Los Angeles-Based Wagyu Specialists La Carniceria Meat Market To Open San Diego Locations

December 9, 2022

Los Angeles-based premium butcher shop chain La Carniceria Meat Market has plans to open as many as four locations around San Diego County. 

Founded in the South Gate City area of Los Angeles in 2017 by Luis Ruiz, La Carniceria Meat Market is high-end meat store and one of the only facilities in the Los Angeles area to be part of the Japanese Kobe Beef Association. Ruiz moved to Los Angeles at age 21 and picked up a job at a local butcher shop in South Gate. Over the course of the next few years, Ruiz was able to buyout the very shop that gave him his start and eventually shifted the company's vision to that of his own. La Carniceria Meat Market now has five locations across Los Angeles and Orange County and a new franchise model that aims to greatly increase growth. 

La Carniceria Meat Market has plans to open up to four branches in San Diego, with the first to open in 2023 within South Bay Marketplace in Chula Vista. At La Carniceria, expect a glass butcher case filled with prime cuts of beef, including Snake River Farms American Wagyu, A5 Japanese Wagyu, Australian Wagyu, and USDA Prime, as well as seasonings and other grocery items. 

La Carniceria Meat Market is expected to open its first area location as early as March 2023 at 67 North Broadway, Suite A, in San Diego's South County city of Chula Vista. For more information, visit lacarniceriameatmarket.com.
