Building a Bone-In Business – Frisco STYLE Magazine
By Stephen Hunt -September 30, 2020
Food service has been John Sayklay’s business for the past three decades plus. Since 2015, his company, JR & Sons Food Distribution, has been known around the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex for supplying restaurants with high-quality ingredients like beef, chicken and seafood. Before that, Sayklay performed similar work in his hometown of El Paso.
Even before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Mr. Sayklay, a Frisco resident, contemplated offering something different. So, just this past April, he launched the Bone-In Butcher Shop, a business where customers receive artisanal prime cuts delivered straight to their doorsteps.

I cover the the best in cocktails and dining.
A hearty steakhouse dinner is the perfect way to spend Father’s Day. This year, that meal is going to look a little bit different.
While many restaurants remain closed and social distancing is still an important concern, a virtual dinner date with dad may be the most viable option. Shipping all the components of a perfect steakhouse dinner might be the perfect way to mark the occasion.
Recently, Omaha Steaks conducted a survey in which they asked people what they thought the ideal Father’s Day gift may be. In that survey, 71% answered steak is the perfect gift. If meat is the answer, there’s lots of great ways to enjoy it, without leaving the house.
This year may look different from other years, but it can still be special. It can also still mean a delicious dinner!

As the coronavirus pandemic has forced restaurant shutdowns across Dallas, it has also caused many to cook at home more even as restaurants are open at 50 and soon 75 percent come this Friday. Luckily, local Dallas butchers have adapted to various changes—shocks in the meat supply chain, for one—and kept offering as many types of meat as possible. Even though they cannot always guarantee certain meats will be in stock, these shops continue offering a wide selection with curbside, delivery, and other pickup options. For an extra-special Father’s Day, order grill boxes now.
They remain open seven days a week, offering curbside pickup, drive-through, and delivery options. They source from family farms, which allows them to continue offering fresh meats. Call to order burgers, hot dogs, brats, or one of their famous cheesesteak sandwiches. 20 S Harwood St, 214-655-6328; Downtown

If you’d rather smoke it yourself, keep scrolling for a listing of meat suppliers that will deliver raw meat (a.k.a. future barbecue) to your door. Read More:

Just Found is an occasional series featuring unique people and places in Dallas.
If you have visited your local supermarket meat counter recently, the first thought that comes to mind is the advertising theme line introduced in 1984 by Wendy’s spokesperson Clara Peller and later incorporated into a debate point by Democratic presidential candidate Walter Mondale during the 1984 primaries.
