Company Summary

Milwaukee loves soup, and it is just beginning to embrace food trucks - the fastest growing segment of the US foodservice market. But no one has combined the two. Simmer will leverage Steve Perlstein's 12 years of restaurant management experience and culinary passion and expertise to bring to Milwaukee's streets fresh scratch soups, hearty Meals in a Bowl, salads with housemade dressings, and unique paninis. Great, original food, priced right.
