.

Grand Re-Opening Specials will begin at Noon on June 12 (Tuesday), with a ribbon cutting by the mayor and local McDonald’s Owner Operator Jeff Steren. Free celebration cake and cookies will immediately follow the ribbon cutting. 

Watch for a flyer at the restaurant with more details.

As for the work underway at ALDI, here is a statement from Atty McGrath, vice president, of the ALDI Oak Creek Division.

We are excited to confirm that the ALDI store in South Milwaukee will undergo remodeling later this summer. The location will temporarily close for about one month leading up to the Grand Reopening to finalize construction. We will be in touch with more details about the Grand Reopening celebration as the big day approaches!

The updated store will offer a smarter, faster and easier shopping experience. All of our remodeled stores maximize refrigerator space, and we’re using the additional cold storage to grow our already robust selections of fresh produce, dairy and meat. Remodeled stores also feature open ceilings, natural lighting and environmentally-friendly building materials such as recycled materials, energy-saving refrigeration and LED lighting.

Thanks for investing in South Milwaukee!

    Whatever happened to the ice cream shop that was opening on Milwaukee Ave by China Chef? I remember a blog post about that approximately a year ago, but haven’t seen anything since, and there doesn’t appear to be anything happening at the storefront.

    I hope Aldi’s installs a good camera in their parking lot. Something that will give a well defined picture and not a useless blurred image. They need to be part of the crime stopping efforts in South Milwaukee. If not, SM needs to put one on the sidewalk or street or wherever they can. Learn from the past SM!

      I agree with you Diane, I wrote them to request that they move Aldis’ next to the vacant buildings by Sunrise restaurant, more room, better parking,better lighting, and near the heart of town and senior apartments.

  3. Aldi store in South Milwaukee needs a few electric carts for disabled people. I love the store but have trouble walking it. Even with basket.
