The Doellstedt family has a long tradition in the quality meat and sausage making business.
Their family proudly built this tradition from a foundation that was started with two generations of Master Butchers in Germany.
In 1982, we saw a need for a premium dinner sausage
that combined traditional Southern style sausage making with high quality ingredients.
Using that philosophy, Showboat Sausage was born!
Originally marketed to Northern California independent stores,
Showboat Sausage quickly became California’s favorite sausage brand..
The Showboat recipe is still a closely guarded secret because our special blend of spices and quality cuts of beef make it a a highly desired, unique, high quality sausage with just the right kick.
