OCONOMOWOC — After initially not
having plans to move, Mantra will be leaving its location at 24 S.
Main St. to the old Mazatlan building at 511 E. Wisconsin Ave., due
in part to Cornerstone owner John Suttner.
“He is helping me for everything,” owner Govindarajan Navaneetham
Navaneetham said he started moving Mantra out of Old City Mall on
Monday and hopes to open at his new location this evening.
“We are hoping (to open tonight), but if not sometime during the
weekend,” Navaneetham said.
Navaneetham will be meeting with the architectural commission on
Wednesday to discuss painting over the orange the building is
He also said he is just planning on painting the building and not
conducting a full facade renovation.
Mantra is having to move because Cornerstone is starting to begin
the expansion of its restaurant to come to the Main Street corridor.
Suttner said he is happy to help Navaneetham find a new place.
“I think this is a win for everybody,” Suttner said. “Govind is
going to get more exposure on East Wisconsin Avenue, it helps him
with his long-term business plan and his customers will have more
room to park.”
