FEBRUARY CHAMBER MEMBER SPOTLIGHT
Our February Business Spotlight is Off The Rail Café. Kelley and Daniel Sadiq opened Off The Rail Café in early February 2011. Daniel and Kelley met in the United Kingdom working for Gallup Organization (a marketing research company) in the mid-Nineties and married in 2000 before moving to the United States in 2001. In 2006, they moved to Elkhart Lake from New Mexico (to join Daniel’s two brothers) and Daniel worked in Milwaukee while Kelley raised three young children in Elkhart Lake.
With three children in the Elkhart Lake-Glenbeulah school system and plenty of support from Daniel and Kelley’s extended family and help from friends in the local community, opening Off The Rail went from a dream to reality. Offering specialty coffee and teas and hand-crafted sandwiches as well as from-scratch soups and baked goods, Off The Rail is delighted to be part of the amazing culinary scene in Elkhart Lake. Off The Rail is staffed by friendly, loyal employees and Daniel and Kelley enjoy working side by side a fantastic crew (which now includes all three of their kids and Kelley’s father!).
Daniel and Kelley are incredibly grateful for all the help and support of not just the community, restaurants and local small businesses who have advised them and patronized them, but also to The Elkhart Lake Chamber Of Commerce for their commitment to promoting Off The Rail and working alongside the café on events in and around Elkhart Lake.
Daniel was instrumental in revitalizing the ELCOC Schnee Days in 2013 as a volunteer, working with the Elkhart Lake Chamber of Commerce and is extremely proud to see Schnee Days become one of the Chamber’s premier events.
The Elkhart Lake Chamber of Commerce membership includes a large number of diverse businesses in the Elkhart Lake area and beyond and provides a much needed central hub of information and support to each other and the village of Elkhart Lake.
