About: 4505 Meats Story
Welcome to 4505 Meats. We’re a family owned company based in San Francisco, founded by chef Ryan Farr in January 2009. The company launched with one product, our lighter-than-air chicharrones, or “crispity clouds of porkaliciousness,” followed by our bacon-studded hot dogs. The business has grown from there: We now operate stands at Farmers’ Markets city-wide, where we sell retail cuts of meat, “the best damn cheeseburger,” made with beef we butcher and grind ourselves, and other meaty treats. We opened a full-service whole animal butcher shop in the Mission District in 2012, where we sell responsibly and sustainably raised meat sourced from farms in Northern California. In 2013, we launched our restaurant, 4505 Burgers & BBQ, which serves—you guessed it—burgers, 4505 Meats-style barbecue and more.
