Celebrating our 175th Anniversary: Remembering Previous Generations

Although Stanley Lobel never knew his grandfather Nathan, he describes how he slaughtered his own farm-raised steers and delivered cuts of meat to neighbors and residents in the town of Scharnitz, Austria, where Nathan grew up. Stanley’s grandfather was one of six children and along with being a farmer and butcher, he also served as mayor of his small European town in the late 1800s.

Celebrating our 175th Anniversary: Remembering Leon Lobel

“Dad was the best butcher and teacher I ever had,” remembers Evan Lobel of his father Leon who passed away 10 years ago. Working together in the small 600-square-foot space was like a perfectly orchestrated dance—each would anticipate the other’s moves, and to this day Evan feels extremely lucky and grateful to have had so many memorable moments working so closely with his father.

“I always had the passion for the business,” says Stanley Lobel’s youngest son Mark, who started working at Lobel’s in 1986.

Celebrating our 175th Anniversary: Spotlight on David Lobel

Stanley Lobel’s oldest son David calls himself the black sheep in the family as he spent almost seven years practicing law before eventually finding his way back to the family business at their Madison Avenue butcher shop.

“We were all indoctrinated into the business at a young age,” explains David, who describes eagerly jumping out of bed at 3 a.m. on Saturdays so that he could accompany his father to work. “It wasn’t just going to work with Dad—we would go to the meat wholesalers and I got to wear a jacket and hard hat and go into the freezing ice boxes,” he recalls fondly. Back at the shop, eight-year-old David was too young to cut meat; instead he was given a rag and a bottle of Windex and instructed to start cleaning the showcases. By late morning he would go upstairs and take a nap and look forward to what his uncle Leon and father would make them for lunch.

Celebrating our 175th Anniversary: Spotlight on Evan Lobel

It’s no exaggeration to say that Evan Lobel grew up in the business. “After I learned to walk, my father put a knife in my hand and said, ‘Start cutting, son,’” says the fifth-generation butcher, whose father Leon began taking his young son to work at the Madison Avenue shop in the early 1960s.

Evan describes his father, who passed away in 2006, as his Superman. He was very strict and slowly brought Evan into the business by making sure he learned every aspect of the trade from sweeping the floors to working the cash register. This early training gave Evan a well-rounded approach and an understanding that no task was beneath him—he was expected to perform the work as well or better than any other employee.
