Today, Joe and Angie Sorge, along with David Marcus (President of Marcus Investments) announced a new partnership with the Marcus family to create a new hospitality company that merges five great restaurant brands; Water Buffalo, AJ Bombers, Swig, Zaffiro’s and Smoke Shack (currently under development in Third Ward).
The goal of Marcus Investments is to help family-owned businesses and brands flourish in their own way. Marcus Investments acquired Milwaukee’s Zaffiro’s Pizza in 2008.
Joe Sorge wrote, “Somewhere in the middle of 2010, we had the good fortune of meeting David Marcus. David is the President of Marcus Investments here in Milwaukee. His company’s goal is to help family-owned businesses and brands flourish in their own way. You may already know that David’s company recently acquired Zaffiros Pizza in Milwaukee. Marcus Investments is an exciting group themselves and share many of the same family values in business that Angie and I do. We’ve spent many months getting to know each other as a group and as potential business partners.”
Joe continues, “So it is with great enthusiasm that we are finally able to announce our new partnership with the Marcus family to create a new hospitality company that merges five great restaurant brands.”
Joe and Angie will continue to operate its three restaurant concepts; Water Buffalo, AJ Bombers and Swig, as well as any future Zaffiro’s locations.
