Butchery has long been one of society's most fundamental culinary crafts. The constant demand for butchers made these greasy men, who could be found in every small town and most villages, among the wealthiest craftsmen. Most of them also traded in livestock, which further boosted their income.

Industrial centres, where only a few people worked in agriculture, became a paradise for butchers. Therefore, butchers in Slovakia were concentrated in mining towns.
