About Wayne’s Jerky

Is this your business?

    Welcome to Wayne’s Jerky

    Everyone can get in a rut. We watch the same shows, listen to the same radio stations, eat the same meals, and buy the same vehicles. Sometimes this is good. I don’t mind fishing in the same spot if the fish are biting. We like what we like. Our habits make us happy.

    But sometimes we get stuck going through the motions and running with the herd. Even our snacking can get in a rut. We pick up the same thing from the same big company because it’s what we know and what we’ve always eaten.

    But not all snacks are created equal. Take my jerky for example. It’s not mass produced in some factory and then shipped to a warehouse where it sits until a distributor picks it up and brings it to another shelf so it can sit some more. That’s a lot of sitting and waiting around.

    Wouldn’t it be cool if your favorite snack was made on demand? It can be, if you are ready to break away from the herd!

    Wayne’s Story

    For over 25 years, I worked at a local paper mill. When I retired, I spent most of my time fishing. I also began making beef jerky for friends and family using a few dehydrators and my own recipes. Soon, I was getting calls from complete strangers wanting my jerky. So I went back to work. My friend Jim and I designed and built both a regular and stainless steel dehydrator. I found beef, spice and packaging suppliers, and my brother Jimmy helped me make and package the jerky. My daughter-in-law designed a logo that looks a bit like me and my beautiful girlfriend kept the books. I was fishing less, but more and more people liked my jerky. I wasn’t sure but this was looking less and less like retirement.

    Finally, in 2006, “Wayne’s Jerky” became available for Wisconsin residents. At first, local bars carried my beef jerky. Then, area grocery and convenience stores picked it up. I also sold directly to my customers at both the Green Bay Farmer’s Market on Broadway and the Downtown Appleton Farmer’s Market.

    Now Wayne’s Jerky is sold in over 40 grocery and convenience stores in Northeast Wisconsin. Since Wisconsin summers are so short and more and more people are asking to buy jerky directly from me, I felt the time was right to make my jerky available online. Now you don’t have to worry if you miss the markets or your favorite flavor sells out at the store. You can get Wayne’s Jerky anytime.
