Despite not getting a $2.75 million village loan, Olive Garden is still coming to Menomonee Falls

Construction has started on Menomonee Falls` first Olive Garden, at White Stone Station, along Interstate 41, northwest of Froedtert and the Wisconsin Athletic Club.

Despite being denied for a $2.75 million forgivable village loan to finance a brewpub and an Olive Garden in spring, the Olive Garden is a go, said Scott Yauck, owner of Cobalt Partners.

This restaurant will be at N91 W15848 Falls Parkway.  

Olive Garden communication manager Meagan Bernstein said the restaurant is expected to open this fall or winter and should employ about 150 people.

While the Italian restaurant will open, Yauck said, the lack of the village loan will prevent him from developing the additional concepts, such as the Bavarian bierhaus, at least for the immediate future.

Ken Notes: Not sure of the details but 2.75 forgivable seems like a huge ask we need to see what guidelines we have in place.
