What Training & Support Do You Provide?

Southern Steer franchise support means you’ll never be alone in business

Owning a butcher shop franchise with Southern Steer requires zero experience as a butcher. Our CEO and Founder, Greg Snyder, had zero experience in the butcher industry when he opened the doors to the first Southern Steer location in 2013.

He knew from his significant experience in the restaurant industry that he could recruit top talent to perform the butchery, and by managing product to reduce waste, keeping labor costs low, and focusing most importantly on customer service, he could have a successful, profitable business.

Eight years later, his business is more successful than ever. And now, Southern Steer is franchising across the country to help other entrepreneurs realize their own dreams of owning a successful butcher shop in their communities.

“We spent the last eight years proving the business model,” Snyder says. “It’s as straightforward as it gets and we’ve made all the mistakes so that our franchise owners don’t have to make them. We know exactly what it takes to be successful in a butcher shop business and we want to pass that on to entrepreneurs who share our passion for community, customer service, and delivering a great product.”
