The Willis Street shop was Wellington’s most popular butchery and continued leading the trade until it closed in 1987 when the building was demolished.
During 1978, Rod and Scot Preston opened a purpose built specialist meat processing operation in Hopper Street. The Hopper Street plant caters for the trade –retail butchers, hotels, restaurants, cafes, catering organisations, supermarkets and the general public.
In 1985 Rod and Scot Preston opened their Palmerston North factory and shop at 88 Cuba Street, supplying customers throughout the central districts. With the passing of his brother Scot, Rod Preston is now the Managing Director of Preston’s Master Butchers (with locations in central Wellington & Porirua).
Traditional recipes, artisan practises and gentleman-like family values and ethics still form the heart of the Business today.
