NEW YORK, Jan. 27, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Chef's Cut Real Jerky, the company re-defining the jerky industry, today announced a sponsorship agreement with PGA Tour professional and organic fan of Chef's Cut Real Jerky, Kyle Reifers. As part of the agreement, Reifers, who turned professional in 2006, will help build brand awareness by wearing the Chef's Cut Real Jerky logo on his golf shirt during tournament play, participating in branded programming, and communicating the products' attributes.
"We started Chef's Cut Real Jerky with the mission of changing the way people think about jerky," says Blair Swiler, Chef and co-founder of Chef's Cut Real Jerky. "As a company that originated and grew in popularity on the golf course, we're excited to work with Kyle, who is not only as passionate about golf as we are, but also believes in the quality of Chef's Cut Real Jerky as much as we do."
Chef's Cut Real Jerky uses hand-cut premium steak, turkey and chicken combined with simple, real ingredients smoked to perfection. A slow marinating process results in a tender jerky unique to the category, infused with robust flavor. Chef's Cut Real Jerky is low in fat, gluten-free, and provides 12 grams of protein per serving.
Reifers' introduction to the brand resulted from his quest to find a high protein snack to eat during rounds of golf. "For a few years I've struggled to find the perfect protein snack to eat during a round," explained Reifers. "I've tried protein bars, protein shakes and even turkey subs, but found they were either inconvenient or resulted in fluctuating energy levels out on the course. Jerky is perfect for me because it's lower in sugar than other snacks, is low-fat and high in protein. With Chef's Cut Real Jerky, the proof is in the flavor and texture. Not only are there a variety of great tasting flavors, it's also the most tender jerky I've had."
Chef's Cut Real Jerky was co-founded by golf buddies Blair Swiler and Dennis Riedel, who viewed jerky as the perfect golf bag accessory but were disappointed in the options on the market.
Currently sold in golf clubs nationwide, Chef's Cut Real Jerky is also available for purchase at select retailers, Chef's Cut Real Jerky and Amazon. For more information on Chef's Cut Real Jerky, visit www.chefscutrealjerky.com
