Milwaukee cheese shop heads to Madison

Wisconsin Cheese Mart is on track to open July 1 in the former Red Elephant Chocolate shop near the top of State Street, according to a Wisconsin State Journal article.

Ken McNulty and his wife purchased the downtown Milwaukee store on Old World Third Street in 2003, but the business has actually served city dwellers since 1938.

McNulty says the Madison location will not only serve specialty cheeses, it will offer bratwurst, curds, soft pretzels, and many different varieties of grilled-cheese sandwiches.
