George & Marie Frese
David & Alise Frese
Back in 1969, Bill and Joann Fritz wanted to start a meat market and needed a partner. They knew a young couple, George and Marie Frese, who owned an egg farm and wanted to sell.
In 1970 the Freses sold the egg farm, went into business with the Fritz’s, and Quality Meat Market was born.
Business at Quality Meat Market grew and each year they expanded their store to the size it is today. Quality Meats has been in the same location since its beginning in 1970.
In 1974, 4 years after Quality Meats was founded Bill and Joann Fritz decided to retire due to Bill’s health problems. Bill and Joann sold their half of the store to George and Marie Frese.
George and Marie Frese have two kids, David and Debbie. Debbie got married and moved out of the area. David stayed at Quality Meats and followed in his father’s footsteps. In 1994, David became partner with his parents at Quality Meats.
Ten years later in 2004, George and Marie Frese decided to retire and gave the store to David.
George Frese (pop) passed away February 2011.
Marie Frese still misses him dearly,but is happy spending time with the rest of her family.
