Wisconsin Meat & Cheese

About us

Welcome to Wisconsin Meat & Cheese!

Our names are Casey & Taylor, and we are the proud owners of Wisconsin Meat & Cheese in Charleston, SC.

What brought us to Charleston is the beautiful weather and an impulse decision to move out of our home state, Wisconsin. Taylor attended law school while I worked from home for the first three years.

We both grew up in the Green Bay area with an overabundance of cheese curds and bratwursts. We never knew how much we missed the food until we were over 1,000 miles away.

In Wisconsin, I used to eat summer sausage and cheese whips as my "night time" snack. My personal favorites were the endless curds by the handful and brats any time the sun was shining to grill out. Being cut off cold turkey after moving to the south had me in shambles, and I know I wasn't the only one.

Welcome to the beginning...

Bringing Wisconsin to the South means we have created a cozy style interior with over 200 different cheeses, over 50 kinds of meats, Racine Kringle, some of those things that just “hit home” and the perfect assortments for charcuterie board necessities, including jams, crackers, mustards, pickles, olives, spreads, "snacky" foods, and sweets.

We start off greeting our customers with a "Sample of the Day," which involves a different cheese thoughtfully chosen every day so our customers have the chance to try something they have likely never tried before.

Next, we keep our cheeses in small cuts and vacuum-sealed packages. This way, the cheese stays the freshest the longest, and it provides you with the opportunity to try multiple cheeses without having to buy a pound of each cheese you want to try. Even better, our prices can compete with huge grocery stores even in being a "specialty shop."

Most importantly, we do our best to go above and beyond for every customer by helping them meet their wants and needs with any products we have in the store. We want to make it an enjoyable experience for them in getting a taste of our home state.

We have recently expanded our business into making gourmet sandwiches and charcuterie boards. This blew the top off of the business. In 2024, we were nominated in 4 “Best of Charleston” categories for having “Best Gourmet Sandwiches in Charleston,” “Best Gourmet Grocery Store in Charleston,” “Best Gift Shop in Charleston,” and “Best Charcuterie in Charleston.” Not only that, but we started carrying wine hand-selected to pair with our cheeses by our sommelier.

We also carry beer that pairs well with a variety of our meats. With having prepared food now, we have created a quaint dining experience both indoor and outdoor. Since our food has become such a hit, we have just expanded more of our seating and plan to add more in the near future! In April 2024, we launched our happy hour for a different deal every day of the week!

We also host wine tastings about every other week and have a variety of other events where we team up with other small businesses. By mid-2024, we plan to provide catering, and by late-2024, we plan to launch online shipping!

We are beyond grateful for how welcoming the Charleston and James Island community has been to us. We want Wisconsin Meat & Cheese to be a fun experience for anyone and everyone.
