Buzz Buttered Steaksare the product on which our company was built. Created by Mark Hill of Hy-Grade Sales and popularized throughout Appalachia by creative, strategic advertising, Buzz Buttered Steaks became a household name and a beloved brand. A "Deliciously Different" meal made from pure beef and real butter, Buzz Buttered Steaks quickly gained popularity on family dinner tables and in lunch pails throughout the Appalachian coalfields and beyond. Easy to prepare, the steaks caught on as fans created their own recipes ranging from sandwiches to center-of-the-plate entrees. More than fifty years later, loyal fans of Buzz Buttered Steaks remember them being "the first thing my mother ever let me cook."
The legend around Buzz Buttered Steaks grew even wider in 1976 when thieves stole a Buzz truck containing more than six tons of the popular product. By the time a multi-state manhunt ended, more than a dozen well-fed accomplices were charged with distributing stolen goods. As publicity around the case grew, Buzz Buttered Steaks experienced record sales and the rest, as they say, is history.
In the decades since Buzz Buttered Steaks were first introduced, our business has changed considerably. Today, Buzz Buttered Steaks represent less than 2% of our overall sales volume and are just ONE of the 3,000+ items that we stock in inventory and sell every day. But naturally, they have a special place in our hearts. We're proud to tell you that they are still available in most Kroger, Foodland, Food Fair, Fas Chek and independent grocery stores. If you're not able to find them, please just ask the meat manager for Buzz Buttered Steaks by name.
