SMALL BUSINESS MATTERS
Civic
servant
Ryan's Grocery & Processing is committed to
its tradition as a valued community asset
BY STEVE KRUT | meatpoult r y@sosland.com
W
hen a meat processing plant is
located in a small town where
the livestock population vastly
outnumbers the citizenry, it might seem that
company has cornered the local market. Yet
for Ed Ryan, the 64-year-old owner of Ryan's
Grocery & Processing, there's never been a
time to rest on his laurels.
Jordan, Mont., had a small meat market

when Ed's parents, Jim and Jessie Ryan,
bought it and reopened the business as Ryan
Grocery in 1958. There were at least three
expansions including a new
building across the street from
the original store.
After his father passed away
in early 2021, Ed took over and
continued to run that original
business and a 7,000-square-foot
108 MEAT+POULTRY | 08.21 | www.meatpoultry.com
custom processing plant located about a mile
away and continued to operate it as the family
had always done - with heart.
" We never felt that being the only game in
town gave us any license except to serve our
community, " Ed reflected. " We always had it in
our heart that we had to treat people right and
give them the best products and service that
we could. "
Putting this into perspective: Jordan has
a population of about 250 and is the only
municipality in Garfield County, which has a
total population of about 1,200. There is an
estimated beef herd of 87,000, about 17,500
sheep and lambs and a big game density that
most hunters would only dream about.
So how could a county of 1,200 residents
get its own municipal swimming pool and what
does that have to do with the Ryan's business?
