About Title
SmallDad___brothers

The Hanzlian Family has lived in Buffalo for over 100 years. George Hanzlian worked with his two brothers John and Andrew in a once famous Cheektowaga Meat Market. This is where he learned how to make sausage, and even after retiring he continued to make sausage for family and friends.

In the year 1999 two of his sons, Dave (who worked as a butcher for 25 years) and George (who managed a couple of area restaurants), started their own company. They had the idea to make fresh homemade sausage (like their Father and Uncles did) and take it out to area markets for people to sample and buy. In 2002 with increased sales and market expansion a third brother, Tom, was brought in to help in the family business.

They started with their company making fresh Italian and Polish sausages made from pork or chicken. Soon after they began to make a Pork Breakfast sausage and a Chicken Breakfast sausage. Up to 2003 the brothers were only making fresh sausage in a rope style package, but with the business growing they decided to expand their product line. So in 2003 they began to making frozen sausage patties which initially started with Italian and Breakfast sausage. Years have passed since they began the company, and now they make over 15 different kinds of sausages and 13 kinds of patties!

FAQ Title

Question: What do kind of meat do you use for your sausage?

Answer: For our Pork sausages we use pork shoulder butts and for our Chicken sausages we use boneless skinless chicken thighs.

Answer: There are only three kinds of sausage we make with dairy products which are Royal, Stuffed Hot Pepper, and Pizza sausage. All of which have cheese.

Question: Is there gluten in any of your sausages? 

Answer: There is gluten in two kinds of our sausages which are Stuffed Hot Pepper and General Tso sausage. Both contain small amounts of bread crumbs.

Answer: No do not boil any of the sausages you get from us. With our sausages we only use fresh meat, spices, and water. The boiling process will take away from all of those great flavors, and you will lose them in the water.
