Steve George

Owner

With over 35 years of experience in the business, you could say this is in his blood. Steve is a 4th generation butcher, his family starting their first butcher shop/market in 1924! He began working for his father at Windham Prime Butcher when he was 15 years old, learning the business the old fashioned way. Since Prime Butcher Hampstead opened in 2006, Junior has used his knowledge of the business and his vision to transform the butcher shop into the marketplace you see today. Steve says seeing happy and satisfied customers is what keeps him going.


Billy Steeves

Store Manager

Billy started working in commercial kitchens at the age of 16, and his love of food encouraged him to attend Johnson & Wales for culinary arts. After a 13 year career that included everything from dishwasher to Sous Chef, Billy came to Prime Butcher in Hampstead in 2009 and soon became Store Manager. When meeting him, it’s clear to see that he loves interacting with and educating customers and staff alike. “The customers are the reason we are here, but the staff is what makes Prime Butcher. It’s my family.”


Jennifer Heinrich

Store Supervisor

Jen has been an integral part of Prime Butcher since August 2015. She has had a passion for food her whole life, growing up in the kitchens of her mom and grandmothers. Jen has over 25 years of professional food service experience, ranging from busperson to bartender, and event planner to banquet cook. She can be found anywhere and everywhere in the operation, from creating delicious food in our kitchen, to helping manage our busy staff, and sometimes behind the meat counter where she started her time with us. Jen has earned various nicknames here over the years, but “the glue” and “mama bear” should give you some perspective as to how important she is to us.


Michael Healey

Michael has been in the Meat Department with us since November 2016. He helps us keep the meat department running, supervising staff and his “jack of all trades” training comes in handy frequently working on equipment. The big Irishman has a love for food that is clearly evident to everyone he talks with. When he is not here, Michael loves to experiment in his home kitchen with his family, practice yoga, and find ways to be outside with his son, Sean.
