History of John Boos & Co
In 1887, Conrad Boss, a blacksmith in Effingham, Illinois, used a sycamore tree placed on three legs while striking horseshoes. Three years later, a local butcher realized that a wooden Boos mold could be used to slice meat, and he had one custom made. The news spread to surrounding small towns and cities, and by 1911, John Boos & Co was shipping custom butcher blocks from coast to coast. Throughout the 1920s, 1930s, and 1940s, John Boos expanded its range of production and products to include tables and worktops, most of which went into the war effort during World War II. By the 1940s, John Boos had earned its reputation for quality and craftsmanship, and John Boos butcher blocks were found in every restaurant, food store, and butcher shop in America. Today, the traditional artisan work ethic is still alive and well at John Boos, as all butchery boards and blocks are still proudly made in Effingham, Illinois. Often imitated, John Boos slabs and blocks are a favorite of professional chefs and can be found in restaurants and commercial venues all over the world.
