BELLEVUE, Wis. (NBC 26) -- Becky Sitkowski sought to bring something to Bellevue that she didn't see in the area over her lifetime of experience in the restaurant industry: fresh, green, and healthy breakfast and lunch options.
"I've worked in the restaurant industry forever and have a passion for organic and healthy food," Sitkowski explains. So five years ago, her and husband Shawn opened Greenwich Bistro.
"I actually had a lot of health issues where I was starting to focus on that stuff and kind of control health issues though dietary means," Sitkowski said. "You come to learn how good food tastes when you actually make it from scratch instead of buying it from the freezer."
To make this come together, they've grown strong partnerships with local farmers and retailers to succeed together as small businesses.
"We love working with local people; we support as many small businesses as we can," Sitkowski said. Waseda Farms supplies all of their meat, and they sell Luna Coffee Roasters from De Pere.
Greenwich Bistro is truly a small business, with less than seven people on the payroll. Becky and her co-owner Shawn, who is also her husband, are in the process of applying for a government loan through the Paycheck Protection Program that will help cover their payroll for the near future to remain financially stable.
For the remainder of Gov. Evers' Safer at Home order, Greenwich Bistro is doing curb side pickup as well as EatStreet delivery.
