Nashville, TN (WTVF) — Porter Road Butcher’s business is expanding in the midst of an online meat ordering boom.
During the pandemic, customers were able to get pasture-grown food to their doors. Chris Carter, co-founder of Porter Road Butcher, said:
Carter said he had acquired customers nationwide as he faced a shortage of grocery stores. “We actually ship all steaks and chops fresh, unfrozen,” he said.
With an emphasis on sustainability, it was clicked for meat lovers. “Even our insulation is a corn-based material that can flush drains,” Carter said.
The meat delivery boom last year has more than doubled the revenue of this business. “It was very important for us not to raise prices or do anything like that through a pandemic,” Carter said. It seems to have worked. Currently, they are moving to a 28,000-square-foot USDA processing facility in Princeton, Kentucky. It is five times as large as the current one.
“Currently, we have 53 employees. Moving to a new facility will add another 30 to the roster,” Carter said.
As part of its wholesale business, it also offers several local restaurants such as Arnold’s country kitchen and rockland tables. Butcher shops in East Nashville are still doing well. Their 10th anniversary is September.
