Northpoint Custard Not Returning in 2018?

March 16, 2018

Last summer chances started looking bleak when Milwaukee County got a bad response to a request for proposal to run the Northpoint Custard stand for the next five years. 

But this week, Bartolotta's, who opened Northpoint in 2009, announced that it "will continue its partnership with Milwaukee County in 2018" and that the stand will open on Saturday, May 19. As always, Northpoint will open with a bang, offering free burgers to the first 200 customers in line.

"Northpoint has come to symbolize the unofficial start of the summer on the lakefront and are thrilled to continue this partnership for our community to enjoy," said Bartolotta's Scott Williams in a statement.

Just after the stand closed last year it was featured on the Cooking Channel's debut episode of "Seaside Snacks & Shacks."
