Chad and Courtney Lottman became first-generation processors when they bought the only grocery store in Chad's hometown of Diller
A slaughter floor was added and the back of the store was utilized to become a custom exempt plant.
C & C Processing doubled its size and became a USDA inspected plant
The store was remodeled to include more space for specialty meats, as well as to accommodate a booming deer processing business.
They expanded again, adding a processing area and a sausage-making area with a smokehouse.
After continued growth, Landmark Snacks was built in nearby Beatrice to allow the expansion of their co-packing business
While they built their business with custom processing and deer processing, co-packing for other customers is now the primary focus.
