Raised in South Florida, Howard grew up in the restaurant and Hotel business. He landed in Atlanta in 1966. At the time he was in the produce industry. His major client was Burger King!

In 1983, Halpern founded Buckhead Beef with 5 Boucher’s. It grew to become one of the largest privately-owned meat purveyors in the United States. The company gained international recognition when it was selected as the official supplier of meat and seafood products for the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta.

In 1999, Halpern sold Buckhead Beef to Sysco Corp. It had grown to $200 million in annual sales and had about 300 employees.

Halpern stayed on with Sysco for about 5 years, running the East Coast meat division and helping Sysco acquire 11 meat companies.

Halpern retired from Sysco in 2005. But he couldn’t stay away, joining his son in a new business venture: Halpern’s’ Purveyors of Steak and Seafood.

They are revving up the engines for the Atlanta based company, a leading meat and seafood vendor for restaurants and is one of the fastest growing private companies, with many acquisitions, has expanded to over 500 employees and is already surpassing the sales of Buckhead Beef when it sold in 1999, while maintaining and exceeding quality!

Plans are to continue to grow with more Acquisitions or roll-outs in about 20 cities such as New York, Boston, Philadelphia, Chicago, Houston, Seattle, and Las Vegas.
