Goddess and the Baker Announces First Wisconsin Location at The Corners of Brookfield
Chicago-favorite expands to Wisconsin with restaurant set to open summer 2018
Town of Brookfield, Wis. – The Corners of Brookfield today announced that popular Chicago eatery Goddess and the Baker will open its first Wisconsin restaurant at The Corners of Brookfield this summer. The 2,771-sq. ft. restaurant will be located south of Café Hollander at The Corners and will serve breakfast, lunch, dinner and all-day dessert.
“We are ecstatic to welcome Goddess and the Baker to The Corners,” said Robert Gould, CEO of Brookfield Corners, LLC. “Our patrons have been patiently awaiting a coffee shop, and we are thrilled to deliver something they can’t find anywhere else in Wisconsin. Not only will Goddess and the Baker offer incredible coffee and beverages, but also fresh, seasonal food and delicious baked goods.”
Goddess and the Baker is a modern-day gourmet storefront offering fast, fresh food and an extensive variety of coffee and beverages. The seasonal menu features a wide selection of vibrant salads, soups and made-to-order sandwiches, as well as delicious sweets and pastries, including Goddess’ famous rainbow cake (one of Chicago’s most Instagrammable desserts). The restaurant’s one-of-a-kind beverages include a rotating selection of coffee from favorite third-wave roasters around the country and world, cold brew coffee on Nitro tap, tea and espresso drinks. The restaurant also offers a juice bar and serves tap beer, wine and specialty cocktails.
“It is very exciting to be opening our first restaurant in Wisconsin, and I can’t think of a better location than The Corners of Brookfield,” said Tamar Mizrahi Goddess and the Baker partner. “There were a number of factors that drew us to this location, and we feel that the existing tenant mix and customer base is the perfect fit for our brand. We can’t wait to join the Town of Brookfield and Greater Milwaukee community.”
Goddess Group restaurants owner Debbie Sharpe got her start in concert catering, traveling the globe and cooking for some of the most influential musicians of the time. She settled in Chicago after touring with Paul McCartney, and opened part-grocery store, part-restaurant The Goddess and Grocer in 2004. The Goddess’ creative sandwiches, salads and gourmet pantry items were an immediate hit, and it wasn’t long before the spin-off concept Goddess and the Baker was born. Today, the Goddess empire includes seven locations and a catering division.
The restaurant is The Corners’ tenth first-to-Wisconsin tenant, and the announcement comes as the town center approaches its one-year anniversary on April 8.
“We’ve been pleased to build on the momentum from our April opening by continuously announcing new tenants and opening new stores and restaurants,” said Gould. “The addition of Goddess and the Baker is another important step in creating a wonderful community town center for our guests.”
