Southern Steer Franchise Opportunity

A neighborhood butcher is what every community needs

There are some businesses that every community needs – and a neighborhood butcher is one of them. Southern Steer was founded in 2013 with the goal of being that butcher in Clearwater, Florida and the community met us with such enthusiasm that we quickly grew to a second location. By offering the highest quality meats and complimentary gourmet groceries, we continue to win over new fans and our sales have increased dramatically. In 2020, as restaurants shut down and Americans learned the joys of cooking at home, Southern Steer had our best year ever with record-breaking sales that show no signs of slowing down.

Now, we’re franchising to help entrepreneurs bring a neighborhood butcher shop to communities across Florida, and eventually the nation. We’ve proven our business model, provide exceptional training & ongoing support, and our visionary leadership team has decades of experience in helping entrepreneurs excel in business.

If you’re passionate about people and believe that your community deserves high quality meats delivered by unmatched customer service, investing in a Southern Steer franchise is a wise choice.
