It began in 2010. Co-founders James Peisker and Chris Carter decided to start their own catering business. As the business grew, they realized how hard it was to get their hands on quality, local meat from sources they could trust. So they decided to take matters into their own hands, and started their own butcher shop. Today, Porter Road works with select farms, and expertly hand-cuts every piece at their Kentucky facility. While the butcher shop has become a cult favorite for people who live nearby, Chris and James realized that friends and family outside of Nashville were still stuck eating low quality, grocery store meat. In 2017, they decided to take Porter Road online with the goal of making the world’s best meat accessible nationwide.
