Small Business Profile: Master Meats
One of Calgary's most reputable butchers recently opened in the Greenview Industrial Park. Owner John Wildenborg moved Calgary’s famous Master Meats almost a year ago to the new location, after it had already been in business since 1976.
John took the business over from his father, and they now employ 9 people – many having graduated from SAIT's Butchery & Charcuterie Management Program.
Master Meats does a great retail operation, and their service is very special since they cut to order! Lots of their product is sourced from the Pincher Creek area and they make their own fry sausages in-house.
I really enjoyed visiting the space: one can find all kinds of funky knick-knack decorations, from a “Bacon Shrine” to set props from the filming of Fargo’s second season.
Good luck John and team! Congrats on the new location -- it’s a pleasure serving you and Calgary-Klein!
