Akil Ajmeri is building a combination gas station and Subway restaurant complete with a drive-thru, the first in Southeast Wisconsin for the sandwich shop chain.
For Caledonia businessman Akil Ajmeri, life is about family and community, and he's been able to build his business with a focus on strengthening both.

Do all theoretical subway lines lead to Milwaukee? On this map they do. But what do you think?

Looking for that ever popular park that needs a little TLC, Coca-Cola and Subway want you to tell them which parks should get $100,000. This made me wonder, which parks in Caledonia could use a little sprucing up?
Caledonia has some great outdoor recreational spaces. But is there a park in Caledonia that could use a little extra help? Coca-Cola and Subway are looking to give away money for "America's favorite park" and I thought it would be interesting to start a discussion about which parks in Caledonia might fit that bill. Take a look at our list of parks and recreational areas in Caledonia (be careful because there are a few of them in our directory that are just outside Caledonia). Lets do a little dreaming about what we could do with that money and I'd love to see some photos of your favorite parks. I'd love to see some of the parks in Caledonia get that money.
