Knutzen’s Meats, a retail, custom and specialty meat shop, recently expanded its Pasco facility.
The project added 400 square feet to include an additional smokehouse and sausage kitchen so Knutzen’s can make summer sausage, pepperoni, jerky and other smoked meats.
Tri-City growth has increased demand for Knutzen’s retail and smoked meats, and the new sausage kitchen will help meet those needs by providing a greater volume of smoked specialty meats.
Building and equipment costs were $225,000. The project was completed May 31.
Knutzen’s Meats is at 6404 W. Court St., next to the Pasco Grange building.
Steve and Leigh Ann Knutzen are the owners of the family-owned and -operated business.
Steve has been in the meat business for more than 45 years, offering custom processing, a quality (choice or better) retail meat counter and various smoked meats.
The store also carries various seasonings, sauces, soups and vegetables. Videos about meat processing and how to cook various meats cuts can be found online at knutzensmeats.com.
