Highland – Meier’s Meats and Fine Foods officially opened its doors in Highland with a ribbon cutting on Thursday. The shop sells meats, deli foods, artisan breads and other bakery items.
The Meier family has a long history in the food business. Robert C. Meier began his career in the fine food industry in 1945, working as a butcher. He later opened the family’s first store in Holladay. For the past three decades, descendant Marshall Meier has owned and operated the butcher shop within The Store, said his son, Matt Meier.
The father-son pair recently decided to launch a new venture together, opening Meier’s Meats and Fine Foods in Highland. “My father always had a dream to open up his own shop,” said Matt Meier. “And years ago, he fell in love with this area.”
Meier’s Meats offers “high-end, high-quality cuts of meat, as well as the expertise of a butcher who is a fourth-generation butcher,” said Meier. Additionally, the store has fresh salads, deli side dishes and freshly made bakery items.
Meier said the store has “a different type of product” than national chain grocery stores. “You can go anywhere and buy groceries,” he said. “Where we’ve got an advantage is in our different departments. Nobody has what we have. Nobody does it quite like we do.”
The store also carries more than 40 “Meier’s-Made” entrees that are made from scratch each day. It also offers catered meals. “Everything we do, we do to a certain quality standard,” he said.
Located at 5521 Timpanogos Highway, Meier’s Meats and Fine Foods will be open six days a week from 7 a.m. – 9 p.m.
