Butcher on the Block is a gourmet meat and deli market that has one main focus; to serve the community with the finest quality products available. My name is Tom Yucuis and I am the owner of Butcher on the Block.
I started in the business when I was 17 years old slaughtering cows, pigs, and sheep. I have been a meat cutter and managed meat markets for several large food chain companies, which led me to learn many aspects of the meat industry.
My desire to be the best led me to commodities trading, market analysis and a nomination by my peers to hold a position as new product development director for the National Pork Producers Council. However, I realized that being president of a worldwide meat trading company was not enough. After finding the location at 4660 W. Algonquin Road in Lake in the Hills, I decided to fulfill my lifelong dream.
