Reservation made and confirmed! Can't wait to see the new place.Hi everyone - thanks for the interest.
First of all - we 0/10 do not recommend trying to build out a new location during a pandemic. We know from past experience that the permitting process is full of delays - but the shut down with the pandemic really amplified this experience.
Anyhow, we received occupancy last week. We will be open for processing starting this coming Sunday April 17th. We are still waiting for the hood to be signed off by the fire marshall before we can fire up the smoker and restock the retail side with our smoked cheese, smoked fish, and tuna jerky. We do have fully stocked shelves with the FP Gourmet rubs and seasoning .. and we do have a short release of a new Fisherman's Processing Old Town t-shirt to celebrate the new location (in addition to the original.)
We've been covering the entire construction process on our instagram (@fishermans_processing) so you can check there to see videos and photos of the new location.
We're excited to move to a location that offers better retail opportunities, less traffic from liberty station, and a bigger processing room - we outgrew the old location and have been looking to relocate to something bigger and better for several years. I guess we built the first location during a recession - and now the second location during a pandemic, so that's a good sign, right? lol
Oh - edited to add: If you need to make reservations, you can now text us at 619-255-3128; call us there; or email [email protected]
Thanks - I can't confirm myself since I don't work there 'officially', just lots of behind the scenes support for Sean ... and of course, cooking and developing new rubs If you don't get a return confirmation, please check back in.Kristen
Just text Sean 8 reservations for Vagabond/ Phenix 3day and 2 reservations for Vagabond/ Phenix 7day
That's a good question Since I don't 'work' there, I'm going to refer you to the front office for a definitive answer. You can text or call at 619-255-3128.I have a couple of shipping coolers that I will be sending before my Oct 10 day trip. Is your policy still the same as far as storing these until my trip?
Actually ..yes! They just finished their load and bag of the tuna jerky today. We are now stocked on the retail side with our Hickory Smoked Fish (Tuna and Wahoo): Tuna Jerky (Spicy, Pepper, or Teriyaki); and the Applewood Smoked Cheeses (Sharp Cheddar; Gouda; Pepper Jack and Parmesan).Kristen, is the store open yet for walk in purchases of rubs, spices, etc.
Od see processing is happening, but have been waiting for the storefront.
Please let us know.
