Tom Donelan, Sr., and the Donelan family started Midstate
Meat Co. in Springfield, Illinois in 1977. After several years of working to
establish Midstate Meat as a premier choice for meat and poultry, Tom and Regina
purchased Ciota & Foster Meats Co. Midstate Meat Co./Ciota & Foster became a
valuable entity in the Springfield marketplace, serving not only local residents
but also businesses in Central Illinois.
It was clear early on that Midstate Meat would be a business strongly rooted in
family. Tom and Regina's son Paul began helping with the business from an early
age. Paul Donelan today follows in his father's footsteps after years of
meat-cutting and hands-on experience. (You cannot mention Midstate Meat Co. in
Springfield without customers complimenting Paul on his friendly demeanor and
lively conversation!) Tom and Regina's grandson, Steve Donelan, began work in
the business after graduating from Illinois State University and helps Paul to
continue the Donelan family legacy.
Residents of Springfield and the surrounding areas should plan to make Midstate
Meat part of their family's grocery routine. The Donelan family's hard work,
belief in good customer service, and loyalty to the local community, make
Midstate Meat a business to support.
