Even in today's tough business climate, a long-time West Tennessee business has stood firm for 100 years.

Trolinger's Old Fashioned Butcher Shoppe in Paris, Tennessee turns 100 years old this weekend. It's a combination grocery store, restaurant, and community gathering spot.

The custom cut butcher shop features good old fashioned Tennessee pork barbeque. Owner Michael Trolinger said the store's longevity comes down to service, a family atmosphere, and just really good food. 

"We've always strived on quality of meat. If I won't eat it, then I wouldn't put it over the counter. That's just the way my father and my grandfather taught me. He said if you won't eat it, don't sell it," said Trolinger.

Trolinger's had several restaurants over the years throughout West Tennessee. Owners said they're also looking at expanding into other parts of the state.
