Best jerky straight outta Las Vegas. With Flavors like Wasbi Horseradish Prime Rib, Caribbean Jerk, Jojo's is serious about jerky.

WHAT IS JOJO'S JERKY?

Love isn't something that usually comes to mind when you think about beef jerky. However, that is the secret ingredient that goes into every bag of jerky and jar of spice rub that JoJo's Jerky sells. It goes in to how we maintain our kitchen, how we act in the community and how we treat people. 

We start with fresh ingredients, a little imagination, and a taste for quality and ingredients that complement each other. We use USDA grade A beef, and the second most tender cut, top sirloin. We hand trim out all the fat and marble and use all natural fresh ingredients. Anyone who knows jerky knows that fat is not the key, it is the enemy. It makes the jerky chewy, oily, and makes it spoil. Our grass and grain fed beef is tender, moist and meaty. We take pride in our products, and everything we do is to make it a better experience for the customer. Our goal is to keep our quality and standards high. This can only be achieved by keeping our process in house. We want to continue to use US beef and all US ingredients. We want to keep the chemicals out and keep giving our customers the best jerky experience money can buy.

JoJo's mission is to bring a smile to the face of every one of our customers, and a big part of that is community service. From fundraisers for sick children to sending hundreds of bags of jerky to the brave men and women serving in Afghanistan, we believe that the most important part of business is giving back.

WE NEED YOUR HELP!

We have been supported by our local community and have truly been blessed with an amazing team. From our graphic designer, to the sales force, to every guy and girl helping and making sacrifices because they believe in what we are doing, we have a solid foundation to build on. 

JoJo's cares, and now we are asking for you to help us move forward. We have been approached by many local and some national distributors that want to carry our products. This requires a series of USDA inspections and stamp of approval. With your help we can get it! Once achieved, we can grow and share our amazing jerky and goodwill with the rest of the world. Please, help us spread the word and do more great things. Our goal is to become a USDA inspected facility. We've already done everything paperwork wise and USDA/ FSIS has even reserved establishment numbers for us. Only funds are missing to get the required equipment and get ball rolling.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

There are constant challenges in the food business. We have passed the one year mark and are still here, working harder than ever to achieve our goals. It's required a lot of struggle and sacrifice, but the challenges make us stronger, and with each goal we accomplish we get that much closer. We have set up a strong network of people who have been willing to give their advice.

Thank you very much!

    Chairman. We would not only have a jerky named and custom created after you or someone you love, but also create a special bull logo to immortalize you forever. We would also have an original print of your bull framed. We work extremely hard making our product and something like this shows us that you really believe in us. Words really cannot describe what it would mean, but here goes. It has always been our dream to do something we love, putting smiles on people's faces with something we create. This is what we can now do with this business: bring joy to people of all ages. You would be our angel, friend and someone who will never be forgotten for your generosity. We would all love to meet you. Come to Vegas, we'll show you who we are and what we are doing. We will keep you posted with monthly emails on our progress and new accounts and opportunities. Includes all lower tier rewards, your name on the top of our page, and our eternal gratitude.
