About Schweigert™ Meats
Ray Schweigert opened his first retail store in north Minneapolis in the spring of 1937. It was a neighborhood mercantile specializing in fresh and cured meat along with groceries and general merchandise. Schweigert's customers were the local residents of the neighborhood. In those days, the market was no further than a short walk to the corner. Word spread that Schweigert Meat Co. had the best, and soon a home delivery truck was added.
Within three years in the summer of 1940, Schweigert Meat Co. had grown to be the top meat shop in the area and Ray Schweigert moved to a larger plant location at 26th and Emerson in Minneapolis. With this move he added three more delivery trucks that served St. Paul and St. Cloud. It was at this location that Schweigert Meat Co. remained for almost 33 years and grew to include a fleet of more than 30 delivery trucks servicing Minnesota and parts of Iowa, Wisconsin and North Dakota.
In 1983, Schweigert Meats moved to the current location in Albert Lea, Minn., with the brand eventually becoming a member of the Cargill family, where to this day it continues to carry on Ray Schweigert's tradition of making quality meats for local tastes. http://www.schweigertmeats.com.
