A brief look at Shurky Jurky via the Portland Business Journal:

 

PBJ: How did you get the idea for your product? beef pork and turkey jerky

Shurky Jurky: I began crafting artisan jerky in 2009 when my passion for smoked meats and jerky led me to create my own product due to the lack of high-end artisan jerkies available on a commercial basis to retail consumers. I was working as an investment banker at the time. When I brought in samples of our product, people went crazy for it and asked me to make it for them. That's when Shurky Jurky was born.
