History & Mission

Rath's in Review

The legend started back in 97' and hasn't stopped since. Brothers Ken and Dennis Rath from Long Island, New York purchased what was once know as Hineline's Meats and Provisions on July 1st, 1997 with a vision of taking their extensive knowledge of Butchering and Cooking they had learned from their time at their Father's Butcher Shop and turning their family name into a household commodity in the surrounding area. And they did just that. 


Fast forward 20 years later and the Brothers sell the business to longtime employee of theirs, Matt Johnson, who takes over operations in February 2017.


Matt was hired in June 2007 and worked his way up to Head Butcher in 2009 where he worked along side and learned from both Ken and Dennis what it takes to run and operate smoothly a successful business. He graduated with honors at East Stroudsburg University in 2012 with a B.A Degree in Communications. Since then, he worked full-time at Rath's and gained as much business experience as possible which allowed for him and his business partners Chris Hull and Scott Bermingham to purchase the business in February 2017. Since then, Matt and the group has worked diligently to expand the business into different areas and promote growth of the meat industry. Rath's now provides to local restaurants, attends local events, donates to local causes, provides fair & honest pricing on high quality meats & products, and serves to the best customers that we could ever ask for!
