About Us.

Corner Kitchen is all about passion.

Chef Shannon's passion for food grew from his Granny as he spent many a day at her side while she cooked at local Detroit rectories or was creating one of her delicious Italian specialties at home. His first memory of smell is of Granny making him bacon and eggs on a Saturday morning.

Corner Kitchen is all about passion. Passion to create great food and passion to make your dining experience enjoyable and memorable. We focus our attention to you, our guest, in making you feel welcomed and catered to while you’re with us. Great attention was put into our establishment and great attention is paid to what we offer and prepare on a daily basis. Our menu offers a variety of options and we offer daily features for even more variety. Homemade is a word we love to write for our menu items and we hope it shows.

Meet Chef Shannon

Shannon Nowowiecki

Head Chef

Chef Shannon completed his culinary studies at Scottsdale Community College in December of 2011. He served as chef of several baseball teams at their training facilities in Arizona. He worked for the renowned catering company, M Culinary Concepts, as a Chef for such events as the WM Phoenix Open and the Barrett Jackson Auto Auction. Additionally, he worked for Rojo Hospitality Group at the Primetime Grill for Super Bowl XLIX and the Pro Bowl along with the 2015 College Football National Championship game.

He started SOUP4YOU in November of 2017. SOUP4YOU took a brief hiatus in the summer of 2017 while Chef Shannon ran the 2nd story Food Truck at Mike’s On The Water. His life-long dream has been to own a restaurant and he appreciates your patronage.

Meet Aimee

Aimee Spencer Co-owner Corner Kitchen

Aimee Walker

Co-Owner

Aimee is the friendly face you first see when you walk in the door. She’s the kind voice on the phone that can’t wait to take your order. She never forgets your name and has this incredible memory of your favorite features or what item you don’t want on your order. Aimee is that person who can’t wait to hear how your vacation went, how the kids are doing in school and truly wants to see the photos of your dog dressed for the holidays. She is the magic that radiates the memorable experience you always have when you’re ordering or dining in at Corner Kitchen.

Born and raised on the East side of Metro Detroit, Aimee spent decades in the hospitality industry, working in different capacities of Metro Detroit’s most coveted bars and restaurants. Aimee managed to successfully juggle a demanding schedule while paying her own way through Wayne State University, eventually earning a Bachelor’s of Science in Business. Throughout her career, Aimee earned her real estate license and has worked in other small businesses helping owners and leaders build their client relationship platforms.

When Aimee took the leap of faith to open Corner Kitchen with Chef Shannon Nowowiecki, she vowed to build a destination that guests couldn’t wait to return to. She was raised by a strong mother who instilled the value of hard work, authenticity and always putting her guests first. “We’re blessed to have an establishment our community constantly supports and rallies around,” Aimee said. “We never take this support for granted. We know there are so many places our guests could spend their hard-earned dollars at and the fact they keep returning to our restaurant, sometimes day after day, makes me feel so fortunate and validates the fact we’re on the right path.”

When Aimee is not spending endless hours growing the Corner Kitchen brand and business, she enjoys relaxing with her 14-year-old Havanese, Sanchez.

"I’ve tried 4 different soups, each one uniquely flavorful. I can’t wait to try some others. Italian Wedding Soup is amazing, but so is Cheeseburger and Potato Leek and Chicken Peasant. Excellent pricing and service!"
