The story of Rastelli isn’t about food so much as it is about our passion for great food. Food you can feel good about eating. Good about buying. Good about serving to your family.
Our passion for great food began in 1975 when Ray Rastelli, Jr. opened a butcher shop called the Meat Stop in Deptford, NJ. He loved bringing quality meat to Deptford-area families so much, within a few years his brother Tony joined him and opened a second Meat Stop, and together they went on to open a total of eight more around South Jersey. Together with their families, they transformed the stores into a growing business that allows them to serve the same great, quality products to families around the country.
Today, we’re still passionate about food, committed to excellence, and family owned and operated. We believe in hard work and doing things the right way. Above all, we respect the trust that you put in us to bring only the best food to your table. Everything we do and every decision we make begins with the intention of earning that trust. Your 100-percent satisfaction is not simply a goal; it is a promise we make to ourselves and to you—our customers. And, a daily affirmation that everything we do is “For the love of great food.”
