Buy Local Initiative presents: “Best Of Kewaunee County”

Residents in Kewaunee County have been heard in the first “best of” competition. The Kewaunee County Buy Local Initiative wanted to highlight local businesses for doing an outstanding job in a variety of different categories, so a voting system was established. The response was amazing and the results show why local folks have become so committed to buying from area businesses.

“Kewaunee County doesn’t have the sheer number of businesses that other Counties do, so we structured it a little differently than the more familiar Best of the Bay promotion in Green Bay. We developed categories that can recognize retail, service, or even manufacturing businesses” says Jennifer Brown, director of the Kewaunee County Economic Development Corporation.

“We included the category Best Place to Take a Tourist to recognize that so many of our businesses rely tourism dollars, especially in the summer months” says Claire Thompson from UW Cooperative Extension.

Without further ado, here are the results!:


Best Customer Service – Sanctuary Salon, Kewaunee


Best Atmosphere – The Flying Pig Gallery and Greenspace, Algoma

Most Attractive Storefont – The Flying Pig Gallery and Greenspace, Algoma

Most Family Friendly – Village Kitchen, Casco

Best Breakfast – Village Kitchen, Casco


Most Active in the Community – Bank of Luxemburg, Luxemburg


Most Pet Friendly Environment – Pico Bello Pet Grooming, Kewaunee


Best Lunch – Caffe Tlazo, Algoma


Best Dinner – The Cork Restaurant & Pub, Kewaunee


Best Place to Take a Tourist – von Stiehl Winery, Algoma
