About Us

Rupena's Fine Foods is a household name in the Milwaukee, Wisconsin metro area. Rupena's has been in business for more than 90 years and we take pride in our reputation as a purveyor of superior food. John S. Rupena started the business in 1927 as a grocery and produce retailer. Today, Rupena's is well-known for its quality catering services, custom cut meat department, fully-stocked deli, in-house bakery and custom blended All Natural Seasonings.

The grocery store and catering is run by John W. Rupena, son of John S. Rupena, John A. Rupena and Maria Karczewski, son and daughter of John W. Rupena, David Karczewski, son-in-law of John W. Rupena, and Steven Krainz, Godson of John W. Rupena. Confused yet? Rupena's employs as many as 110 people during the peak summer season.

In our retail grocery store, Rupena’s offers the finest quality Black Angus Beef available. The Meat Department at Rupena's boasts eleven full time butchers that will talk with you about your cut of meat as well as provide cooking instructions. Our full service meat counter is one of the best and most recognized in the industry.

The Deli Department at Rupena's offers daily specials from house made tuna salad to refreshing star fruit salad. The selections and quality of deli meats, cheeses and salads will astound you. If you would like something that you don't see, ask, and Rupena's quality kitchen of chefs will make it for you. During the months of August and September, look for Wisconsin State Fair Blue Ribbon Cheeses in the Deli Department.

Fresh hot rolls from Rupena's Bakery Department will whet anyone's appetite. Rupena's rolls are highly sought after. Try to come in around 6:30 in the evening without an order - most likely you'll be out of luck.

Customers rave about the freshness and taste of Rupena's Bakery items. Rupena's Catering Department can serve up anything you would like. The catering department has a menu for you to browse but does not require you to choose from that menu. John A. Rupena, along with brother-in-law David Karczewski and the Doornek Brothers, will prepare any dish you desire for you to pick up for your party of thirty or more, or for your full service catering event.
