Sweet News for Downtown South Milwaukee

When it comes to the future of our downtown, to me, it’s all about sustainable small business. That’s why I’m so excited to share this sweet news …

Jen’s Sweet Treats is opening a second retail location at 907A Milwaukee Ave., starting May 1.

They will sell cupcakes, cookies, donuts, cakes, and other treats from the South Milwaukee store, while continuing to bake at their Cudahy location, 4745 S. Packard Ave.

This is a great addition to our city center, and joins Grillworks — the new restaurant opening at the former Grebe’s and Nona’s in April, I’m told — as two new local eating options.

Jennifer Clark opened Jen’s Sweet Treats, a family business in every since of the word, in 2014. A year later, the store was named the South Shore Chamber of Commerce’s Cudahy Business of the Year.

One reason why: its commitment to doing business the right way. The store gives back in so many ways, and you get a good sense of it from their Facebook page.  

Here is a message from Jennifer …

We are excited to bring all that we do to South Milwaukee.  We are looking forward to not only providing amazing sweet treats but continuing our “give back attitude” in our new neighborhood! South Milwaukee here we come! 

And we’re excited to have you. Welcome to South Milwaukee!

Honoring The Best Of Our Local Businesses

Market chamber award

Cudahy award St. Francis award

Congratulations to all of the businesses honored at Thursday’s South Shore Chamber of Commerce awards dinner!

In Cudahy, it was Jen’s Sweet Treats. And in St. Francis, it was PDQ Tooling.

I’m especially proud of the South Milwaukee award winner: the South Milwaukee Downtown Market.

It has been an honor to be a small part of this event’s success, and it is great to see it and the volunteers who drive it get the recognition they richly deserve.

The South Shore is on the rise, and it’s because of businesses like these.

Honoring Three Terrific Local Businesses, Including Our Farmers’ Market

Market committee Market 1

The South Shore Chamber of Commerce has announced it is honoring three local businesses at its Oct. 29 banquet — including one particularly near and dear to my heart: the South Milwaukee Downtown Market.

It, PDQ Tooling of St. Francis and Jen’s Sweet Treats of Cudahy will be honored at the annual awards dinner and silent auction at the Pulaski Inn.

Congratulations to all three businesses, especially our farmers’ market and the people who make it happen.

I am proud to have played a part in starting the market seven seasons ago, and I could not have predicted how big it has become. It’s humbling, and exciting, to see how far we’ve come … and where we’re headed.

We have one of the best markets in the region. Let’s all celebrate that.

Tickets for the dinner are still available for $40 each, or tables of eight for $320, and can be purchased through the chamber. The proceeds of silent auction will be for the SSCC Scholarship Fund to benefit South Shore seniors pursuing higher education. Silent auction donations can be delivered to The K-Ranch, BMO Harris Bank – Cudahy Branch, or by contacting the chamber 483-8615 for pick-up.
