Jack Link’s will be featured on The HISTORY Channel’s series, Modern Marvels, on Sunday, March 21 at 10p ET / 9p CT.
Representatives from Jack Link’s told DrydenWire.com that the segment will take viewers behind-the-scenes of the New Glarus facility to look at the making of Jack Link’s meat sticks. It will also touch on the brand’s history – rooted in Wisconsin – as well as the product innovation and team members.
The employees featured in this episode, according to reps from Jack Link's, "represent a culture of relentless entrepreneurs with an uncompromising commitment to quality, a bold optimism and a can-do spirit."
The foundation at Jack Link’s was laid in the 1880s, when Jack’s great-grandfather, Chris, came to America from the Old Country and settled in the wilderness of northern Wisconsin. Tucked away in his belongings were some of his most prized possessions – his sausage recipes.
Today, Jack still lives in Minong, WI and works side-by-side with his son, Troy Link, to craft high-quality, delicious high-quality protein snacks.
I don't know about you, but when I rip open a bag of Jack Link’s meat snacks, I get a taste of American tradition: a family-owned business that grew from hard work, high-quality products, a sense of community and a little fun (note: although Jack Link's isn't paying us to say that, we hope we get a free bag or two of Jack Link’s meat snacks in the mail none-the-less).
Can't wait to watch it tonight: My favorite HISTORY Channel series featuring my favorite meat snacks. It's gonna be cool.
