Wolfsen’s Meat and Sausage as 2018 Small Business of the Year
Assemblyman Adam Gray (D-Merced) announced today the selection of Wolfsen’s Meat and Sausage of Gustine as the 2018 Small Business of the Year for the 21st Assembly District. The annual “Small Business Day” event and luncheon are organized in partnership with the California Small Business Association, and feature representatives from each of California’s Legislative districts.
Wolfsen’s began as the “West Side Locker” in the 1940s offering custom butchering for wild game hunters. The current owners purchased the business in 1988 and eventually focused in on their mission of making and selling high quality meats and sausages. Their products are made in-house and they offer over sixty kinds of smoked and fresh sausages. They are known for their “old-world style linguica,” enjoyed by many Merced County natives, and their store has attracted a regular following of customers from every corner of California.
“Wolfsen’s has been an absolute staple in our community since the beginning, and I could think of no better way to help celebrate their thirtieth anniversary in business than to nominate Vance and Donna Wolfsen for this well-deserved award,” said Gray.
