An entrepreneur's dream to open a hamburger joint like the one his grandfather took him to as a child is now a thriving business in Wyandotte.
Jeremy Sladovnik's Joe's Hamburgers opened five years ago in a tight spot on Elm Street, just off downtown Wyandotte's main drag. Several weeks ago, Joe's moved to the main street, Biddle Avenue, and took on a larger spot and added a bar.
His old spot was reborn as The Little Pierogi and Crepe Kitchen and is run by one of his former employees.
The new Joe's Hamburger at 3041 Biddle Avenue is double the size of the old place, and has rich wood booths instead of tables and chairs. It also has a bar and is making community events a bigger part of the business plan. It still serves a simple menu of sliders, poutine, pierogi, grilled cheeses, soups and milkshakes, malts and sundaes.
This week a Saturday brunch is planned as is a craft beer party with Shorts Brewing out of Bellaire, Michigan.
