The Texas-based Kiolbassa brand now reaches into southern states including the U.S. Territory of Puerto Rico through Costco discount club stores, the company announced recently. Fifty-three Costco stores from Atlanta to Miami, including four stores in Puerto Rico, are carrying the San Antonio-based Kiolbassa Provision Company product line, says Kiolbassa President Michael Kiolbassa.

Kiolbassa brand sausage is made with choice beef and pork, fresh spices, and has no fillers, no MSG, is naturally smoked and is gluten free. It has the lowest sodium content among its national competitors.

“Our premium products continue to attract customers and reinforce our company philosophy of Passion Makes Perfect, as consumers demand quality products for their hard-earned grocery dollars,” explains Kiolbassa, 50, who is the third generation Kiolbassa to lead the family-owned company that has been featured on the Food Network.

Costco stores will carry the company’s signature All Beef premium smoked sausage, considered the sausage-lover’s sausage because of its unique “chop” bite and richly smoked flavor achieved through small batch production using a time-honored recipe that draws on the family’s strong Polish roots. Kiolbassa was founded in 1949.

This year alone, the 25,000-sq.-ft. Texas plant expects to produce more than 12 million lbs. of sausage to be sold in 1,255 stores in 25 states, Puerto Rico and Mexico.

The company’s position as the Texas market leader was built on the Passion Makes Perfect philosophy that reflects the brand’s commitment to authentic recipes, nostalgic traditions and passionate support of team members, customers and the communities they serve.
