Experienced restaurateur plans full-service café serving breakfast and lunch
Plymouth, WI – April 17, 2018 – 210 East Mill Street will soon be the place for hungry patrons to find a great breakfast or lunch. Carole O’Malley, former owner of DeO’Malley’s Pizza Pub, plans to open Carole’s Café in mid-May.
The restaurant will feature a menu containing a mix of moderately priced “comfort” breakfast and lunch foods, based on time-honored recipes. Carole’s Café will offer both breakfast and lunch from 6AM-2PM weekdays except Tuesday, as well as Sunday from 7AM to 1PM.
“My aim is simple,” noted O’Malley. “Carole’s Café will provide a completely sophisticated yet casual dining experience—a destination of choice for both the residents of Plymouth as well as visitors from the surrounding area.” O’Malley plans to provide affordable high-quality food. “We plan to feature healthy foods of the type that will satisfy both the hearty eaters and those that prefer a lighter fare.”
Carole O’Malley offers a strong history of successful restaurant ownership. She worked in the industry for 14 years in a bed and breakfast inn. In 2001, she opened and operated DeO’Malley’s Pizza Pub, establishing a reputation for quality food at an affordable price. She sold the business last April, and since that time has identified a retail gap that is underserved in Plymouth.
Senior financing for the company was provided by the Sheboygan County Revolving Loan Fund. The Small Business Development Center at UW-Green Bay (SBDC) as well as Sheboygan County Economic Development Corporation (SCEDC) worked with O’Malley through the business plan development process and to successfully complete the application process. “It has been a pleasure working with Carole,” noted SCEDC’s Business Development Manager Jim Schuessler. “Plymouth, The Cheese Capital of the World also offers a beautiful downtown retail district, and Carole’s Café will make it even more a destination for folks from near and far.”
