WE’RE STILL MAKING SAUSAGE THE SAME WAY WE LEARNED IN THE OLD WORLD
Anton Stiglmeier mastered the secrets of sausage making as an apprentice growing up in Munich. Meanwhile, his future wife Gertraud was learning how to sell sausage in Garmisch, a small town nestled in the Bavarian Alps.
When they immigrated to Chicago in the 1950s, they brought with them all the tastes and traditions of their native Bavaria—a land known for Oktoberfest, great beer, and delicious sausage. It’s on these traditions, along with their old-fashioned family values, that they founded Stiglmeier Sausage Co. in 1960.
And with the addition of their children John and Elizabeth, their family has been making their authentic German sausage ever since.
What comes out of the grinder depends on what goes into it.
Thousands of sausage lovers enjoy Stiglmeier sausage each year. As business outgrew our shop in Chicago, we moved to a state-of-the-art “wurstküche” in Wheeling, Illinois. Here, we combine the freshest, high-quality meats and spices we can get our hands on, and grind them into over 50 varieties of gourmet German sausages and deli meats.
