Today’s Speaker Spotlight shines on Wendy Mireles of Café Corazón Mequon! George and Wendy Mireles opened the first Café Corazón a decade ago in Riverwest with the goal of bringing fresh, Latin cuisine to Milwaukee. Today, their priority is providing locally-sourced food to customers by utilizing urban gardens and local farms at all three restaurant locations.

We asked Wendy to reflect on her business ownership journey and she told us, “I am proud that Corazón is celebrating 10 years, with 3 locations, 120 employees… We have never wavered from our intention to develop leaders within our staff, provide excellent customer service, support local farmers, and reduce our industry footprint when we expanded from Riverwest to Bay View and now in Mequon.”

Hear more from Wendy at She Stands Tall: Women of Mequon Public Market on October 14!
