This is just an incredible story. I first had Kingmade Jerky about 6 years ago while working with one of my PGA Tour players during a practice round. It was literally the best I had ever tasted, and it came from a Ziploc bag out of one of the other players' golf bags. Fast forward to 2020 and Kingmade Jerky is the "Official Meat Snack of the PGA Tour".
I sat down with founder Jeff King to talk about the origin of Kingmade Jerky, how it took off, the challenges of starting a business (especially when it was completely unexpected), and how it is one of the fastest-growing meat snacks in the U.S.
