Paulina Meat Market: A new-age business with old-world charm

Oct 16, 2010

Paulina Meat Market has been supplying fresh cuts to meat lovers in Chicago since 1949. Its old-world recipes and traditions attract a loyal, multi-generational customer base. In 2007, long-time manager and butcher Bill Begale seized the opportunity to buy the market from its original owners. He did so with a loan from Bank of America. Shortly thereafter, the bank helped Bill secure the funds needed to buy the building that has housed the market since 1984 and invest in business improvements. As the owner, Bill’s careful to preserve the look, feel and selection that keep his customers coming back. And Bank of America is happy to support small business owners like Bill. Because when you are giving, lending and investing in more communities across the country, more opportunities happen.
