The principles set forth by Elmer Hensler in 1965 are the same ones we honor in every batch of craft-sausage today.
They are simple and real and they are the framework around which the Queen City Sausage brand is built:
- For our customers, our families, and ourselves, Queen City Sausage creates highest-quality German sausages.
- Queen City Sausage customers deserve and will receive the very best service possible.
- Customers are entitled to and will always be offered Queen City Sausage at a fair and honest price.
