Grand Banks Specialty Foods​

a lifetime passion

Over 20 years ago, Grand Banks Specialty Foods began with a specialized focus on perfecting the curing and smoking of Atlantic salmon, to deliver the best Smoked Atlantic Salmon to its customers. From this one exceptional product, the company’s epicurean founder, Bill Froehlich, turned his gaze upon the world of fresh and smoked sausage.  Utilizing the years of knowledge and experience he earned as a chef, he formulated proprietary recipes for gourmet fresh and smoked sausages still used to this day.  The brand grew organically as a result of the consistency and unparalleled quality present in Grand Banks Specialty Foods product line.  The company expanded to include the manufacture of charcuterie items as well as Portuguese Specialty meat items.  Grand Banks’ dedication to excellence was illustrated yet again in 2007 when Bill worked side by side with the former owner of Baltasar & Sons Portuguese Sausage Company to ensure conservation of the authentic Portuguese recipes for his products.  Grand Banks Specialty Foods strives each day to create new and exciting gourmet products while upholding the quality that has been the cornerstone for our success.

At Grand Banks Specialty Foods, a family run gourmet food producer, using all natural & fresh ingredients is only a part of our recipe to ensure our poultry, meat and fish products are of the highest quality. Each product is handcrafted with pride. Our robust product line includes preservative & nitrate free fresh chicken sausage, fresh sausage, smoked sausage, smoked chicken & specialty meats, corned beef & pastrami, cold smoked fish and Portuguese meat items.  We invite you to try our products and taste the difference.​

"I have used a number of your sausage products, like the Mushroom, Andouille and Chorizo  with my Monthly Wine Dinners as a first plate, charcuterie or, in main course such as Paella... never been disappointed, they are always great​" 

-Dave McCoart, Chef/Owner of Sage American Grill & Oyster Bar

"Doing business with Billy Froehlich on and off for the past 20 years has been an enlightening experience. These days so many big box stores putting out their own brand of churcuterie. It is wonderful to find something unique and delicious that is still made with passion and pride. I will continue to further my repertoire and proudly serve Froehlich's products whenever possible. If only he would make a damn HOT DOG"
