Celebrating Small Business At South Milwaukee’s Business Incubator

Thanks to Steve Fenno for hosting me at today’s Meet the Mayor session — and thanks for supporting small business at his self-described business incubator at 916 Milwaukee Ave.

Rocket apparel. Antiques. Disc golf accessories. Signs. Unique woodworking gifts. Firearm safety training. Dry cleaning. There’s even a guy in the basement who makes fishing lures.

In all, there are more than 10 small businesses located in this historic building in the heart of downtown, and it was great to meet so many people working to deliver unique goods and services through a really unique property.

Steve describes the Doyle and Fenno building as a “small business incubator center.”

The building owners and tenants consider themselves to be partners, working hard together to help each little business succeed.
