Business Overview

This beloved butcher, deli and sandwich shop has been a source of quality meats and sandwiches in the Santa Clarita Valley since 1974. They provide exceptional quality cuts of prime choice beef, pork, and chicken. In addition to the standard fare expected in a meat market, they provide marinated chicken, kabobs, stuffed baked potatoes; everything needed for a ready-made dinner. Tri-tip, chicken, and ribs have been barbequed daily on the premises – bringing in many customers and providing very low-cost marketing for those driving by.

In addition to their popular tri-tip sandwiches, the store would generate 200 sandwiches a day, piled high with top-of-the-line Boar’s Head delimeat and other quality ingredients. This shop is known for its custom blended seasoning and barbecue sauces. They are so popular that customers order them from all over the United States and get them shipped to their home. While business has been steadily growing over the past few years, the holidays were especially busy with customers relying on the store for their Thanksgiving turkey, or their Christmas prime rib dinner.

Unfortunately, the recent owner passed unexpectedly and the business is now sitting idle waiting for someone with a love for people and the community to step into this very rare opportunity to own a local icon.
