Dear Friends,

Hello Milwaukee! Unfortunately, we are still closed this week. It was not our intention be closed for this long and we apologize for any inconvenience this has caused. It was a difficult decision after weeks of consistently losing money with less traffic, increased food costs and the expense of to-go’s which we did not want to pass on to the consumer. We already do a semi-annual shutdown in July & December for deep cleaning, but since we (sadly) don’t have to compete with all the Milwaukee festivals this summer, we are doing that as well instead of closing down again. We are also making some updates – at least the affordable ones!
We appreciate your patience as we navigate this very troubling time. We invested a lot into significant cooler space this winter so that we would have all the soups you love in larger quantities. That was a big expense for us and losing out on the last couple months of “soup season” revenue has put us in a less than desirable position entering the summer months when business is already down. With small business ownership, we still have mortgages/rent, phone, internet, heating & cooling bills, garbage collection, insurance, accounting and so on in addition to staffing and food costs. This extended time of limited service has been devastating. So we are also taking this time to work on our menu to increase salad and sandwich (and yes, tacos!) offerings. Just because soup is what we know and love, we want to find other ways to get you through the doors with the quality and value you have come to know.

And keep nominating the frontline workers below that you would like to thank. We will announce the winners when we return.
We miss you and look forward to welcoming you back soon! There are brighter days ahead!

Stay well, Scott & Molly McCowan
