DETROIT – A butcher shop that got its start in Eastern Market is making its way back to the area after being closed for 17 years.

Strauss Bros. Co. announced Wednesday that they will be occupying the spot that was previously Beau Bien Fine Foods. The brick and mortar location will have a storefront at 2478 Riopelle Street adjacent to Henry the Hatter. The original location that Strauss Bros. Co. worked out of from the 1950s to the early 2000s was at 2740 Orleans Street in Eastern Market.

According to a press release from the company, they aim to open later this year as a retail storefront selling the brand’s product line of sauces and seasoning blends. There will also be an operating kitchen that will allow food service out of the Riopelle Street storefront. The Strauss brothers write that they aim to offer lunch catering and own a food truck by 2023.

Currently, Strauss Bros. Co. seasonings are sold throughout Metro Detroit and in 11 states.
