A downtown Oconomowoc business and its traditional menu of food and beer, will now offer a different aspect to its restaurant.

Crafty Cow announced the creation of two “ghost” kitchens known as Down South Sammies and Big Wings. According to Crafty Cow co-owner Devin Eichler, a ghost kitchen is a delivery-only food concept that’s sold exclusively online and through delivery apps.

“Customers will be able to enjoy these exclusive menu options through carryout and delivery, but they will not be available for dine-in,” Eichler said.

Eichler said the ghost kitchens are “just another way for us to expand our reach, especially right now during COVID.”

Eichler’s favorite new menu item is from the Down South Sammies menu: the Hot Chick, a Nashville hot fried chicken thigh, lettuce, tomato, pickles and mayo.

“It’s pretty simple, but it’s really good,” Eichler said.

Down South Sammies also features brisket, pulled bacon, macaroni and cheese and more. The Big Wing menu offers boneless and whole bone-in wings with a variety of sauces.

A lot of the sandwiches were inspired from specials Crafty Cow has done in the past or the items were on previous menus.

“We felt if we put them all together, this is a restaurant we could really launch just online as a standalone thing,” Eichler said.

The ghost kitches launched Oct. 6. To order, visit craftycowwi.com, Postmates, Grubhub or Doordash.

“There’s not too many independent restaurants in Wisconsin that I know of doing any,” Eichler said. “They are a restaurant within our restaurant, essentially.”

People will also be able to order on middlewestrestaurants.com,expected to launch soon.

Crafty Cow is at 153 E. Wisconsin Ave., Oconomowoc. There is also a Milwaukee location at 2675 S. Kinnickinnic Ave.
