Wakker Cheese opens In Kewaunee
Johannes Wakker is using his grandmother’s gouda cheese recipe from Holland to make cheese behind his family’s new store in downtown Kewaunee.
A picture of his grandmother using dogs to pull a milk cart in Holland is featured in the kitchen behind the store, which opened this week on Milwaukee Avenue.
The store features blue-and-white tiles and dishes from Denmark accented with dark woods.
The gouda cheese has been aged for up to nine months and is available by weight. Wakker also hopes to add spiced gouda, cheddar curds, and pepperjack to the store’s offerings.
“We are just getting started,” said Wakker, who is taking an online course to obtain a liquor license for the store so that they can begin selling wines in June.
Right now the store is open 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturdays.
Wakker says that he and his family hope to have an official grand opening in June.
