Plans for new Festival Foods and Caribou Coffee to be reviewed by Hartford Plan Commission

June 11, 2021 – Hartford, WI – The Hartford Plan Commission will review the designs for the new Skogen’s Festival Foods on Sumner Street. Construction is expected to start later this year.

Festival Foods

The location, 1201 Bell Avenue, and 1275 Bell Avenue, had been vacant more than four years following the departure of Sentry Foods to the west and Kmart to the east.

According to the preliminary designs the grocery is a proposed 70,213-square-foot building. Festival Foods is expected to employ about 200 people.

There is also a separate strip mall type building that would be to the east of the store. That proposed retail would be 11,327-square feet.  Interesting to note that location has drive-thru ability planned on both the north and south end of the building.

According to Hartford City Administrator Steve Volkert the proposed retail strip will be home to the tenants currently located in the section between the future Festival Foods and what is currently a vacant parcel, formerly home to Sentry. “Once those tenants have moved, that connecting segment will be eliminated,” said Volkert.

Questioned whether an offer has been made on the former Sentry parcel, Volkert said that was still up for sale.

To the right, or west of the Festival Foods is a Caribou Coffee outlet.

Plan Commission is Monday, June 14, 2021 in the Council Chambers at Hartford City Hall. The meeting begins at 5:30 p.m. and is open to the public.
