About Moo & Oink
Best Chicago Meat Co., LLC, purchased Moo & Oink’s intellectual property at public auction on Dec. 14, 2011. The four Moo & Oink stores – three in Chicago and one in Hazel Crest - filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy in late September, 2011. Because there were no bidders on the real estate, the stores will remain closed.
Purchased by Best Chicago Meat were Moo & Oink’s name, logo, characters, website, commercial jingle and perhaps most important – its recipes.
Twenty eight popular Moo & Oink products are on grocery shelves at more than 300 stores throughout Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin and Michigan, including 26 Jewel-Osco locations in and around Chicago.
