Everyone asks me how did we get involved with the Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise. Well, for one thing I was tired of working in a fast paced corporate environment. My job involved extensive overseas travel in an increasingly dangerous world. I wanted to slow down and operate a small business that was fun and profitable. This is the American Dream, but it’s not that easy to find anymore. I happened to be browsing through Entrepreneur magazine and came across an article about the Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise.

This really piqued my interest, since I have been making my own jerky for over 30 years. I wondered how is it possible to run a profitable retail jerky store? I did some investigation and found out that Beef Jerky Outlet stores are springing up all over the country, and that the retail franchise concept is based on a very firm financial model.

When I asked my wife of 45 years what she thought of getting into the jerky business, she looked at me like I had something growing out of my forehead! I decided to visit a couple of Beef Jerky Outlet stores in order to check out the franchise concept in operation. After a visit to one of the BJO manufacturing plants, I made the decision to commit to a franchise. Some of our friends and relatives were a little skeptical, but we decided to take the plunge.

Now we can fast forward to the present: our Beef Jerky Outlet store offers the best beef, turkey and wild game jerky on the market. We offer a huge variety of snack foods; including hot sauces, jams & jellies, rubs & spices, popcorn, cheese curds and more. Now you can have jerky the way you want it in your favorite flavors. After all, we have over 200 sizes and varieties of jerky available for your pleasure. The best part is that you can come into the store and sample any variety and any flavor for free before you buy!
