Kennedy's Meat Company

Overview overview

Born in 1972, the original Kennedy’s Market was opened by Jesus Soto in the small town of Heber, CA. Mr. Soto wished to provide the residents of the Imperial Valley with a convenient location to purchase groceries, household goods and gasoline. What began as a small convenience store soon became the focal point of anyone who made their way through the Imperial Valley. Jesus’ “convenience store carne” grew in popularity and in no time, people were flocking to Heber to get their hands on Mr. Soto’s creation. Our family continues to take great pride in providing only the highest quality meats and table fare to our customers. Today,  Kennedy’s lives on through the family, primarily Jesus’ grandson, Mark Soto Mendoza, who owns the Escondido location. Here is where you can still purchase the same product that Jesus Soto created nearly 50 years ago!
