A crucial element to living a healthy lifestyle is being able to obtain high quality products at an affordable price. Those who live healthy lifestyles know that this does not come cheap. Time and time again, we found ourselves working harder but recovering slower because the food we needed to sustain ourselves was out of our reach due to ridiculous prices and lack of quantity.
The days of sacrificing quality and quantity have come to an end.
Strong Meat Co.’s goal is to provide the best top quality meats and provisions to the general public at prices that do not make it hard to sustain yourself. We were established in early 2018 by six close friends with a wide range of backgrounds—fitness, grocery, retail, marketing—who recognized a major void in the fitness industry.
Chief Executive Officer
Jon is a successful businessman and entrepreneur who co-owns multiple Meat and Seafood Markets throughout Southern California. Originally pursuing a career in the aviation industry, Jon became involved in his friends family business which started with one small market in Santa Ana. After 2 years the business expanded rapidly and today 7 Meat & Seafood markets along with 2 restaurants currently operate in Orange County under the brand name La Bahia De Acapulco Markets & Restaurants. As the markets & restaurants began to takeoff, Jon along with his partner began venturing outside of their business to look for new opportunities.
In 2017, Jon along with five other friends realized a major void in the grocery store industry. There was nothing that provided quality meats and provisions in bulk to those who consume more than others at an affordable price. With that in mind, Jon and his friends began holding "flash sales" at local gyms while using his markets as a foundation to execute these sales. These flash sales were purely targeting bodybuilders, bikini models, strongmen, and athletes who require more food then others to sustain themselves. After 3 months of creating a consistent clientele, Jon and his team formed Strong Meat Company.
In 2018, Strong Meat Company began targeting Fire Departments to provide all their stations needs from food to janitorial supplies. Coming from an extended family of firefighters, Jon recognized the nuisance shopping for groceries was for firefighters. After rolling out Strong Meat Co's Firefighter Service program it quickly expanded to 3 different counties in Southern California servicing more than 15 departments in just under three months and still growing today.
Today, Strong Meat Company has grown into a well known meat and provisions distributor in Southern California for athletes, fire departments, and families. Jon's background and leadership help Strong Meat Co provide quality meats and provisions at unbelievably low prices.
