Kinda Jerky

Really Nutty


A Cut Above the Rest

Kinda Jerky Really Nutty (KJRN) sold its first bag of jerky on April 15, 2014. Since then, the brand has expanded to offer over 20 varieties of craft jerky meats, more than 10 assorted gourmet trail mixes, and now, nut butters.

Prior to launching KJRN, our founder worked in medical device sales, spending long hours on the road snacking on what he believed was a healthy option — store-brand jerky. One day, his wife commented on the unpleasant smell of the snack, prompting him to examine the nutritional label. He was surprised to discover the presence of preservatives and nitrites, along with a recommendation to refrigerate after opening.

Determined to offer a healthier alternative, KJRN created an all-natural formula using grass-fed, free-roaming animal farms as sources for ingredients.

KJRN aims to be the go-to snack company, offering high-protein options, complex carb trail mixes, and delicious nut butters that are sure to satisfy. Give our brands a try — you won’t regret it!

Hi, I’m Evelyn. Since working with KJRN, I’ve enjoyed attending numerous fun and exciting events while building valuable industry connections. Our jerky is conveniently shelf-stable, eliminating concerns about excess inventory after an event (although, that’s rarely a problem!). The jerky comes prepackaged and sealed, so there’s no need to worry about preparing recipes or managing much overhead. And, to top it off, our jerky flavors are delicious! Many customers go out of their way to let me know how much they enjoy it. Some even come to events just to find me!

AJ Berarducci

My name is AJ Berarducci, and I was born and raised in Pittsburgh, PA. Currently, I attend Slippery Rock University as a Business Major. Both of my parents were involved in sales, and my dad pursued his own entrepreneurial ventures. Growing up in this environment, I developed a love for people and a desire to follow in my family’s footsteps.

In 1918, my great-grandfather immigrated to the United States from Italy and brought with him an Italian cookware manufacturing business. Being a fourth-generation entrepreneur is something that I am passionate about. Having witnessed the workings of the food industry through my dad’s brokerage business, I knew that KJRN would be a fantastic fit for me to get my start in the industry.

I wanted to represent a brand that shared my core values and dedication to following in my family’s footsteps, and KJRN was just that brand.
