Ludington Meat Company is coming to Mason County this fall, offering a premier meat market, butcher block, deli, smokehouse, barbecue and bar – promising to be both a convenience for local shoppers and a culinary destination for visitors to West and Northern Michigan. And it can even be a place to meet friends for a bite and a drink.
Ludington Meat Company opens late fall at 3815 US-10 off of US-31 in Ludington. Construction build-out has already begun in the 14,600 square-foot building that served as a former Staples store.
“It has always been our lifelong dream to open a meat market destination in our hometown of Ludington,” said co-owner Corey Sanders. “We have a passion for manufacturing, curing, and smoking quality meats. We are thrilled to bring a new brand of meat products to this region of Michigan to serve our community and those who visit.”
Ludington Meat Company will offer an extensive variety of fresh smoked meats; fresh and frozen beef, pork, poultry, fish and seafood; plus accompaniments.
“We want to offer a large variety of quality products and be a ‘one-stop-shop’ with everything you need for a perfect meal, special occasion, large party or gathering,” said co-owner Alec Sanders. “We also plan to stock as many Michigan-made products as possible.”
The store will feature on-site smokehouses for cooking the company’s own signature brand of smoked meat products, butcher block and market with extensive meat product line, full-service deli counter, deer processing center, in-house taproom/grill and outdoor patio/beer garden.
The store also will serve as a specialty grocer, offering fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables; grilling accompaniments like fresh breads, spices, sauces, marinades, condiments and cheeses; wine, craft and domestic beer; and picnic/camping supplies.
The business will employ 20 staff in a combination of full-time and part-time positions. Visit ludingtonmeatco.com for job application forms or more information.
