Back in October, Ferch’s Malt Shoppe – a Greendale institution cherished by the community – closed its doors. Betty and Dale Ferchoff who owned Ferch’s Malt Shoppe decided it was time to close up shop for a new but just as exciting chapter in their life, retirement. The Shoppe, known for its customizable custard left a hole in the hearts of many in the Greendale area and also in a picturesque storefront in the heart of the downtown village.
Despite the end of an era, this paved the way for a new beginning, and come April 2021, the old Ferch’s storefront on Broad Street will get just that when Milk Can Diner moves into town.

You may be familiar with the Milk Can Food Truck, but soon you will be able enjoy their scrumptious burgers and custard in a sit-down setting at their new storefront in Historic Downtown Greendale.
Milk Can’s menu staples will include their Milk Can burgers and custard, which feels fitting considering the shop’s custard-serving predecessor. The diner will also serve breakfast, lunch and dinner alongside a fresh bakery, specialty coffee and a full bar featuring original craft beer.
The Milk Can Diner in Greendale is a partnership between former Dean of the MATC Culinary Arts/Pastry Arts Programs, Rich Busalacchi, who is also an active Greendale community member and Ryan Oschmann owner of Milk Can Hamburgers & Frozen Custard and Bass Bay Brewhouse.
