Founded in 1917, Omaha Steaks was started by two immigrants who came to the United States in 1898. After passing though Ellis Island, the father and son duo boarded a train and hopped off when the landscape started looking like their Latvian homeland; they got off in Omaha, Nebraska. They began working in the only business they knew—the meat business—and distributed their hand-cut meats to restaurants and grocers.

Meat through the mail actually started out as meat on the rails. Although J.J. Simon and his son, B.A., founded Omaha Steaks in 1917, the pair made the company’s reputation by supplying the Union Pacific Railroad with steaks and ribs for its dining cars. Since then, what started out as a small business in Omaha, Nebraska, has since become a globally renowned supplier of gourmet meats, seafood, desserts and gift baskets.
