OVER A CENTURY OF QUALITY

Finding a Better Way Since ’83 (That’s 1883)

Oscar F. Mayer (the actual man; did you know there was an actual man?) began selling quality meats with his brother Gottfried over 125 years ago in Chicago. They ran their small butcher shop with a code we still follow today. Salami hanged to dry for at least 30 days. Bacon smoked for 12 hours over real hardwood. The WIENERMOBILE might be a funny car, but there’s no funny business in our food. Because as Oscar believed, “There’s always a better way.” More than a century later, we’re still committed to finding a better way in everything we do.
