History of Béres Pork Shop

humble beginnings...

Hungarian butcher Sandor Béres left his home city of Budapest during the 1956 uprising against the communists, who had taken possession of his fatherís chain of butchers shops. Arriving on these shores as a political refugee, Sandor was determined to establish the chain once more and build a successful business.

Sandor and his wife Eileen started the business together, opening their first shop in 1961. They started out predominantly as butchers specialising in pork and beef. Being astute business people however they soon recognised the potential in selling freshly made pork sandwiches and quickly built up an excellent reputation for quality food and service, a legacy which stays with us to this day. Together they opened and built up three more successful shops.

a family affair...

Sandor and Eileenís son, Richard, joined the business in 1988, allowing for a gradual retirement of the founders to a more consultancy role. Under Richardís leadership, and on the foundation of a solid business, the company embarked on a significant expansion plan.

In the 1990ís the business trebled in size opening 4 more shops in the North of Sheffield. During this period Richardís siblings joined the family business, Helen in 1994 and Catherine in 1997. Larger production premises were needed to supply the growing business and so we moved into a 5000 sq ft factory on Rawson Spring Road. This enabled us to produce and bake our own bread to complete the range of homemade products.

room for expansion...

The early 2000ís saw steady growth as the business moved into new areas of Sheffield, opening shops in Crookes, Woodseats and Chapeltown. A major leap forward into the city centre with a new shop on Pinstone Street in 2015 has allowed us to establish our name and reputation across the city. In 2018 we opened our 12th shop on the south side of Sheffield in Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre, receiving a very warm welcome from the local residents.

the secret of success...

The secret behind our speciality pork sandwiches is in the preparation. Because we are traditional butchers who bone out our own joints and roast it ourselves, we can control the quality of our product all the way through from the beginning of the process to the end result; and it means that every customer gets a sandwich that embodies what Béres is all about. Joints are traditionally cured and cooked in gas fired ovens to give succulent pork and perfect crispy crackling every time. The result - Sheffieldís favourite sandwich for over 50 years!
