Malone’s headcheese was originally a seasonal product, shared by the Malones with friends and family. That is why during this time of the year we at Malone’s are reminded of just how this company began. It all started with a small neighborhood store on the corner of 6th and Hadley operated by husband-and-wife team George and Glorious Malone, the store offered basic provisions, household items, penny candy and deli meats. It was at this store where Glorious Malone started taking orders for her headcheese. We are reminded how that small store developed its specialty product into a thriving small business. So during this time of thanksgiving we are grateful for what once was, what now is and what will be.
Autumn is really upon us as of late and even though the weather is getting colder and colder, Malone’s has been making frequent appearances to showcase our headcheese and pates. Last week we were at the Wisconsin Grocers Association Innovation Expo at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells and appeared at Madison’s Isthmus Food and Wine Festival. We like nothing more than bringing our product to those who have never tried headcheese or who have never even heard of it.
Malone’s also proudly received first runner up in the Governor’s Conference for small sized Outstanding Woman-Owned Business Award. Everyone here is very grateful for the award.
Lastly, we were featured on Fox 6 News’ Real Milwaukee segment. During the show Kyle Cherek of the PBS series “Wisconsin Foodie” introduced some new foods to the Fox News’ cast. Our headcheese was sampled and received positive reactions.

Malone’s on Real Milwaukee
The Malone’s team has been working hard these past few weeks attending the Scale Up Milwaukee Scalerator sessions. These sessions have been delving deep into the world of sales and marketing, assisting Malone’s and other local businesses in harnessing their full potential.
Malone’s has also been a part of other events including the ACF Chefs of Milwaukee Full Belly Fundraiser, Brewfest and the African American Chamber of Commerce, Women in Business Series Luncheon “Journey of Powerful women”.
Lastly, on October 15 and 16 the Malone’s team will have a booth at this year’s Wisconsin Grocers Association Innovation Expo at the Kalahari Resort in Wisconsin Dells. Needless to say everyone at Malone’s has been busy working in and outside the building.
Malone’s has been busy these last few weeks. Last week the good people from Wisconsin Foodie came by and interviewed our President and CEO, Daphne Jones. Daphne gave the Foodie crew the full tour of the building and sat down with the host of the hit PBS show to discuss the history of the company, its fantastic products and the future of Malone’s. The episode featuring Malone’s is expected to air in early 2014.
Malone’s has also been selected to participate in Scale Up Milwaukee’s Scalerator program. The Scale Up program is a series of workshops designed to give already successful local businesses the tools to increase sales and improve on the businesses themselves. The face behind Scalerator is Dan Isenberg, a Venture Capitalist who is also a entrepreneurship professor at Babson College. Malone’s expects nothing but great things to come from the Scale Up Milwaukee program and is sure that the workshops will provide useful information and techniques to help the company.

It is always interesting to begin a conversation about our signature product Gourmet Headcheese. Either the look on the face is quizzical, shows hints of utter disbelief or oh yeah, I know about Malone’s. I love to introduce our headcheese to new faces. It’s a wonderful opportunity to continue the tradition of Malone’s Gourmet Headcheese. When I see the struggle behind the eyes with the name headcheese, I begin by saying that our headcheese is not what you have been accustomed to seeing. It has a smooth texture, and an appetizing appearance which triggers the anticipation of the tantalization of the taste buds. You only have to see our Gourmet Headcheese to believe it and once you taste our delicious pork product….you will know if its for you or not. Our headcheese is a winner. A definite rock star! It is so awesome to hear the joy so many of our customers share about their experiences with Malone’s for 30 years. Thank you all for your loyalty to Malone’s and your taste buds. Headcheese you say? With the biggest smile, I say Absolutely! I do indeed! How about you? Let me know! Click here to see more about our infamous headcheese
