The Beginning...

In 1910, John Fischer, a German sausage maker opened the first meat shop in Issaquah, Washington.  John’s two boys, Nick and George, grew up working in their dad’s meat shop and took over the business when their father retired in the 1950’s. 

"My fiancé and I swung in recently to pick up some meat and just wanted to say WOW - the Southwest stuffed chicken, Cordon Bleu & Ribeye were AMAZING. The kind woman working also gave us a pound of burger for our first visit and I can honestly say it was some of the best ground beef I have ever had. "

- Cathy G.


The two sons continued to operate the business until 1981, when Chris & Jacque Chiechi bought the business from them.  Chris started working in his uncle’s butcher shop when he was 14 so buying Fischer Meats fulfilled his life-long dream. 

New owners

After nearly 42 years, Chris and Jacque have retired. Their long-time employee and right-hand man, Josh McGehe and his wife Corissa, have taken over ownership. Josh, Corissa, and the crew look forward to continuing the legacy of Fischer Meats.

"We have been customers of Fischer Meats for 20 years.  Their quality, selection and service surpass any other source for meats.  As long as they are here, all of our meat will come from Fischers!"

- Bob and Maura
