OUR STORY

4th Generation Family-Owned Business

Kolb’s Fine Meats & Sausage is a 4th generation, family run meat shop. In 1976, Dave Kolb moved his family from Vancouver to Olds where he purchased the Olds IGA. He and his wife ran the store for 11 years before selling and becoming farmers. Dave had a long history in the meat industry and passed his knowledge on to his son Brent who became the meat manager at the IGA store. In 1984, Brent married Cindy Schneider, his long time meat wrapper and together they ran the meat department servicing Olds and the surrounding communities with their fine cuts. They had an excellent reputation as having the best meat around. Although, Brent eventually turned to other endeavors, he always retained his love of the industry by making sausage and doing specialty cuts for friends and family. When Dave suddenly passed away in 2018, while in the middle of building their acreage retirement home, Brent took a small section of the shop to make and sell his jerky and pepperoni. At that time, Brent and Cindy’s son Dilan decided he would like to learn the meat trade. He enrolled in Olds College and graduated in 2019, with honours, and subsequently joined his dad in the business. During his schooling, Dilan acquired knowledge in many other areas of the meat industry including retail and slaughtering. In April 2021 we expanded to a retail location in Olds that has allowed us to better serve our customers. A full fresh service counter along with showcases of all our products allowing our customers to shop freely. We look forward to helping you with all your meat needs. Don't delay, call us today!!
