Cass Corridor food hall Detroit Shipping Company is on the hunt for a new food vendor after Windsor's Bread Meats Bread couldn't obtain a visa to operate in the United States. 

"It is with a heavy heart and a sad stomach that we announce Bread Meats Bread will not be joining our roster of restaurants," Detroit Shipping Company posted to social media last week. "After a significant investment and a prolonged and dedicated effort to obtain their visa (they're from Windsor), they were denied and have had to withdraw. We blame the Trump-Trudeau beef."

Made of 22 shipping containers, the 10,000-square-foot food hall opened in July with Mexican food from Bruno Tacos & Tapas, Southeast Asian-inspired street food from Bangkok 96 Restaurant in Dearborn and Caribbean-fusion food from Coop. Detroit Shipping Company also has a full bar, outdoor beer garden, podcast studio, art gallery and performance space. 

More upcoming food businesses are set to debut soon, including -320 Coffee & Creamery and Motor Burger, which is also from Windsor. 

Restaurateurs interested in applying for the open vendor slot should visit

Detroit Shipping Company is located at 474 Peterboro in Detroit. 

Craft sandwich restaurant Bread Meats Bread has a Windsor shop in operation at 33 Chatham E. St. The menu is full of pop culture references like a brisket sandwich called Who Shot J.R. and a veggie option named Lisa Simpson.
