LUDOWICI — Ludowici Meats had its grand opening on June 6 with about 75 people on hand to join in on the fun.
Owner Loy Evors and Tim Works, who is with the Long County Chamber of Commerce, welcomed everyone and as noon approached hamburgers and hot dogs were cooked to feed all present.
“This is just what we need in Ludowici, now we don’t have to drive 30 to 35 miles anymore to get some good, clean meat,” Ludowici Mayor Myrtice Warren said.
According to Evors, the market will offer specials all of the time, including family specials.
“We also make our own fresh sausage right here. Whether you want it fresh or smoked we’ll have it. We also will be doing deer processing for all of the hunters,” he said.
Besides everyone enjoying a meal, Evors also gave away hats, T-shirts, smoked Boston butts and a quarter-hind of beef, valued at $350.
Louise Walker, Alma Mitchum and Sulla Kuntz won the butts, while June McCullough took home the beef.
“Today we had a great turnout, and we thank all who came out,” county commission Chairman Bobby Walker said. “Everyone needs to know that more businesses are coming to Long County.”
The highlight of the day was a ribbon cutting when members of the chamber, county commission and development authority helped  Evors cut the ribbon.
The store is on Highway 57, next to Long County High School.
