Eugene Kang:

Country Archer Jerky Co. 

What’s a good road trip without great snacks? For Eugene Kang, a road trip stop for beef jerky sparked his entrepreneurial journey to become the co-founder and CEO of Country Archer Jerky Company, a brand you might recognize from the shelves of Starbucks, Target, Whole Foods, and Costco stores across the country. 

Growing up working in his parents’ gas station convenience stores, Eugene was familiar with popular snack options and with the hard work needed to run a thriving business. Following a record year of growth in 2018, Country Archer was included as one of the fastest-growing private companies on the Inc. 5000 list and Eugene was named to the 2019 Forbes 30 Under 30 List in the food and drink category.
