MIDDLETON (WKOW) — After suffering two fires and a flood, Middleton’s Chocolaterian Café has announced it will close.
“Chocolaterian will be closing permanently on Sunday August 18. The fire and the 2 floods were too much for us to overcome. It has been a privilege to serve the Madison and Middleton communities for the last 7 years.
Thank you and we love you, The Chocolaterian Family,” read a post on the company’s website.
The Middleton location remained open after its Madison location closed early in 2018.
First, an espresso machine flooded the Atwood Avenue location in Madison.
Then a few months later, in Feb. 2018, a fire at the Madison location caused roughly $750,000 in damage, and that location never reopened.
Business continued in Middleton, but after a burst pipe at that location, owners decided to close for good.
