Since approximately 2001, the space now known as R44 has held a place in the community which has been recognized for serving subs, daily specials, house-made sausages and a butcher counter with fresh meats.  

Restoration Forty-Four, a group comprised of four local couples, began renovation and investment in downtown Mantua with opening Restoration Forty-Four Coffee Co. in 2019.  When the need arose for new ownership of the meat shop the R44 team added to their ventures.  Not only did they take on a completely new business they assumed completion of the building’s renovation.

With the help of a local Mantua contractor who appreciated the historical features that were often found in the older buildings in the village, the team uncovered a beautiful space.  In addition, learning the trade of meats, deli and food items was a completely new process.  Originally named R44 Butcher and Baker, opened it’s doors in January of 2021. 

In 2024 the R44 team realized some niche things that the community continually wanted during their visits to the shop.  That’s when a re-branding to R44 Meats, Deli and BBQ was introduced.  The R44 shop is now known for subs, sandwiches and salads made to order, daily lunch specials, catering and BBQ, house-made sausages and a butcher counter with fresh cut meats.
