Summer Business for Breakfast

Mat Flosse, Meatings

Meatings was born out of a simple tradition. What started as an annual gathering of family, friends and neighbours turned into an idea for a business. After watching my Dad host backyard BBQ parties for years, I decided to carry the torch and pursue my passion for food and great times. Seeing the interest for outdoor entertainment grow in my community, I began to see the need for a company that could provide delicious barbequed food for any type of event. The turning point came when I decided to sell my beloved car and buy a pig roaster. Every 22-year-old’s dream. From there Meatings took off and hasn’t looked back. Keeping it a family affair, my brother Joey and I, along with a dedicated staff of friends and coworkers, are committed to giving each and every client the same kind of experience that can only be had by celebrating good times with better people. Our food – local, fresh and cooked to perfection – is second to none, but our promise to provide a fun, energetic and memorable experience is what sets Meatings apart from other catering companies. I can’t wait for you to join the party.

If there’s one thing I can guarantee, it’s that you can’t beat my meat.

Thanks for visiting,
