Miller Meats was founded by Darrell Miller in 1976 as a meat processing company. The company has prospered over the years, even during recessionary times, and has maintained the same location near downtown Newport News, Virginia for over 25 years. Originally hired by Mr. Miller as a butcher in 1990, Nick Washington purchased the company in 2015 thus continuing the Miller Meats legacy and providing value for the community.
Today, Miller Meats is proud of its diversity as an African American-owned company and continues to operate in a hub-zone certified location. Nick is committed to creating new jobs in and around its hub-zone in Newport News and is well-known in the community for providing employment among individuals that might be otherwise considered unemployable. Nick’s primary focus is providing quality meats at affordable prices, especially for those with low or fixed incomes. Giving back to the community has, and continues to be, very important to the organization. The company is totally committed to community involvement and providing quality meat products that are affordable for every family. In addition, Miller Meats continues to exercise diversity in its purchasing options, and with a broad range of wholesale customers including Sysco, the largest food distributor in the country.
Through its meat distributors and purveyors, Miller Meats delivers affordable quality meat products to federal, state, county, and local institutions and the military. The company fulfills customer’s beef, pork, poultry, and seafood product requirements from Richmond to Chesapeake including Norfolk, Hampton, and Virginia Beach including northeastern North Carolina.
