Boryski’s Butcher Block is proud to be a locally-owned and family-run butcher shop located in the North Industrial area of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan. From custom cuts to wide-scale catering and events, Boryski’s Butcher Block delivers customer satisfaction and over 40 years of experience to businesses, schools, and residents alike. Our team believes in friendly service and collaboration as we continuously update our practices to reach new heights while servicing Saskatoon with traditional meat practices and quality standards.
Boryski’s Butcher Block was founded in December of 1981 in a small storefront located on Quebec Avenue. With just one display cooler for products, the demand quickly surpassed the space and Boryski’s Butcher Block moved over to its current location on Millar Avenue. Growth continued as the business quickly took on additional staff, several fresh and frozen display coolers, and new product lines for smoked meats and sausages! In the early 90s, after big box grocery stores came to town, Boryski’s Butcher Block pivoted again incorporating catering and BBQ rentals to their services.
Since then, Boryski’s Butcher Block has continued diversifying its offerings, and in 2014 we began our Food Truck Division, servicing large community events/festivals with one of the first food trucks to ever operate in Saskatoon! This addition fuelled brand recognition and fostered positive word-of-mouth as Boryski’s Butcher Block food trucks lent itself as a unique new option for public, private, and corporate catering.
The 2020 pandemic altered Boryski’s Butcher Block’s direction for growth as new challenges and opportunities arose within the meat and catering industry. Adapting once more, Boryski’s Butcher Block incorporated changes to satisfy the community amidst a period of great uncertainty and evolving needs. Catering offerings shifted to introduce hot lunch service in-store, and product lines expanded to serve nearby customers seeking quick, affordable meals.
Today, Boryski’s Butcher Block continues to impress by maintaining its reputation for quality meat cuts, while adopting new twists on old favourites to keep the spirit of creation and the craft of old-school butcher styles alive and fresh! Current offerings now include full-service catering and food trucks, daily lunch specials, BBQ rentals, wild game butchering, and fundraising programs.
Moving forward, we strive to take the lessons learned from adaptations in leadership, market demand, and the 2020 pandemic and apply them to building long-standing relationships with new and loyal customers. Now more than ever we see how food creates connection. From private family dinners to public celebratory events, Boryski’s Butcher Block is grateful to share in the memories food creates, and looks forward to many more years of trusted service.
