FortuNuts is owned by the couple Melanie and Darryll Fortune. The business was created in 2011 after encouragement from family and friends who enjoyed the nuts for years as holiday gifts. The name, FortuNuts, is based on the family’s last name — Fortune. We provide personal service, customized to your needs.
Of course, people ask what’s in the nuts and we respond, respectfully — are you nuts?! This recipe is closely guarded, but if you have to know, it does include high-quality, premium nuts as the core ingredient. We realize there are a lot of nuts out there, but we feel there is a special taste that you just can’t find elsewhere.
Glorious Malone’s Fine Sausage began as a neighborhood store at the corner of Sixth and Hadley Streets on Milwaukee’s north side. The store offers basic provisions, household items, penny candy and deli meats. Malone’s increasing popularity led to accepting orders for the specialty meat from individuals, taverns and other corner stores across Milwaukee, in Racine and Kenosha, and as far south as Chicago. Malone’s is a 12,000-square-foot plant at 300 W. Walnut St. in Milwaukee as a part of revitalization efforts in the King Drive neighborhood. The corner store is long gone, but the legacy of this family tradition continues to thrive. Ten employees now help produce as much as 235,000 pounds of headcheese a year.
Lush popcorn is a family owned and operated company that started as a labor of love. Self proclaimed foodies Marcia and Marc began creating flavor-infused popcorn for family and friends who in turn convinced them that their popcorn was meant to be shared with the world. Lush officially began in 2014 with our signature White Chocolate flavor. Our flavor pallet has since expanded to include Liquor infused creations, inspired by our very own Brew City history. Lush popcorn aims to end the popcorn prohibition, and revolutionize the snacking industry, one flavor at a time!
