Our Heritage

Anyone who has stepped foot inside an authentic delicatessen knows it is about history, tradition, and uncompromising dedication and, well, meat.

Sy Ginsberg grew up with pickle juice and spicy mustard practically coursing through his veins.  He started working in a deli at age fifteen cleaning out pickle barrels and worked his way up to running two very successful delicatessens in Detroit before founding United Meat & Deli in 1982 – now Sy Ginsberg’s Meat & Deli.

Sy wanted his customers to have an authentic deli experience. He wanted to bring every nuance and every flavor to their collective palate. He spent eight months perfecting his corned beef recipe and the rest, as they say, is history.

The brand has gained popularity throughout the Midwest and across North America, but at its core, it strives to create products that honor the tradition of the storefront delicatessen.

Sy Ginsberg’s Meat & Deli is deli done right.

Pledge & Principles


Our customer is our most important asset. We realize that without the customer, we would not exist. Therefore, we will constantly strive to improve our products and service so we may become one of our customer’s most valuable assets.


No price can be put on going the extra mile. Sy Ginsberg’s Meat & Deli may not be the lowest in price, but when it comes to value, Sy Ginsberg’s is the industry leader. Our products are of a higher value because of what we put into them. We always start with the highest quality cuts of meat. Next, we use only the freshest ingredients available, giving our products their consistently superior flavor. Finally, we prepare our products by hand trimming each and every piece in the old-world tradition. At Sy Ginsberg’s Meat & Deli, we believe that individual attention to detail will ensure the quality necessary to bring your customers back time and time again.


Because Sy Ginsberg’s Meat & Deli specializes in whole muscle processed beef products, we excel beyond the large, general processors in the fine art of creating quality Corned Beef, Roast Beef, Pastrami and Prime Rib. Because of our singular and dedicated focus, our products continually exhibit the perfect amount of marbling, a consistent degree of doneness, the right amount of tenderness, and the ideal balance of flavor.

Dedicated Delivery

At Sy Ginsberg’s Meat & Deli, we are committed to giving our 110%, all of the time. We know that quality products are not enough. Crafting the highest value products in the world would be meaningless if they were not readily available for the customer. We pledge to not only deliver what you order, but to be flexible enough to allow for at least 10% more. We believe our customer’s growth translates into our growth. From initial order, to preparation, to final delivery, we pledge to follow through for you.
