Owning and operating a small business can be very difficult, stressful, and thankless work. The hours can be long, a paycheck isn’t always guaranteed, and the worries tend to pile up. With our new “Business To Business” series, we’re offering business owners in and around Milwaukee a platform to acknowledge other local establishments and area entrepreneurs they appreciate. This week: Lakefront Brewery co-founder, president, and owner Russ Klisch extends some words of love to ABC Lock & Key Inc. Here’s what Russ has to say…

I’d like to give a shout out to ABC Lock & Key Inc., located at 2841 N. Martin Luther King Dr. I’ve been going there to have my keys made, buy locks and padlocks, and get general advice on locks for as long as the brewery has been open. They’re the best in town.

They are big on knowledge about everything locks, but small on conversation. They have been a reliable and valuable asset to Milwaukee’s Harambee community and those in the know. I consider the place an institution, as it is one of a kind. When you walk in, you’ll feel you just entered a time warp and you’ve been transferred back to the 1960s. There are no credit cards accepted here and don’t expect to pick up a WiFi signal, but you will get great service.
