Brothers Mike & Dave Weaver are the owners. Weaver Meats was a retail butcher shop, with over 70+ feet of meat and deli cases. It was a full service operation. In the mid 1980’s they started making beef jerky and snack sticks. With their outstanding quality and savory flavor their sales really took off.
They had people coming from 3 different counties to purchase their top quality meat snacks and people wanted them to ship it out of state to friends and relatives. They also had many requests to sell their meat snacks to some local bars and taverns. However, being a retail exempt store they could not sell their products outside their immediate store in Mentor-On-The-Lake.
Therefore, after much thought and sadness (15 years of friends & customers) they sold their retail store in August 1996. Then in February 1997 ground was broken for their new state of the art USDA inspected Meat Snack processing plant in Painsville, Ohio.
They do the whole process at this location. They receive the raw product, slice or grind, season, smoke, package, and ship from the same location. This gives them total quality control over their fine products.
They process their own line of Beef Jerky and Meat Snack Sticks. They also do several lines of private label products for different companies using the customers own name.
So give them a try and see what all the excitement is about!
