April Fools’ Day is a Special Day For Us!
April 1, 1975, Bob and Earl purchased an existing market (Ranch House Meats) in Des Moines and opened their second location, B & E Meats and Seafood. Although things started slowly, they picked up and and today B & E is a landmark and one of Des Moines' oldest and best known businesses.
April 1, 1999, after nearly 40 successful years in the meat business, Bob and Earl retired. But the two markets stayed in the family and are now owned by Bob’s son and daughter-in-law, Jeff and Trisha Green. The business has continued to grow thanks to friendly staff and high-quality, unique products.
As you can see, April Fools’ Day is a lucky and prosperous day for the Green family. Great things happen on that day. We hope great things happen for you, too!
Stay tuned as we plan our 60-year anniversary celebrations this year.
