Maid-Rite, America’s second oldest franchise, started in 1926 and is famous for its fresh ground beef loose meat sandwiches, pork tenderloins and chicken sandwiches that are all served on a warm steamed bun. In addition, the Waukesha location carries fresh gourmet salads, in-house smoked pork and turkey, wraps, Wisconsin cheese curds, onion tanglers, made to order chips and many other items, including sundaes, malts and shakes.
Since initially opening a few weeks ago, the modern “retro” style diner has greeted many existing fans already familiar with the famous sandwiches as well as started a loyal following of new ones.
The in-house smoked pork has been an instant hit in addition to many of the other signature sandwiches that are served on a white or wheat specialty ciabatta bun. Many neighboring businesses and home owners frequent the restaurant each day for lunch, dinner or to satisfy their sweet tooth.
The FOOD Pantry of Waukesha:
The FOOD Pantry of Waukesha County was begun in 1978 to provide free food to low-income residents of Waukesha County. Each month, the FOOD Pantry provides food to more than 6,000 men, women, and children. Thanks to a generous community, the FOOD Pantry has been able to meet a growing need for services. Karen Tredwell, Executive Director, commented on the generosity of Maid-Rite owners Vance Skinner and Brendan Barrett:
“Many resources are needed annually to ensure that the FOOD Pantry can meet the requests for assistance right here in Waukesha County. We are heartened that Maid-Rite, as a new Waukesha restaurant, recognizes that hunger exists within our county and has generously committed to help fight hunger."
