Corner Bakery Cafe, a chain of fast-casual restaurants with more than 160 locations in the U.S., will open its first Wisconsin location in the Mayfair Collection development in Wauwatosa.
Neo Fourno Inc., a franchise partner of CBC Restaurant Corp. owned by local restaurateurs Dimitri Dimitropoulos and Peter Dimitropoulos, will operate the 4,000-square-foot location near the entrance to the project at Burleigh Street and 114th Street.
“We couldn’t be more thrilled that Corner Bakery Cafe has chosen The Mayfair Collection as the place to introduce its brand to the state of Wisconsin,” said Tim Blum, executive vice president of retail development for Chicago-based HSA Commercial Real Estate, the developer for the Mayfair Collection project. “Though it took a little patience, we believe that we have found the best possible café and coffee shop for our customers and future residents to enjoy.”
The first phase of the Mayfair Collection, located northeast of Burleigh and U.S. Highway 45, opened in April with a store lineup that includes Nordstrom Rack, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Saks Fifth Avenue OFF 5TH and Ulta Beauty
HSA Commercial will break ground next month on the second phase of the project, which will include a Whole Foods Market grocery store and a 140-room Homewood Suites by Hilton hotel.
Construction for the Corner Bakery Cafe at Mayfair Collection will begin within the next few weeks. It is expected to open later this year.
Neo Fourno Inc. plans to open ten new Corner Bakery Cafes in Madison and Milwaukee over the next five years.
