Today's Special: Monticello meat shop opening next month

MONTICELLO — A Champaign couple with experience in restaurant work is opening a meat shop early next year in Piatt County.

Andrew and Rebekah Bradley said Sangamon Meats and Sausage Co. will open in late January in downtown Monticello.

The husband currently works at a restaurant; the wife has degrees in culinary arts and restaurant management.

The Bradleys described the new business as a combination retail and wholesale meat shop. While they plan on providing meat to area restaurants, the couple will also sell food to folks who walk through the door to shop in their sales lobby.

"We're not going to deal with whole carcasses you want butchered; we won't take them," Andrew Bradley said. "What we do is take boxed meat and divide it into retail cuts."
