Buckhead Beef was established in 1983 with a handful of devoted employees and a very simple operating philosophy: to provide the finest quality products at the best prices. Operated in a cost-efficient manner, Buckhead Beef is totally committed to customer satisfaction and service.
Buckhead Beef has been ranked #1 for the previous nine years of Certified Angus Beef worldwide and grew to become one of the largest privately-owned meat purveyors in the United States prior to joining the SYSCO family of operating companies on August 20, 1999 as a Meat Specialty Company.
Buckhead Beef operates in Atlanta, GA; Buckhead Beef NE in South Plainfield, NJ; and Buckhead Beef FL in Auburndale, FL. These three locations leverage a network of 20 sales and distribution centers along the Eastern seaboard and into the Caribbean. The two newest Buckhead Beef companies, Buckhead NE and Buckhead Beef FL, are centrally located to all metropolitan areas and features daily delivery to New York, Philadelphia, Boston, Miami, Ft. Lauderdale, and Orlando.
In 1996, The Buckhead Beef Company gained international recognition while serving as the official supplier of meat and seafood products of the Atlanta Centennial Olympic Games.
The Buckhead Beef brand has become synonymous with quality nationwide. Breed and geographic-oriented sourcing, packer level alliances and premium programs continually raise industry standards while strengthening Buckhead Beef's position as the industry's leading protein supplier.
Buckhead Beef has become the premier Center of the Plate" purveyor, specializing in portion control cut steaks, and stocks the largest inventory of dry aged USDA Prime and Certified Angus Beef in the United States.
In addition to maintaining a fully autonomous sales and distribution operation, Buckhead Beef is responsible for the meat procurement and premium cut steaks of several sister SYSCO operating companies in both the Northeast and Southeastern regions. SYSCO Corporation introduced the Buckhead Beef brand as the preeminent brand found in traditional operating companies east of the Rockies. Operators from New York to New Orleans, Mobile to Miami have taken advantage of the quality and consistency associated with the Buckhead Beef brand.
Buckhead Beef is as much a philosophy as it is a brandable entity. From product procurement, cutting, and packaging to delivery, Buckhead Beef embodies the mission statement: Provide the best possible product at the best possible price.
