Fire at Texas Meat Market in Bryan, TX



Dear friends of Texas Meat Market,

The Texas Meat Market is a family-owned and operated business that had been a dream for our parents since they first came to Bryan, Texas, nearly forty years ago. As longtime members of the Bryan-College Station community, there was no more significant pride for our family than when we opened the doors to Texas Meat Market on July 1, 2020.

We are heartbroken to share that at around 3:30 PM today, August 23, a little over two years after we opened our doors, a fire tore through the Texas Meat Market and damaged everything we have worked so hard to build. While our losses are devastating, we are thankful that no one was hurt or injured. As a family, we are incredibly grateful to the Bryan Fire Department and the Bryan Police Department for their quick help today.

As we plan our next steps and wait for insurance to make their assessments of the damage, Texas Meat Market is effectively shutting down normal operations for the foreseeable future. We are putting this Go-Fund-Me fundraising page with the intent to help our employees whose livelihoods have been affected by this situation and to help cover any damages not covered by insurance. At this time, our primary concerns are for our staff directly affected by this situation. As such, we are also getting back to work - and could use the support of our neighbors as we do so.

Beginning on Friday, August 26:

  • Texas Meat Market will start selling tacos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner in the Texas Meat Market parking lot.
  • Texas Meat Market will be available for event catering.
  • The Mendez family will establish a Go-Fund-Me fundraising page. All proceeds will go towards our employees and damages not covered by insurance.

We thank our neighbors in the Bryan-College Station community so much for your support! We will keep you updated on our website, on social media and on Go Fund Me! Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

- The Mendez Family
