Our Story

For as long as I can remember, I've been into cars my entire life. I have fond memories as a kid playing with hot wheels, watching Pixar's "Cars", and sitting on my dad's lap holding the steering wheel while he drives. Cars have been an obsession and a lifestyle for me since I could breathe. However, it wasn't until I grew up and started attending college that the idea of Open Road Jerky came to life. By that point in my life, I was living an active and healthy lifestyle, and I desperately craved a protein-filled snack in my diet. I turned to beef jerky for that snack, but there was one issue: I was sick and tired of all the traditional jerky you buy in stores. So, I did what any normal person does, and started making my own beef jerky. I played around with different marinades that were low in sugar, used only natural ingredients, and tasted absolutely phenomenal. Fast forward a few months later, and a lightbulb went off in my head. What if I combined these two things? Cars and beef jerky are like a match made in heaven. Whether on a road trip and you are craving a healthy snack, or during long sessions of repairing your car, beef jerky is a go-to snack for all gearheads alike! And that is when Open Road Jerky was born.

I made it my mission from that day forward to provide the car community with the best snack on earth, because Open Road Jerky isn't just about jerky; it's about fueling your passion for cars one delicious bite at a time.

Our Mission

At Open Road Jerky, we're more than just a jerky company. We're driven by our passion for anything with tires and an engine (preferably a loud exhaust too). Our journey began with a simple idea: To create the perfect snack for those who love automotive machines, crave a burst of protein for late-night garage wrenching, and appreciate delicious, handcrafted jerky.
