Why franchise in Milwaukee?
Coastal energy with Midwestern charm
Positioned on the waters of Lake Michigan, Milwaukee has a lot to offer. With dozens of breweries and over 170 restaurants in the downtown area alone, Milwaukee’s exciting dining scene is one of its biggest draws. Add in stunning lake views, ample room for outdoor recreation like freshwater surfing and boating, and an eclectic mix of local businesses that keeps residents coming back, and it’s easy to see why Milwaukee is such a great place to live.
Milwaukee’s relatively low cost of living and affordable real estate prices also make it an ideal location for employers looking to expand operations. Employers like Harley-Davidson and Briggs & Stratton already call Milwaukee home, and more and more companies are starting to do the same, taking advantage of Milwaukee’s business-friendly climate.
