Brunch Named Best And Brightest In Milwaukee!

So, we’re feeling like kind-of a big deal this week, because Brunch was named one of Milwaukee’s Best And Brightest Companies To Work For®! We learned about the honor a few months ago, and it got real at the awards ceremony!

Burnch receives 2019 Best And Brightest Award

Tay Brittain (Manager of Brunch Milwaukee), Morgan Sampson (Owner of Brunch), and Eric Hunsader (Manager of Brunch Brookfield) happily accept the award

The Best And Brightest companies are evaluated based on a few categories, including communication, work-life balance, employee education, diversity, recognition, retention, and more. We were one of only 48 companies in the greater Milwaukee area to be awarded in 2019, and we’re so proud!

It’s really all about team here – if you’ve spent any time at our Milwaukee or Brookfield locations, you totally get the vibe. We strive to provide a fantastic work environment, and this award makes us believe we’ve been doing the right things to achieve it. Kudos to our rockstar management team for making this happen – we couldn’t do it without you!

Brunch Milwaukee Celebrates Women’s Entrepreneurship Week

Brunch Milwaukee was super-excited to be invited to host an event for Women’s Entrepreneurship Week this year! On Monday, March 4, Morgan Sampson, our fearless leader and owner of Brunch was featured on a panel with Kelly Andrew of Filament Communication, and Ebony Ssali, owner of Ssali Media Group. The topic for the event was “Who’s Leading YOU?” and it was a lively conversation.

Brunch Milwaukee Celebrates Women’s Entrepreneurship Week

We couldn’t be more proud of Morgan, who founded Brunch Milwaukee in 2016, and opened Brunch Brookfield shortly after! She’s our rock, and, in our opinion, one heck of an example of a woman entrepreneur. Morgan shared a little bit about our team (we read a leadership book each month!), and about how she’s overcome challenges to be a great leader.

Our Brunch Milwaukee team had a blast supporting Women’s Entrepreneurship Week! We give props to Presenting Sponsor Accelity Marketing, whose team was running around town to over 60 events throughout the week! And to all of the women (and men!) who showed up to support the events, learn from each other, and build a thriving business environment in Milwaukee – bravo!
