We are always looking for more places to better serve our customers.  The Cheese Encounter at 282 Bay Street is our main outlet for our beef jerky, marinated steaks, meatballs, sausages, kielbasa and other tasty products.  And if you don't see your favourite product in the cooler or the freezer, please, please, please ask!  We are busy and we might not have had time to restock.  

And if you have an 'old favourite' that you don't see, please mention in to Matt or Deanna so they can remind us to get it back into the store.

As well as in our hometown of Thunder Bay, our products can be found across Ontario.  Please check back often to see updates.


For those of you that live out of town and don't yet have a store nearby to purchase your favourite flavour of beef jerky, please send us a note or call the store.  We can ship product anywhere in Ontario (sorry, we can't send it out of province yet) and have it at your house or your office within a couple of days. It's our pleasure to send it to you!
