  • Local developers are proposing a multi-use development in De Pere’s downtown

  • The project envisions living, business, retail and plaza space 

Hey, Soup Sister opened four years ago and draws people from around Green Bay to its location at 115 N. Wisconsin St. in downtown De Pere.

“We’ll have people come down and they’ll say, ‘I’m from Suamico and I’ve wanted to try this,’” Hill said. “Most of our regulars live and work in the downtown area. It’s close for them, but we’ve got people who come in from everywhere.”
