Meatings was born in 2012 out of a simple tradition. What started as an annual gathering of family, friends and neighbours turned into an idea for something bigger. After watching my Dad host backyard barbecue parties for years, I decided to carry the torch and pursue my passion for good food and great times. Seeing the appetite for outdoor entertainment grow in my community, I began to realize the need for a company that could provide delicious food for any type of event. I sold my truck, bought my first pig roaster and hit the ground running.
After catering several events, someone from Beau’s Brewery reached out to me to cater their wedding. Not having experience creating a full wedding menu, I turned to family for help. My dad helped me with the meat and my grandparents made the sides and salads. The evening was a hit.
After years of success in the catering business, my natural entrepreneurial spirit told me to seek out more business opportunities. I brought family friend, Carol Hunt, as my business partner and together, our first restaurant opened it’s doors in January 2017. The following year, we expanded to a second location where we had our catering kitchen. We worked hard, catered over 100 events in a single summer, won awards & fed a lot of our community.
As business continued to grow, we saw the need for further expansion. In 2020, we opened our first retail store, moved our restaurant, catering kitchen & offices all under one roof. Meatings HQ was born!
Since day one, our priority has been to support local and help our community whenever we can. From sponsoring hockey teams, to donating to our local food bank & supporting local businesses, we pride ourselves in that Meatings is a community driven, family run business.
