Here is our story.
The Chop Shop is a family owned and operated business since 1971. We are a high quality butcher shop and grocer located in Manatee County, Florida with everything from gourmet items to everyday savings. Our owner, Doug Stivers, served in the Air Force and then as a NYC police officer before returning to his home state of Kentucky to open his own general store. A few years later he moved his family to Florida to partner with his brother Boyd “Steve” Stivers and his wife Pat. Steve Stivers had been in the meat business his entire career before opening The Chop Shop in 1971. Throughout the 48 years, The Chop Shop has been committed to the promise of customer satisfaction and today their promise is the same. Satisfaction is guaranteed. After all, the best meals start with the best ingredients. Come check out The Chop Shop, where quality matters.
