MILWAUKEE, WI – (October 31, 2019)

The property at 2699 S Kinnickinnic Ave in Bay View, formerly Sven’s Cafe, has been purchased by 2699 S Kinnickinnic LLC. The llc’s members include Cat Tran and Mark Nielsen, owners of Hue Restaurant Group.

“When this property became available, we knew this was an opportunity to further our commitment to Bay View, a neighborhood we have been connected to for over a decade.” said Nielsen.

Sven’s Cafe ceased operations over the summer and the property was placed on the market. 2699 S Kinnickinnic LLC finalized sale of the property this last week.

“We have not decided exactly what we intend to do with the property at this time” says Tran. “with the growth of SquareMeal, our frozen meal prep service, our Hue Asian Kitchen food truck, and our growing catering operations, everything is on the table”.

Tran and Nielsen started SquareMeal in 2018. The venture specializes in frozen, ready to cook meals. Meals include many American classics and are not typically Asian focused.

More information will be released as plans are finalized.
