After being in business for five years–Corktown Deli and Brews recently got a new address. “We had an opportunity to purchase this building, and we were kind of thinking, should we do it? Should we not do it? We ended up just kind of taking a leap of faith. We purchased the building, and then we decided, well, now what are we going to do with it? Our lease was up in our past location of Corktown. So the timing just kind of lined up for we were kind of like, Let’s move Corktown,” said Co-Owner Jeff Petcoff.

The business can be found at 102 S 27th Ave W Suite 100, in Duluth. You can’t miss it with the orange panels aside from the building, a few fruit trees, some parking spaces, new menu items, and much more. It also tripled in size and provides amenities that the old spot didn’t have as Petcoff explained.

“Drawbacks of the other location was the coolers were all in the basement. We had to haul kegs up and down the stairs. We had meats coming up and down the stairs, and while we all had great-looking calves wasn’t ideal for the food service.”

Corktown Deli and Brews was closed for a few weeks, but according to Petroff that didn’t stop their customers from keeping track of the whole process.

“Our customers are great. They were following along the whole way, and a lot of our regulars have come and followed us to our new spot. Luckily, we’re only a few blocks away, so it’s not that far, or that big of a change for a lot of people. A lot of people prefer the new spot just for all the room and just kind of again so we’re not packing people in like crazy. It’s more comfortable here for sure.”

Once those customers, new and returning walk in the door, they can certainly feel the new vibe of the business.

“It’s really good. It’s very pretty and the workers are very nice. The food is pretty good, too. We really thought that the interior was pretty cool. I think this is a good thing for Duluth to have something like this,” said Mariah Miller and Nicole Manion.

The restaurant is open seven days a week from 11 to 9.
