Jack Link's donates funds to supply a new, state-of-the-art scoreboard
Minong, Wis. (October 21, 2013) - While Jack Link's® Beef Jerky is known for its award winning "Messin' With Sasquatch" advertising campaign, the company is doing anything but messing around when it comes to giving back to the community.
Jack Link's, meat snack category leader, will present a $15,000.00 check to the Underwood School District on Friday, October 25 prior to the high school football game at 7 p.m.
"The donation from Jack Link's means a great deal to our school district, particularly our baseball program," said Lewie Curtis, Activities Director, Underwood School District.
...
"Having a great working relationship with Jack Link's makes us proud as a school community."
The funds recently donated to the Underwood School District will help support the school's baseball team by providing a brand new, state-of-the-art scoreboard.
"Supporting the communities where our employees live, work and raise their families is very important to Jack Link's," said Jack Link, CEO, Jack Link's Beef Jerky. "We're proud of our long history of giving back to local school districts, and we're very excited to extend this commitment to the Underwood School District as well as the residents and school district of the area this year."
This is the first year Jack Link's will have the honor of donating to the Underwood School District. The distribution center in Underwood, Iowa was a very recent acquisition for the company.
"The presence of Jack Link's in our community has been a tremendous experience," said Curtis.
...
Donations from Jack Link's open up opportunities that simply would not be possible otherwise."
Each year, Jack Link's hosts a golf tournament in which vendors, customers, local supporters and Jack Link's employees come together to raise funds in support of education. The 2012 tournament, held this past August, raised funds for the donation to the Northwood Education Foundation as well as donations to school districts in five other communities in which Jack Link's has facilities, including Minong, Wis., New Glarus, Wis., Alpena, S.D., Mankato, Minn., Laurens, Iowa and Underwood, Iowa.
This latest contribution from Jack Link's builds upon the Wisconsin-based company's longstanding tradition of corporate philanthropy. Over the past decade, the brand's charity golf tournament has raised over $800,000 in support of education.

Link honored for tasking risks and growing Jack Link's Beef Jerky into a snack food powerhouse; according to Ernst & Young, risk-taking and innovation are key to entrepreneurial success
PALM SPRINGS, CA, NOVEMBER 14, 2010 /PRNewswire/ - Jack Link, CEO, Jack Link's Beef Jerky, was named the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2010 national winner in the Retail & Consumer Products category. Now in its 24th year, Ernst & Young's Entrepreneur Of The Year® is the world's most prestigious business award for entrepreneurs. The award encourages entrepreneurial activity and recognizes leaders and visionaries who demonstrate innovation, financial success and personal commitment as they create and build world-class businesses.
Link was recognized for growing Jack Link's Beef Jerky from a small beef deboning operation in 1986 to the No. 1 U.S. meat snack brand. Link was honored at the Entrepreneur Of The Year® gala, the culminating event of the Ernst & Young Strategic Growth Forum in Palm Springs.
...
"Jack Link embodies this willingness and more. By constantly pushing the envelope, and responding to consumers' needs and changing behaviors, Link has grown Jack Link's Beef Jerky into a snack food powerhouse. Jack Link is very deserving of the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2010 award in the Retail and Consumer Products category."
Lessons learned along the way
Jack Link was destined to be an entrepreneur. His father and uncles, known as the "Links Brothers," owned and operated a number of businesses in and around the small town of Minong, Wis. As a boy, Link followed his father everywhere, learning all about cattle, the meat business and how to make the best meat products possible. After earning his business degree, Link returned to Minong and honored his heritage by supplying top quality beef to stores and restaurants throughout the region.
In 1987, he formed Link Snacks and distributed meat snacks to local convenience stores. By the 1990s, Link Snacks had begun producing Jack Link's Beef Jerky and distributed the product to retailers nationwide.
The demand for convenience
As consumer demand for convenient, high-quality snack food increased, so did the company's offerings, including a wide variety of shelf-stable products in various sizes, forms, flavors and textures.
Less than five years ago, Jack Link's share of the meat snack category was a respectable 27%. Since then, with a strong, strategic marketing program in place, accompanied by a solid sales and distribution network, the Jack Link's brand has achieved a 50% market share. Today, Jack Link's is the No. 1 brand of jerky.
Looking forward, the company has an aggressive plan in place that sees it growing by 15% annually through 2015.
Positive power of business
Link attributes the growth and significant increase in market share over the past five years to quality, perseverance, timing and an unwavering confidence in his product.
Link's core philosophies have evolved into "Jack's Way," which began with the premise that product quality begins with soap and water. Jack's Way promotes clean plants and a safe working environment for employees, which Link believes lead to an excellent product experience for customers.
Beyond the workplace, Link is involved in Students in Free Enterprise, an organization started by the late Sam Walton that creates a better, more sustainable world through the positive power of business. Link is also a main supporter of the Northwood Education Foundation, which helps raise money for local northern Wisconsin K-12 schools. To date, he has raised more than a half million dollars for the foundation, including more than $100,000 in 2009 alone.
Entrepreneur Of The Year® 2010 National Finalists in the Retail and Consumer Products Category
