When Ray Rastelli Jr. opened the Meat Stop as an 18-year-old, his first goal was to stay in business. His second goal was to add more customers. His dream didn’t go further than that – at first. He never dreamed of being able to add additional stores years later. He never dreamed of turning his butcher shop into a meat processing operation and distribution center that would ultimately supply meat to clients all over the country. And he certainly never imagined his business would go global.
