Our Story


THE JOURNEY TO PEAK NUTRITION STARTED 5 YEARS AGO IN OUR KITCHEN IN DENVER

OUR STORY

Jawbox Jerky was born from a backyard barbecue challenge among friends: can we make a better, tastier, healthier jerky than what’s available?  That night, Jawbox co-founder Jay Lane went home and ordered a dehydrator online.  

And the next day Jay’s neighbor and Jawbox co-founder, Chef Devin (Devo) Beck, stopped by his local butcher to buy top-grade, grass-fed beef. Later that day, the very first batch of Jawbox Jerky was created.

From the beginning, our biggest fans were athletes. Today, Jawbox powers over 50 professional and collegiate programs in their quest for superior performance. Our amazing jerky is also enjoyed by thousands of people who seek nutritional snacks of the highest quality – whether to recover and refuel after a workout, or just to relax with a delicious, protein-packed snack.

OUR MEATS

From the very first batch, our jerky has been unique for using only the highest-quality meats. Today, our beef still comes from free-range, grass-fed and -finished Angus cows, sourced from ranches across the United States. Our chicken jerky uses the healthiest free-range chickens – never injected with antibiotics or hormones.

Simply put, grass-fed beef and free-range chicken are better for you. They have all the protein, but are leaner, rich with vitamins and minerals, and free of harmful additives and fillers.

Jawbox Jerky is dedicated to sourcing the highest-quality meats in the United States. We feel this is the best way to make delicious, healthy jerky, and the most responsible way to run a company.

OUR FLAVORS

When we say “Athlete Inspired Jerky,” we mean it. From the beginning, Chef Devo has hand-crafted every recipe with the utmost passion for creating delicious jerky of the highest quality. Today, Chef Devo works closely with our athlete customers to learn what they crave, and continues to create amazing flavors using only natural ingredients, with minimal processing and the highest-quality meats. 

Turns out, athletes have great taste, and we can thank them for Peppered, Korean BBQ, and Buffalo. Each flavor is still prepared in small batches, with only the purest unprocessed ingredients to maintain our high standards when it comes to flavor and nutritional goodness.

We hope you’ll try them all. And if you have suggestions for new flavors, don’t hesitate to reach out to us.
