Port Washington State Bank (PWSB) is excited to announce a renovation project involving the former Dairy Queen located at 218 E. Washington Street, just west of the bank’s headquarters in downtown Port Washington. With support from The Redmond Company of Waukesha, PWSB plans to create the PWSB Community Room for meetings and events. The new space will feature audio-visual equipment, a 30-person outdoor patio space, a catering kitchen, and ADA-compliant bathrooms and building access, all while maintaining a charming view of the harbor. The room will accommodate approximately 50 people depending upon the setup of the room.

James Schowalter, president and COO, shared his vision for the project. “Our Lakeview Room has been used frequently by non-profit groups and our internal teams for meetings and events, but our new detached room will be more functional and allow for better privacy.”

The new space will be similar in size to the bank’s Lakeview Room located in the Wilson House on the northeast intersection of Franklin and Main Street. The Lakeview Room will soon be converted to a multi-purpose space for the 80 employees that work at the bank’s Franklin street campus.

“As our bank has grown, so too have the number of employees who work here. Now that the pandemic has subsided and we can safely collaborate in person, it’s time to provide our teams with more open space for informal meetings, breaks, and lunches,” James added.

Information on renting the PWSB Community Room will be available on the bank’s website in late summer.
