Stephen’s Meats
In 1942, the son of an Italian immigrant named Stephen Pizzo opened a new meat market on Bird Road in San Jose. Stephen’s Meats would gain local popularity for three generations from its quality and flavorful sausage and pork products.

Today under the ownership of Bassian farms, we still carry on the tradition making Stephen’s famous Italian sausage, polish sausage, hot links, bratwurst and frankfurters from the same recipes dating back to the 1940s.

Locals can still see and remember the iconic “dancing three little pigs” neon sign today on South Montgomery street where the original plant was located near the SAP center.
