The Po Boyz Sausage House has re-opened and is now serving unique styles of gourmet cooked sausages.

Executive chef and owner Theresa Omoth has taken over the sausage house and is serving a unique menu of different sausages, cheeses, homemade chili and a specialty soup of the day.

The Po Boyz Sausage House is the only one in Central Alberta, but Omoth hopes to open up more locations in Red Deer and Blackfalds.

Omoth has been a chef for three years, and being a young entrepreneur, she has chosen to take on the business to feed her passion for preparing gourmet food and giving the community something different to try.

“I see it as a good opportunity,” Omoth said. “Running a home business is fun, but I need something else.”

This is not the first business for Omoth, as she ran a gourmet food truck last year and has a home business creating personal meal plans for people. She also produces her own home cook shows.

The sausage house was opened last year by the previous owners, but now that Omoth has taking ownership of it, she has the challenge of running the business, which she said she enjoys.

“I enjoy the people that live here, the feedback that I get from all of my food and my creations, and I want to keep working with that.”

With this business, she has been able to give three young people jobs, which was another goal of hers.

She also wants to give customers the opportunity to try something different.

“I want people to be able to admire it,” she said. “It’s a fun local business, and being a young entrepreneur, I would like people to come in and see for themselves what it is, rather than just judging it by the sign.”

The business, located in Chateau Plaza just off Lakeshore Drive, has created an excellent opportunity for her to live out her creative side with preparing gourmet meals.

“It’s something that is very easy to be creative with,” Omoth said. “The specialties are done with the sausages here, and it’s not just your average hot dog — it is gourmet.”

Omoth takes her customers’ health into consideration by offering some gluten-free food and steaming her sausages and then keeping them hot and fresh on a heat roller. This way, there are no added fats.

Omoth presents her food in such a way of where it grabs her customers’ attention and makes their mouths water.

The ‘Skinny Pig,’ she said, is one of the best sellers on the menu.

“There are a lot of men who love it,” Omoth said. “Initially I thought it would be more directed towards women or healthier eaters, but there are a lot of men who really enjoy it.”

She said she’s surprised that some of the items have gained popularity, as she suspected the chili cheese would be the ultimate favourite.

“It’s nice to see people stepping out of the box.”

She added she wants to bring in a panini machine and a donair machine for serving different meals in the winter.

“It’s weird, but I want to give people a place to eat donairs in the winter.”
