How much should I order?
The size of your order depends on the number of students in your group and how many items you want them to sell. Since Original Beef Jerky come 48 units to the case, consider dividing up each case for every 1-2 students. Round up to the next case number if needed.
You can also use our ‘Profit Calculator’ at the top of the page.
Do you take back unsold product?
We do not accept returns. Our goal is to maintain the same high level of product freshness for every customer. The USDA also has very strict guidelines that we must adhere to.
TIP: Consider issuing unsold beef jerky to students who volunteer to sell them in exchange for a portion of the profit.

A good source of protein, they’re a popular gluten-free and keto-friendly snack.
Is there a minimum order?
There is a 1 case minimum order requirement.
How much money can we make?
Estimating your profit is easy. Consider the following example.
A sponsor with 56 students wants everyone to sell 24 units:
56 students x 24 units / student = 1,344 unitsThe profit would be 45% because you would need to order 28 cases (Volume discounts apply):
1,344 units x $3.00 / unit = $4,032.00 gross sales
$4,032.00 x 45% profit = $1,814.40 profit
1,344 units ÷ 48 units / case = 28 casesQUICK TIP: Enter your group size and student goal into our ‘Profit Calculator’ located in the top right sidebar.
