Formerly a butcher, Ron Thiel (aka Butch) and his wife, Ann purchased the business as Goodrich Dairy in 1991. Joined by his son Adam in 1994 after graduating from UNL, the father/son team have grown and implemented changes including renaming the restaurant “Butch’s Deli” in 2006.

In 2011, Adam’s wife, Stacie spearheaded “Butch’s Catering” and after months of perfecting the recipe, made from scratch pizza was added to the menu later that year. As Butch and Ann have gradually retired; Adam and Stacie continue a strong family business, dedicated to serving the community and their loyal customers.
