It was 1893 in Salt Lake City, Utah,
a humble little meat market opened its doors on Main street, offering fresh cut meats to all its customers. The floors were covered with sawdust and deliveries were made around the city by icebox wagons pulled by a team of horses. Every customer was known by name and each order was specifically cut to the desires of the customer. Some things have changed but some things have stayed the same and so it is with Palace Meat Company too.
In 1947 Palace Meat Company was owned by Earnest Roland and was Located at 375 South 200 west (which is currently 300 West) across from Pioneer Park. That same year it was purchased from Mr. Roland by Walter Pace. Walter, or Walt as we called, he had high hopes of growing the humble little meat market into something bigger but without losing that special personal touch paid to each of its customers.
Walt, and his partners Dean Pace and Walt’s son Earl Pace worked diligently to link Palace Meats name to the ideals of Honesty and Quality. In 1954 Walt discovered that the rent was going up. So Walt, Dean, and Earl decided that if they were going to have to pay more it might as well be an investment. So they purchased the land were the current Palace Meat stands and built a new home for Palace Meat.
After Walt’s passing his son, Earl, Dean and later on Earl’s son Rand continued to develop Palace Meat into the Company Rand’s grandfather took such pride in. This is when Palace meat began its evolution into what it is today. The Company is currently owned and operated by the third generation of the Pace family, Rand Pace. Rand still holds true to the ideas developed by his grandfather. Quality product and honest dealings with the customer. The floors are no longer covered in sawdust and deliveries are now made by refrigerated trucks but knowing the customer by name and making their order to their specifications still holds very true. It’s our hope that you’ll let our family serve you in the traditions of times past.
