If you are on our kick starter page, chances are you are either a foodie or you have already tasted some of our homemade jerky. We have always had a passion for good food, and live by the saying "We don't eat to live, we live to eat!!!"
WHY BEEF JERKY?
We have always loved beef jerky. We would buy it for fishing and long road trips. It's the perfect snack. Growing up we used to enjoy everything from Slim Jim to Pacific Gold and Jack Links. But once we started eating our homemade jerky, we realized that all those other brands just couldn't compare.
BEHIND THE BRAND
BANZAI JERKY! was started by two cousins, Jeff and Lance. Jeff has been doing tax accounting for the last 4 years and Lance has been a designer for the last 10. Though we like our current jobs, we have always wanted to do something with our love of food and beef jerky. 6 years ago Jeff started making beef jerky for family and friends. Every batch would disappear in a matter of days. Over that time Jeff has refined his recipes and we now have 4 amazing flavors.
We have been throwing around the idea of starting our own beef jerky company for a couple years now. Earlier this year we finally made the decision to set up the business and start looking for a manufacturer that could make it for us. We recently found a USDA approved beef jerky company that will use our recipes to make BANZAI JERKY! for us.
WHY THE NAME BANZAI JERKY!?
The translation of "BANZAI" is ten thousand years and/or long life. Nowadays, it is used as an expression of enthusiasm and celebration. We want to celebrate long life, and what's life without great food? We are excited about our jerky and hope you will be shouting BANZAI! after you eat it.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
We have put our own money into getting the business up and running but in order to purchase the first batch of beef jerky and take it to market, we need your help to raise $5,000. Anything above that goal will go towards additional batches of beef jerky and things like new logos, marketing and website. Our main goal is to get our delicious BANZAI JERKY! out to the general public so everyone can enjoy it as much as we do!
