Minder Meats began in Kitsap County in 1943. The Minder's were sausage makers in Switzerland in the late 1800's. Alfred Minder immigrated to the US in 1890 to Bozeman, Montana, where he owned a farm, traded horses with the US Army and opened a meat market on Main Street. His oldest of 11 children, George, moved to Washington with his wife Janice in 1943, along with brother's John, Harold, Joe, and Jim, and opened Minder Brother's Meats on South Cambrian Avenue. In the late 1960's, George built up one of the most prestigious Black Angus Herds in the Pacific Northwest. At one time, numbering 200 head of Prime Registered Angus. With his heart failing, he sold most of his herd, some to the Stuart Anderson, head of the Black Angus Restaurant fame.
George patented the Mindermold which was used it making the "Chip Steak". He opened a plant in Spokane and Seattle, before selling out in 1953. George built the Silverdale Shopping Center, one of the regions first strip malls. Today, it houses Silverdale State Bank and the Meat Locker Sound Studio's. During the early 1970's, Marlyn, George's only child, and her husband, W. James Carlson, assumed ownership and management of the company. Today, Minder Meats is run by James Minder Carlson, Georges Grandson. Minder Meats is located in a 9600 square foot, USDA Inspected facility. We sell hand-selected, Mid-western, Corn-fed Beef and USDA Choice, Prime Black Angus Beef along with a full range of poultry, pork, and seafood to over 250 Hotels, Restaurants, and Institutions in the Puget Sound Region.
