The Mars Cheese Castle in Kenosha County is doubling the size of its interstate cheese palace.

Mars Cheese Castle opened in 1947, but the original store (a converted gas station) had to be torn down to make way for the expansion of Interstate 94. It was replaced by a new 21,000-square-foot store, built just to the west at 2800 West Frontage Road in the Town of Paris, that was completed in 2011. Built by Oconomowoc-based MSI General Corp., the new Mars Cheese Castle had a larger store, added a restaurant, wine area, beer garden and has the appearance of a castle.

Mars Cheese Castle has also hired MSI for the expansion project. On Monday, MSI will break ground on a 21,042-square-foot addition to the store, which will double its size. Construction is scheduled to be complete in April 2017.

Mars Cheese Castle offers hundreds of cheese varieties, wines, sausages, a deli, a full bar, and a bakery.
