About Us

The Signature Meat Market concept was created by Great Lakes Foods of Menominee, Michigan to allow our retail grocery customers to provide their guests with innovative beef, chicken and poultry products with exciting flavor twists.  The Signature Meat Market takes the work out of creating delicious meat entrees, allowing you to fire up the oven or grill and make gourmet meals in minutes. The Signature Meat Market is the rebirth of the local meat market with a twist.


About Great Lakes Foods Wholesale Grocery

Our Success Depends on Your Success

Great Lakes Foods has been successfully serving independent grocers in Wisconsin and Michigan for over 100 years from our 300,000 square foot warehouse and support center in Menominee, Michigan.

As owner, Tom immediately invited the Great Lakes Leadership team, led by Jerry Van and Gene Mylener, to join him as partial owners in moving the company forward.  Tom's background in logistics and finance has created a new level of energy and enthusiasm to an already successful program.

Now with the captial to invest in the facilites, products, and services to help our retailers grow, Great Lakes Foods is positioned to do great things.
