National jerky retailer’s newest location opens in Monroe

Beef Jerky Outlet has opened its newest Ohio location at Cincinnati Premium Outlets in Monroe.

The new store offers more than 100 varieties of premium jerky — from traditional flavors like beef or chicken to exotic edibles like kangaroo, alligator, and wild boar.

Specialty flavors include Moonshine and Cajun with a wide range of mild to wild, plus a selection of hot sauces, seasonings and marinades.

Dan Walls, the store’s owner, said the brand’s concept is popular because of the wide variety of flavors.

“You can also try the most of the jerky before you can buy it, which makes us a little unique,” Walls said.

All jerky is cured in Tennessee and Michigan and made in small batches, according to the company.

Founded in 2010, Beef Jerky Outlet is the country’s first national jerky franchise. There are now more than 100 Beef Jerky Outlet locations nationwide.
