Gate City Butcher started out as a franchise, and has now become an independent locally owned business. Having a loyal customer base helps them thrive as an indie small business. This support has grown over the years, strengthened by the fact that Chris and Lisa are both Greensboro born and raised. With a knack for customer service and a love for remembering the names of customers, the Ryans give their patrons a personal experience from the moment they walk in the door.
In addition to customer service, Gate City Butcher is known for the fact that it is the only local retail store that carries the highest quality USDA Certified Angus Prime. If beef isn’t your choice, the Shoppe also sells chicken, lamb, veal and special Loch Duart Salmon from Scotland. And if you are looking for time saving convenience, you will find a delicious assortment of pre-made meals prepared in- house by Lisa. Specialties include the tomato pie and the amazing pimento cheese.
“This business gave me an outlet to get involved with all kinds of different foods, to experiment with cooking and to pass that on to customers,” says Chris.
Gate City Butcher also has a wide selection of wines not typically found in other stores. Did you ever see a wine listed on a restaurant menu that you could not find in a store? The Ryans make an effort to bring in distinctive and unique wines that you would not easily find elsewhere.
