Our Story

Branding Iron was formally introduced to the world in 2013 after combining two great family-owned businesses: Holten Meats and Rochester Meat Company. We’ve combined the best of both companies with facilities, teams, and distribution. Under the Branding Iron flag, our unified “customer-centric” philosophy is foremost—putting your reputation before ours, to provide the best performing burgers in any cooking situation.

You’ve probably enjoyed one of Branding Iron’s many meat products in your favorite restaurants. We are pleased to bring our BIG BOX Burgers to your local grocery store and to your table.
