Paul Anderson, Owner and President at Anderson Reserve, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Executives for dedication, achievements, and leadership in butchering.
After an exciting period of time professional racing cars, Mr. Anderson chose to return to the family business and legacy of butchering. In 2009, he felt a calling to return to what his family had done best and spearheaded Anderson Reserve in Sweet, Idaho. With a vision to make their meats available to the general public in both online and retail, Mr. Anderson is proud to sell the finest USDA prime angus beef, lamb, veal and Kobe beef, as well as grass fed angus beef, American buffalo, Berkshire pork and free rage chicken. His grandfather had always dreamed of having a retail store and he is humbled to have made it a reality since 2016, along with a restaurant, wine bar and event center.
Mr. Anderson’s grandfather had commenced his training in butchering in the late 1940s and spearheaded the Anderson Boneless Beef Co. in 1975 with his three sons. Focusing on quantity and fulfilling contracts for suppliers to McDonald’s, the company became one of the largest hot dog manufacturers in the nation. As time went on, they transitioned to higher quality cuts, serving up to 5,000 restaurants and hotels in their most wholesome weeks. Upon the passing of Mr. Anderson’s grandfather in 2003, the family business was sold.
Finding great success in revamping the family legacy, Mr. Anderson has led Anderson Reserve to receive a Food and Excellence Award from the State of Idaho. Likewise, the establishment is a nominee for the 2020 Business of the Year in Idaho. He attributes the business’ success to his hard work, as well as the support of his parents. Mr. Anderson finds the most rewarding part of his business and butchering is seeing customers leave happy every night. With this sentiment, he feels honored that customers choose Anderson Reserve as their establishment of choice to celebrate anniversaries, birthdays and other special life events.
Congruent to his business owning efforts, Mr. Anderson maintains affiliation with the Gem County Fire Department, Boise Metro Chamber of Commerce and Food and Agriculture Department of Boise. In the coming years, he hopes for the continued success of his business, as well as for it to survive through the COVID-19 pandemic. The advice Mr. Anderson can offer to aspiring entrepreneurs of the food industry is to know that it can be hard at times, but at the end of the day, it is very rewarding. It requires 110 percent of your effort, as this is your own passion, it cannot be projected onto your employees, as they have their own dreams.
