Bill the Butcher is a rapidly growing Pacific Northwest chain of upscale butcher shops. On the Bill the Butcher website, Bill—William Von Schneidau, the founder along with marketing consultant J'Amy Owens—originally said, "If you've met me in the store you know I'm passionate about organic grass fed beef... but don't just take my word for it." However, the business initially would not divulge its purportedly local/organic meat suppliers, nor label its meats by source; since this article in The Stranger appeared, Bill the Butcher has become more transparent in its labeling and suppliers. More recently, both Von Schneidau and the C.O.O. have parted ways with the company, and both are suing for breach of contract and more. In summer 2012, the Madison Valley and Bellevue branches closed.
