Worzalla sold, BroKogi opened, updates on coffee and retail store openings and more

Happy Tuesday and welcome to the Streetwise newsletter!

A couple of weeks ago, I covered the news that Worzalla, an employee-owned printing company based in Stevens point, sold to a Minnesota-based company and will be renamed Sheridan Worzalla . CJK Group Inc. announced its printing, publishing and technology and information business acquired Worzalla. Stevens Point is now Sheridan's third location in Wisconsin, following Madison and Random Lake. A representative from Sheridan told me the company intends to keep its current operation open and profitable, and those operations are expected to stay the same, although there may be some shifts between Sheridan's facilities to work most efficiently.

If you've been missing your favorite Korean dishes since Dosirak Korean Restaurant closed last month, a new Korean restaurant just opened in the same location in Stevens Point. BroKogi opened Friday at the former Dosirak Korean Restaurant , 108 Division St. Sangwoon Kim and Sangin Kim started a food truck in Wausau in June and were looking for a more permanent location to open a restaurant when Dosirak Korean Restaurant reached out to the brothers to see if they might be interested in taking over the restaurant. I recently talked with the brothers about their plans to combine their food truck dishes with a similar menu to what Dosirak Korean Restaurant offered.

As we move into fall, we're seeing more progress on various development projects throughout the Wisconsin Rapids and Stevens Point areas, including some opening dates for businesses.

Scooter's Coffee is set to open Oct. 2 at 5707 U.S. 10 E. in Stevens Point. Construction on the 670-square-foot drive-thru coffee shop began in the spring near U.S. Bank.

Nearby, Ross Dress for Less is set to open a few days later, holding a grand opening Oct. 7 at 5601 U.S. 10 E. in Stevens Point. That store is opening in the building where Dunham's Sports operates, and Big Lots and Five Below are set to open at that site, as well. Neither company had timelines for openings to share.

Speaking of fall, the season of fall activities is here. Farms and other businesses are opening up for corn maze wanderers, apple pickers and pumpkin collectors. I put together a guide to help you plan some fall fun this season throughout central Wisconsin .

In my last newsletter, I shared that I had recently highlighted Stevens Point's connection to Maui , especially through the aftermath of the wildfires that swept through Lahaina Aug. 8. In January, the mayors of Stevens Point and Kapaula, Hawaii, officially declared January as Maui-Stevens Point Connected Communities month. Last month, Sentry announced it would contribute an initial donation of $275,000 to help with immediate relief and recovery in Maui, and its foundation is matching donations by Sentry associates and retirees to go to the Maui United Way's Fire Disaster Relief Fund.

After we published that story, a woman who was born and raised in Stevens Point reached out to me and shared her story of moving to Lahaina, what the community is like, and her experiences through that wildfire last month. She sees many similarities between the two communities and is grateful for the support of her hometown as she navigates through the aftermath.
