The Original Sausageologists
Some of the best businesses start from the ground up. Or in Bobak's case, the basement up!
This Chicago based company prides itself on Sausageology:
Sausageology™ [Sau-seg-olo-gee]-noun 1The intense study of sausage and sausage making. 2An area of study perfected by the Bobak Sausage Company in Chicago Illinois. 3The action of using only Bobak Sausage products in your favorite recipe or on your backyard grill. 4Something other meat companies can only dream about.
Boabk's is a USDA meat processor of old world sausages and deli meats that got its start in the 1960s when sausage was being made by family in the basement and smoked in the garage! They call these folks the original Sausageologists! It wasn't until the fire department showed up thinking there was a fire that the thought of opening a store came to mind.
Their first storefront opened in 1967, and still exists today, but Bobak's products can also be found in grocers and restaurants nationwide.
Their Sausageologists work hard in a state-of-the-art USDA plant to hand craft the best tasting gourmet Polish and contemporary flavors of sausages and deli meats you've ever tasted. All of their sausages and deli meats start out with fresh, never frozen, lean cuts of meat.

They were also voted one of "Chicago's Best" by Saveur Magazine.
