In 1967, Michael Winston Sr. opened Winston's Sausage. He worked as a meat cutter in the stockyards and saw a need for a place where
the Irish could shop and get the foods from home. Over the years, he refined his recipes for sausage, black and white puddings and soda bread. These are the same recipes used today.
Winston's Sausage, located on 63rd street in Chicago, still serves the Irish and American communities today. It has become a USDA processing plant that makes our own homemade Irish sausage, corned beef, and puddings and ships to many states across the country. The store has branched out to serve both the south suburbs with
Winston's Market and the Ashford House in Tinley Park, and the north side of Chicago with Winston's Everyday Market on Southport.
