Henry Fendt and his two sons Theodore and Alois Fendt started Fendt Brothers Meat Market in 1919. It's a quaint little store in Watertown where it still resides today. Tragically after only nine months of being open, Henry passed away. This allowed Fritz, the youngest of the brothers, to join the business at age 13.
The Brothers built a business through hard work, making quality sausages and having a friendly customer attitude. This has allowed Fendt Brothers to survive even through the Great Depression. Theodore's son Ken, and Fritz's son Donald, joined the business in the 1950's and 1960's respectively. Ken unfortunately passed away at a young age. Theodore and Fritz worked 63 and
68 years respectively mastering their sausage making techniques. Donald bought the business in 1983 and has run it ever since. In 1997 Don's son Dale joined the business. Fendt Brothers is now in its fourth generation.
