Mike is CEO and founder of ButcherBox, the first delivery service dedicated to providing 100 percent natural, grass-fed beef, organic chicken and heritage pork to consumers.
The idea of ButcherBox came to Salguero when his wife was pregnant with their first child and they wanted to eat the healthiest meat possible, but had trouble finding 100 percent grass-fed beef. ButcherBox was launched in September 2015 and today, delivers natural, organic meats directly to consumers’ doors nationwide through a simple monthly subscription service.
All ButcherBox products are humanely raised and free of antibiotics, hormones, and GMOs. The mission of the company is to make natural, organic meats available to everyone. Since taking a graduate class titled “Buying a Small Business” at Babson College in 2009, Salguero was hooked by the entrepreneurial spirit. Prior to founding ButcherBox, Michael was the co-founder and CEO of Customer Made, an online global marketplace for customer services, from 2009 – 2015. Mike started the business in his apartment and grew it to a company with $27 million in funding from top-tier VCs including Google Ventures and over 40 employees. Michael is a CrossFit enthusiast and an avid lover of the outdoors. He received a masters of business administration in entrepreneurship from Babson College in Wellesley, MA and a bachelor of science in international relations from Boston University.
Mike resides in Cambridge, MA with his wife and three young daughters.
Grass-fed beef has less fat, more antioxidants, better vitamin content, and 3X the conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) of grain-fed beef – which research shows might protect against heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. It’s also a whole lot better for the cattle because they enjoy free range on pasture rather than sitting in crowded feedlots. ButcherBox ships its customers (which we are) a box of 100% grass-fed beef delivered each month. The meat is flash frozen and they curate which cuts you receive. They also offer mixed boxes including organic chicken and /or Heritage bred pork. You can even customize your box with add-ons like burgers, bacon, and ribeye. Their product is top notch and free of all antibiotics, hormones, and GMO’s. Each box is $129 and comes with 6 – 10 lbs worth of meat, which is enough for 15 – 20 individual sized meals (at a 6 – 8oz portion size). The price works out to about $7/meal and shipping is free. You can also setup your delivery frequency to only receive a box every two or three months. ButcherBox has been featured by Today.com, Food 52, Inc. Magazine, and Food & Wine Magazine.
