Check out 7 Mile Member, Eric Schwandt and his delicious specialty butcher shop Carnivore.


Tell us the name of your business, what you do and why do you love it so much? Carnivore Premium Meats.  I love that Carnivore brings together a community of people that truly enjoy top quality food.  It makes me happy when I see the smile of satisfaction on a customers face when they come back to the shop to tell us about the steak dinner they had the night before!  


Where did you get the idea for a specialty butcher shop?  Katie and I have always thought the island needed this.  But truthfully the Carnivore concept started with my business partners.  But when my wife and I were approached with the idea we jumped at the opportunity.


How long has Carnivore been open?  Carnivore opened only 2 short months ago.  Feb 6 2020.


What are you best known for?  We provide the island with the highest quality meat available.  We source from an exclusive supplier.  And the sandwiches are pretty good too!!  Gotta try the Reuben.


How many people do you employ? 2 Canadians, 4 Caymanians


What’s the greatest thing about owning a business in Cayman?  Being able to provide friends and family with something we truly believe in.  We love what we do and are so happy to share it with the community.  Cayman is chalk full of great people.  It is so much fun to be a part of it all.


How can local residents support you and your staff during this time? Have a BBQ for breakfast, lunch, and dinner!


Why is fitness important to you as a business owner? Stress can be a factor.  Getting in a few work outs is such a relief and great way to take a break from the daily grind.  Really helps clear the mind.  

In 50 years what do you hop you and your business are remembered for? 50 years??  Besides living that long lets hope for multiple Carnivore locations!!!


How did your dog get his name and does he get any treats from Carnivore?  Ha!  The Dude was named directly from the film The Big Lebowski.  And believe me, The Dude enjoys licking plenty of juicy cutting boards, and gulping down Prime beef trimmings. 


What’s the easiest way for people to make an order?  Call: +1-345-640-MEAT (6328) or E-Mail [email protected] We are open for take away!!  Come visit us, talk to us about meat, and leave with bag full of greatness.
