My Shopping List
Until 1973, Edwin & Sophie Salsburg, along with sons Bill, Paul & Rick, operated a meat business in the Pennsylvania Dutch farm country near Reading, PA. After selling the business, the family brought its old world secrets to South Florida & created Penn Dutch Food Center.
In 1975, the store opened in Hollywood with 17 employees in a 17,000 square feet facility. Expansions over the years have increased the size of the Hollywood location to its current 40,000 square feet with over 200 employees. In addition to the growth of the original store, we've expanded & opened a 2nd location in Margate. On March 18th, 2004, we had the grand opening of our Margate facility which is 70,000 square feet with 250 team members!
The 2nd generation of family has passed the torch to the 3rd generation, Greg Salsburg (President), Kara Salsburg Boehly (Marketing Director), Micah Salsburg (Assistant Store Manager for Hollywood) & Sophy Salsburg (Margate Bakery). They are following in their footsteps and growing the business on great customer service & fresh products!
THE SECRET TO OUR LOW PRICES
People are always asking how it is possible for us to keep our prices so low and still bring you the highest quality products that far surpass other stores. The secret to our special retail store's low prices is how we operate. Unlike the retail chain supermarkets, the half of a million pounds of meat we receive each week is processed by us, all under one roof, before packaging and selling it. There is no middleman involved. Everything is done on the premises of Penn Dutch in our own kitchens and smokehouses. That is our secret to our low prices, fresh product, and high quality.
We take pride in the care with which we process their meats. Our buildings house modern stainless steel machinery, including five smokehouses where we hickory smoke hams, bacon, sausages and just about anything! Each smokehouse is equipped with a computerized control panel to regulate the temperature, humidity, and airflow and smoke intensity inside the smokehouse.
Through the years, Penn Dutch has evolved into much more than just a specialty meat store. Not only do we have the freshest and tastiest meats around, but we also have the highest quality seafood, deli, produce, freshly made in-store baked goods, wine, beer, cheeses from around the world and various grocery items.
In 2003, we were voted the "best fresh seafood" in South Florida and also the "Best Deli & Butcher shop in South Florida! In 2008, we were voted one of the top ten supermarkets to shop in the country!!!
We look forward to serving you.
See you in the store!
