Beef Jerky Outlet Makes Donation to J.J. Watt Hurricane Relief Fund

Portion of sales from all 100 locations to be donated on behalf of local Houston-area owner.

September 05, 2017 // Franchising.com //Following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey to the Houston area, Beef Jerky Outlet, a national franchise with multiple locations in Texas hosted a national day of giving on September 2nd, where portions of sales from ALL 102 locations were donated to J.J. Watt’s Hurricane Relief Fund.

Corpus Christi Beef Jerky Owner Joe Guerra was so touched by Watt’s pleas on social media, he suggested to the corporate offices that Beef Jerky Outlets Day of Giving support Watt’s cause. As a result a total of $12,998 was raised and will be donated on behalf of the Texas owners that were impacted by this horrific storm.

Clint Hall’s three local Beef Jerky locations in the Houston area were closed for days after the storm. Hall, a Houston Texans fan, was thrilled to hear about the day of giving initiative and wanted to help out as much as he could.

“So many people in our area were impacted, we just wanted to find a way to give back,” said Hall. “Our Texas owners along with our corporate team really stepped up and with the help of our owners around the country, we are happy to be a part of what JJ is doing for this cause.”

As of the Beef Jerky Outlet Day of Giving, Watt had raised more than $15 million.

“Our owners all wanted to jump in and help out any way they could,” says Kathy Raines, Chief Operating Officer of Beef Jerky Outlet. “We pray and offer our condolences to the families who are grieving for loved ones lost in this horrific disaster.”
