Free Idea for Ted Turner

Have you had a chance to dine on bison at Ted’s Montana Grill? I was in Omaha earlier this month, where I had the Kansas City Strip prepared medium. What an outstanding dish.
I liked the bison steak so much, in fact, I want to buy some of Ted’s National Bison Association-certified meats for preparation at home. And I’d like to send some bison steaks to friends and clients.
Here’s the free idea: An Omaha Steaks-like mail order business for bison (and grass fed beef, for that matter).
Presently, there are small operators that market bison and grass fed beef online and through the mail. What I’m suggesting here is taking this business to the next level by backing it with Ted’s branding and operational know-how.

  1. Karen Waller says:

    Too bad that both the beef and bison sold in Ted’s Montana Grill restaurants is corn fed and grows up in feedlots. Right on the menu, it’s listed that the beef is Harris ranch premium beef and the bison is Great Range brand bison. Google these companies. The home page of each proclaims fine corn fed meat. Nasty!

  2. Thanks Karen. I see the word “feedlot” on the Harris Ranch page, but not on Great Range page. In fact, Great Range calls the bison “wild animals.” I’m not saying they are wild or that bison is free of the feedlot. I’m saying you raise interesting challenges and ‘dl like to know more.
