August 27, 2013 // Franchising.com // Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise is excited to announce the Grand Opening of a new store in Springfield, Missouri on Friday, September 6. The new Springfield location is the second Beef Jerky Outlet Franchise store for owners Bob and Debbie Hathaway. The store is located at 228 West Sunshine Street in the Sunshine Corners shopping center. The Beef Jerky Outlet is a unique national franchise specializing in all kinds of high-quality beef jerky from original to blazing hot and specialty snack foods.
The Grand Opening celebration will commence with a ribbon cutting ceremony at 11:00 a.m. on Friday with the Springfield Area Chamber of Commerce. The celebration will continue with a remote radio broadcast from the store parking lot from 4:00-6:00 p.m. put on by US 97, Springfield's classic rock station.
Grand Opening special attractions will include a prize drawing for a $100 gift certificate to Bass Pro Shops and a PETA (People Eating Tasty Animals) T-shirt give away every half-hour during the broadcast. Customers will also receive a free Beef Jerky Outlet logo can cooler with every purchase made during the Grand Opening. Free sampling is a regular feature of all Beef Jerky Outlet stores.
The Hathaways opened their first Beef Jerky Outlet store in the heart of the Branson, Missouri entertainment district last year. The Branson store was so successful that Bob and Debbie decided to take advantage of the Beef Jerky Outlet’s unique franchise opportunity and open a second store in Springfield.
"The jerky outlet is located in a busy retail center directly across from the 'Granddaddy of All Outdoor Stores,' the original Bass Pro Shops store,” owner Bob Hathaway said. “We expect to draw a lot of business from the retail traffic. And our next door neighbor is the Whole Hog Cafe, an award winning BBQ restaurant. "
Beef Jerky Outlet stores have the largest selection of beef, turkey and wild game jerky found anywhere. The store offers free samples for those who like to taste a wide variety of flavors before purchasing. Walking into a Beef Jerky Outlet store, customers will be surprised by the wide selection of flavors. The bulk jerky is set out in authentic covered barrels for sale by the pound. The unique flavors include everything from original to "blazing hot" to jalapeno and honey barbeque.
Paul Lyons, a founding partner of Beef Jerky Outlet, puts it best,
“When folks see the store their eyes light up; they want to get in and see what it’s all about. They come inside and there are 100 or more different kinds of jerky, including exotics like alligator and kangaroo. We have some other items, too--sausages, gourmet popcorns, hot sauces--but make no doubt about it: Beef jerky is the primary focus.”
