Outpost to open retail kiosk at Aurora Sinai


Milwaukee-based Outpost Natural Foods, one of the largest natural foods cooperatives in the United States, announces that it will open a new 225 square foot retail space in the lobby at Aurora Sinai Medical Center at 945 N. 12th St., Milwaukee.
Outpost Market Cafe will offer a variety of signature made-from-scratch Outpost prepared food items including bakery, sandwiches, soups, salads and entrees. The kiosk will also offer hot coffee and tea, juices, a limited selection of local, fresh and non-perishable staple grocery items like milk and dairy, eggs, produce, bread, bulk items, convenient center aisle foods and bagged coffee.
Outpost currently has two smaller take-away food kiosks located in the Aurora Sinai cafeteria that will remain. Both locations serve a purpose for hospital staff, patients and visitors as well as people in the surrounding community, including Marquette University, the Pabst Brewery development and the Milwaukee County Courthouse. 
"Outpost's vision is to connect our entire community to our fresh, tasty and wholesome foods whether they walk through our stores or not. Aurora Sinai is one of the first locations where Outpost began selling wholesale products back in 2007 with that purpose in mind," said Outpost general manager, Pam Mehnert.
