The Savory Butcher Review & Info (Best Zaycon Fresh Alternative)
I’m so excited to announce that a couple of former Zaycon Fresh customers started a new “Community Bulk Meat Buying Co-op”, called The Savory Butcher!
The Savory Butcher
The concept is simple… get a bunch of people together to purchase a product at a lower cost (compared to purchasing it on your own at the grocery store) means you skip the middleman (grocery store) and save a ton of money!
High-quality meat + Lots of people = lower costs
I know a lot of you have been feeling just like I have been… it’s been hard to swallow the prices of quality meat and I wasn’t willing to buy cheap meat. That’s why I’m so excited about The Savory Butcher!!!
6 Savory Butcher Benefits (Savory Butcher vs Zaycon Fresh)
1. Trimmed Chicken!
You’ll receive a 40-pound box of boneless skinless chicken breasts that are ALREADY TRIMMED!! HOW exciting is this!?!?
In fact, I think this will save you even more money because you won’t be paying for all the fat and skin that we would spend an hour trimming off! I’d usually have a couple pounds of trimmed stuff that I’d throw out.
Since you’re getting a full 40 pounds of chicken that is READY TO EAT, you’re saving even more money (not to mention time!)
2. Grass Roots
With Savory Butcher, there are NO investors allowed. Investors are basically what was the huge downfall of Zaycon Fresh.
3. Organic Will Be Offered
Coming Soon! Organic is expensive, but since we’ll be purchasing in bulk, you’ll save a lot of money compared to grocery store prices!
4. High-Quality Meat
Savory Butcher is going back to the original source of high-quality meat that we saw in the early years of Zaycon Fresh (if you’ve been a long time customer, you’ll know that the quality changed over the last 24 months)
5. Easier Payment
Pay for the product a week or two prior to picking up, not MONTHS before!
6. Reservation System
Savory Butcher now has an awesome reservation system! Unlike Zaycon, Savory Butcher customers can reserve their meat 30 days prior to delivery for a deposit of $10 per case!
1 week prior to the delivery date, you’ll be charged the remaining balance. You’ll get an email notification 48 hours before the balance is charged and you can make any changes you’d like to at that time.
How to Get Savory Butcher to Deliver to Your Area
Savory Butcher is currently delivering in Utah, Idaho, Washington, and Oregon. Don’t live in these states? I’ve got good news for you!!
Savory Butcher Needs “Community Leaders!”
Community leaders help spread the word in a specific zip code and build a community of interested families that sign an online petition.
Once the petition has enough online signatures, Savory Butcher will open up the area for pre-reservations like above, except that in this case, there will need to be a certain number of orders met… so the community will fill a truck and see a *virtual truck* filling as the $10 reservation deposits are collected.
The truck will need to be filled by a certain date. If the truck fills by that date, Savory Butcher will come to that area! If not, everyone who deposited will get their money back and they will try that area again a few months later.
Meet the Founders of Savory Butcher
I know there was so much negative stuff floating around the internet about Zaycon Fresh. I have hundreds of comments from many of you hoping that something similar to Zaycon would show up.
I felt the same way… but I didn’t want to buy from people I don’t trust. So let me tell you about the two founders of The Savory Butcher… Cassie Michael and Erle Adams.
I’ve known Cassie for a long time because she’s a “frugal blogger” just like me! She has been blogging over at The Thrifty Couple with her hubby for the last 10 years.
She’s a busy mom with 6 kids, and she works hard to stay on a budget. She’s just like me and you and was so sad when Zaycon Fresh closed… she loved the quality and the prices!
In 2016 she was contracted by Zaycon Fresh to be a liaison between Zaycon and all the bloggers that were promoting Zaycon. She saw a lot of the mistakes the investors made with Zaycon behind the scenes. She tried working with them and saw the investors push the original founders out of the company.
She had been a customer and promoted Zaycon to her audience for 8 years. She knew that Zaycon closing left thousands of people wanting a better way to buy their meat.
Rather than creating a company that was “money focused” (as the corporate investors turned Zaycon in to), she wanted something that was CUSTOMER FOCUSED (as Zaycon originally was back in the early days). So that is why she helped create The Savory Butcher… knowing that success is founded on helping the consumer.
I met Erle Adams in 2016. He was hired by Zaycon to be over the “influencers” (that basically means anyone with a large online following). He worked for Zaycon Fresh for 14 months and was fired by the investors 2 days after Christmas in 2017 (they wanted to cut costs).
Like Cassie, Erle saw the mishaps within the company. Erle knows the heart of the original founders of Zaycon and didn’t like seeing what was happening with the company.
How The Savory Butcher Began
Erle and Cassie stayed in touch after he was fired. Shortly after Zaycon Fresh closed, they got on the phone and decided they wanted to…
- Take on the challenge of helping thousands of people save money on high-quality meat
- Stay true to the mission of helping others; and
- Provide a product for less money.
For the last several months they’ve been building a strong foundation for a community bulk meat buying co-op. The first Savory Butcher event launched in September 2018 in Utah and it when great!
I’m so excited to get my hands on some excellent quality meat for less money than what I could find it in local grocery stores. I’m excited to have my freezer stocked again! AND I’m excited to have some good solid people build something that so many of us want!
