Mama Mia's Sued for Back Rent

Adding insult to injury, the restaurant, which went out of business in May, is being sued for nonpayment of rent totalling more than $24,000

Mama Mia's owner Jodine Paulsen told Muskego Patch after they closed their doors that the restaurant just couldn't overcome some of its financial difficulties and had to make the tough decision to call it quits.

However, the book may not be closed on the troubles the restaurant had, as the company that owns the building, Wave Management in Cedarburg, is now suing Paulsen and Tabitha Lynn McBride as co-owners of Mama Mia's.  Civil court documents indicate that Wave is seeking $24,828.80 in back rent and other costs.

Paulsen and McBride assumed ownership of the restaurant in June of 2011 from Robert and Kim Bohman, and a lease agreement with Wave was then extended to 2017. The documents were not specific as to which months were delinquent, but monthly rent in the building for the restaurant was approximately $4,500 to $4,600.

The suit was filed on Sept. 12, and as of yet there has been no court action scheduled. Patch has attempted to garner comment from Paulsen, but have not as yet received a response.

This is why so many of these places are vacant. The Management companies simply charge too much for a lease.
