Premium Elk USA
Premium Elk USA is an existing vendor for Sysco Foods that sells to restaurants, grocery stores and direct to consumer. New owners are planning national expansion and a spin off of the first national elk jerky brand. 50% less calories than beef.
My name is Allen Hardage and I have spent my career operating and marketing food businesses with great success. In 2013 while serving as Category Merchandiser for the nation’s largest food distribution company I discovered a remarkable company selling delicious farm raised, grass fed elk meat to fine dining restaurants. After leaving my contract I took the company on as a marketing client and was soon asked to buy the business from it’s 74 year old owner.
Premium Elk USA has already made inroads to three large national restaurant chains in addition to taking over the existing Sysco Foods Service contract (Sysco has over 600,000 clients in the US and Canada). We offer a full line of premium meat cuts, ground venison and will be creating a national brand of healthy elk jerky. America is hungry for a lean healthy organic meat that is both delicious and guilt free and Premium Elk USA has what they crave. In fact currently we import more than 900 metric tons of elk meat from New Zealand each year.
I am looking for an investment of $500,000 to move the business from Minnesota to Atlanta, the nation’s restaurant headquarters capitol. This money will also be used to launch a national brand of meat snacks into the fasted growing snack segment in the nation. According to Forbes meat snacks represents $2.9 Billion and is expected to see double digit gains for the next five years. We have the expertise, the product and the clients, what we need now is the right investor.
