MEQUON — Fresh hot donuts from Happy Dough Lucky will join other announced partners in Mequon Public Market at Spur 16.

The Mequon Public Market will be located in one of the historic former public works buildings along Mequon Road in the second phase of the Mequon Town Center that now is taking shape.

“This is a great opportunity to serve our customers in an excellent location with outstanding neighbors,” said owner Andrew Swofford.

Happy Dough Lucky joins already-announced tenants Anodyne Coffee, Beans & Barley, Purple Door Ice Cream, Café Corazon and Bavette La Boucherie.

“Andrew has a great breadth and depth in the industry,” project developer Cindy Shaffer said in a news release.

“In addition to owning Happy Dough Lucky, he is the founder of Eat Locally MKE,” she added. “He has already proven to be an excellent community partner.”

He participated in Gathering on the Green and the recent Taste of Mequon.

Mequon Public Market at Spur 16 is located at 6300 W. Mequon Road and will be next door to St. Paul Fish Co., which will be in the historic “smokestack building.” It will have a sit-down restaurant, fish market and oyster bar.

The Mequon Public Market will have approximately 10 vendors. Additional tenants will be announced in the coming months, according to the news release.

“We have curated an outstanding group of locally owned restaurants that have come together to be a part of the Mequon Public Market at Spur 16,” said Jenny Vetter, director of operations at Spur 16.

Shaffer said construction is well underway at Spur 16.

The target date for opening some of the commercial buildings is late this year or early 2019. Ten townhomes will be completed in January. Three apartment buildings with 50 units each will be completed next spring and summer.

“We have had a great response from people wanting to live at Spur 16,” Shaffer said. “We have already reserved a number of townhomes and apartments. Not only is the location of Spur 16 desirable, but people are finding it is actually cheaper to rent than own.”
