Kaleen L. Smith-Oldridge, co-owner at BillyBob’s Butcher Shop, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in food preparation.

Mrs. Smith-Oldridge, alongside her husband, has built a successful career in both the culinary and healthcare sectors. Serving as Co-owner of BillyBob’s Butcher Shop since 2017, they have revitalized the local business landscape. Prior to this entrepreneurial venture, Mrs. Smith-Oldridge dedicated six years as an emergency medical technician and 14 years of service at Eastern Idaho Regional Medical Center. Her extensive experience in healthcare underscores her commitment to serving the community.

The journey to entrepreneurship stemmed from a familial legacy, with Mrs. Smith-Oldridge’s father-in-law opening a butcher shop in 1992. Inspired by this tradition, coupled with a desire for a change of scenery, the couple embarked on a new chapter in Elgin, Oregon. Despite initial setbacks in acquiring the desired USDA facility, their determination led them to the revitalization of Little Billy Bob’s Butcher Shop. Over the years, they expanded the business and ultimately acquired Stafford’s, a USDA facility, in 2021.

In the coming years, Mrs. Smith-Oldridge and her husband aim to fully pay off the USDA plant, marking a significant milestone in their entrepreneurial journey. Following this achievement, they plan to retire and transition to a smaller-scale operation, managing the shop independently. Their long-term goal includes further development of the USDA plant to facilitate its eventual sale, allowing them to consolidate their financial standing and secure their retirement plans.

Outside of their professional pursuits, Mrs. Smith-Oldridge enjoys various hobbies. She enjoys arts and crafts, quilting, sewing, crocheting, floral arrangements, and painting. Her dedication to both her career and personal interests exemplifies her multifaceted approach to life.
