In 2013, the Nitty Gritty opened a location in the historic cannery district of downtown Sun Prairie. The restaurant is housed in a building that was developed as the Sun Prairie Canning Company in 1900. Over the next 100 years, the cannery changed hands several times and was owned by companies such as the Fuhremann Canning Co., the Oconomowoc Canning Co., Stokely USA and Chiquita Brands International. Industrial operations ceased there in 2000, and the building was added to the National Registrar of Historic Places in 2004. It was redeveloped as a commercial and residential facility in 2007 where it later became the home of the Sun Prairie Nitty Gritty. The new location is owned by 7 key employees (Eric, Lee, Jason, Brandi Hintze, Meggie Johnson, Michael Leto and James Fanone), together providing over 87 years of management experience into the business. We are proud to be a part of the Sun Prairie community.
