About the business: While Robin Shiels first opened a storefront in Downtown Kenosha on August 9, 2011, her business got its start more than two years earlier. Mix together a love of baking and one disastrous bridal shower cake, add a cake decorating class along with a few years of experience and a booth at Kenosha HarborMarket, and voila, you have Robin where she is today. Robin shares: “Our philosophy is simple: I bake like my grandmother did. I use the best local ingredients I can find and I make everything fresh. We do not freeze anything and we make everything in small batches. … I've always loved to bake!” How did the name of the business come to be? “It was between Robin's Nest and Robin's Egg.  I like the hominess of Nest.”​Fresh gourmet popcorn and caramel, cheese and flavor-glazed popcorn treats. Premium Cedar Crest ice cream. Made-to-order sundaes, malts and shakes. Gift baskets. Nostalgic and gourmet sweets. Cheery, family-oriented shop. Sidewalk seating. "Pop'n Downtown Kenosha."

More about this Downtown Kenosha shop: Kenosha HarborMarket visitors met David and Sandy Hawes a few years before the shop – their first business – opened in May 2008. The couple started as a vendor at the market in 2006, as Sandy’s Popper Express. The shop expanded into adjacent space in 2015.
