Milwaukee’s most famous “Wurstmacher”, Usinger immigrated from Germany in 1881 with his Old World sausage recipes. Within a year, he purchased the interests of his original employers, married their niece and began to manufacture the now famous Usinger brand. Family owned, the business is still headquartered at the original location on Old World Third Street.
