PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. — Kingmade Jerky announced a multiyear partnership with the PGA Tour that will make the company the “official jerky and official meat snack” of the tour.
The jerky is made with premium, grass-fed flank steak that is formulated with less salt and sugar than many traditional meat snacks. Kingmade Jerky is available in Classic, Buffalo and Sweet Chili flavors.
Kingmade was founded in 2012 in the home of golf caddie Jeff King, who eventually started bringing his jerky to the golf course. It soon caught on with fellow caddies and players.
"A couple of players tried it and said it was the best jerky they had ever tasted and a few weeks later, other players were asking for my jerky and started sending me flavor ideas," King said. "I worked hard to refine the recipes that players had given me to make the healthiest, best-tasting jerky ever. Demand soared and realized I was onto something big."
Kingmade also announced a recent capital investment from Jacksonville, Florida-based Bushwood Investment Partners LLC.
"Kingmade Jerky is a natural fit for the PGA Tour and our players," said Matt Iofredo, vice president of licensing & merchandising with the PGA Tour. "We share a commitment to health, active lifestyles and quality, and we look forward to working together with Kingmade to share this product with our fans."
