Christos Taverna & Gift Shop owner, Robbi Wolff, was awarded first place in the 2017 Coulee Region Entrepreneurial Initiative Business Plan Competition brought to you by LADCO and CenturyLink. Wolff accepted this honor at the 21st Annual Industry Appreciation Breakfast held at the Radisson Center on July 12, 2017.
Wolff envisions adding a taverna to her retail shop The Foreign Place. Currently, That Foreign Place offers imported Greek wine, olive oil, olives, honey, chocolate, packaged food, imported spirits and beers, wine accessories, jewelry, home décor, soap, scarves, cards and other small gifts. Also, they hold free monthly wine tastings on a Saturday afternoon. The tasting includes wine, beer and food samples with a selection of European music being played for entertainment played by a DJ from Greece. That Foreign Place was located at 123 4th Street South La Crosse, WI 54601.
However, the added taverna required a larger space, so the new location will be at 109 3rd Street South La Crosse, WI 54601 under the new name Christos Taverna and Gift Shop.
The added taverna will give customers a retail and food experience that is different than any other location in downtown La Crosse. Customers will be able to enjoy a beverage while shopping on one side and relaxing with authentic Greek cuisine in a unique atmosphere on the other. Wolff will continue to provide the unique products customers have grown to expect and add another level to the retail experience with the addition of the taverna.
So, visit Christos Taverna & Gift Shop located at 109 3rd Street South La Crosse, WI 54601 for a lovely afternoon or evening full of authentic Greek food, wine, and beer!
