You could say that Dean and Len grew up in the food business. Their father and grandfather had a retail food market at 9th and Susquahana since 1947. This is where the boys got their work ethic; work hard and treat people the right way. And always give the people what they want.
In 1973 they started Wilson Beef Company, a wholesale meat supply company that served the finest restaurants and institutions in the Philadelphia area. The business grew rapidly, and soon the boys had to move to a bigger facility.
In 1981, they opened their doors to the public on weekends. Through word of mouth, our business boomed. People were calling our warehouse placing orders and picking them up on the weekends. There was a big demand to be open more hours, but it was impossible to run the retail and the wholesale business at the same location.
The boys picked a location on Aramingo Avenue and in 1983 opened their first retail store, The New Wilson Meats. Their concept was a winner; sell restaurant quality meats and poultry to the public at the same reduced prices that the restaurants paid.
Business continued to grow and in 1994, the brothers decided to start a new company. They opened Wilson's Outlet II at Adams and Rising Sun Avenues. It wasn't quite the same concept; but it was the same great quality and low pricing.
Today, in an era of big box stores, Wilson's still gives the same personal service as they did over 27 years ago. We always have plenty of butchers on hand to prepare whatever you need, the way YOU want it. Our discount deli area, features only the finest products at unbeatable prices. The poultry we sell is only all natural and as always our meats are still restaurant quality.
