Chef’s Cut Real Jerky Co.® Co-Founder Dennis Riedel

In this episode Michael and Justin sit down with Chef’s Cut Real Jerky Co.® Co-Founder Dennis Riedel.

Dennis takes them through the early days, when he was caddying alongside fellow co-founder and chef Blair Swiler, who shared his homemade jerky and the inspiration for Chef’s Cut Real Jerky was born.

From selling their first batches of products in plastic baggies at New Jersey’s Bayonne Golf Club & Callusa Pines Golf Club, to being named the 58th fastest-growing privately owned U.S. company and the 4th fastest-growing in Food and Beverage on the 2017 Inc. 5000 list, their success is nothing short of legendary.

Blair Swiler needed a break from the kitchen. He was caddying alongside co-founder Dennis Riedel and shared his homemade jerky with him. Real cuts of premium beef, right there on the golf course, was all Dennis needed. And with some convincing, Chef Blair shared his recipe and the pair began smoking and selling Chef’s Cut Real Jerky Co® to golf and country clubs across the U.S.
