In 2022, The Meat Shoppe Inc., which was founded by Rick and Judy Keller, began it's 38th year. The on- and off-premise catering business is located in the Gering Civic Center. Our location allows us to host groups from 10 to 700. The Civic Center, located on The Old Oregon Trail, averages more than 55,000 attendees per year in the City of Gering.
We will also cater any special occasion and bring the food to your office, home or event site. The largest catered event was the 2014 Cattleman's Ball. We served prime rib, augratin potatoes and BBQ green beans to over 3500 attendees. The Cattlemen's Ball is the largest Nebraska fundraiser for Cancer research and this year raised over $1.5 million. The Meat Shoppe serves 500-600 Civic Center attendees frequently. We have the professional staff to provide fine food and excellent service for your next special event. Our family-recipe garlic sausage is made on-site by Rick, as well as our Seasoned Roast Beef, Rib Eye Steak Sandwiches, Pulled Pork and Augratin potatoes. Judy and our Chef, Cole Coplen, are constantly upgrading and perfecting our menu. You can have Our famous Prairie Gold Seasoning at your house!
