Who is Famous Fritz?

*** Kootenay Business names Thomas as one of its Top 10 Business People. Click here to read the article. ***

Thomas emigrated from Europe with no money in his pockets, but with dreams of establishing a butcher shop and delicatessen in Canada. Having learned how to make the finest European Sausages from his father, a Master Sausage Maker and Butcher, Thomas landed in the beautiful Creston Valley where he established Famous Fritz Meats and Deli in 2005.

Thanks to overwhelming support from the community, Thomas has grown his business from day one. Famous Fritz's customers love the quality of his meats and with good reason: He adds nothing to the meat products beyond raw meat and the spices found in his original family recipes.

You will find no fillers, binders, sugars or MSG in any of our meat products. We ONLY add the finest spices and the sausages we produce are naturally gluten-free. We are proud to say we have lots of satisfied customers, so if you haven't made it to our store yet, please stop by soon. We love to give out samples! And our prices are competitive with the large grocery chains even though our quality is considerably higher. You have our word on that.

  Sincerely, Your FAMOUS FRITZ TEAM
