Reece Block is coming back to a familiar place. Block, a recent University of Wisconsin-Whitewater graduate who hails from Oconomowoc, worked at Mama Mia's for a number of years before taking a marketing role with Sysco, a food and service business.

When he was 16, Block started at Mama Mia's in Wales as a host. He went on to became the general manager for that location, as well as the Brookfield Mama Mia's.
