About Us

Uncle Zips Beef Jerky originated out of Fayetteville, North Carolina the home of Fort Bragg and the 82nd Airbone.  William "Zip" Howell started making his authentic family beef jerky recipe right out of his home for many years for his family, friends, and local bars before Uncle Zips Beef Jerky started in 1999.  The company got its name from Mr. Howells reputation as "Mr. Zip" working as a yellow page salesman who made quick deals.  Over the years his nickname became the face of the company and later grew to be known as "Uncle Zip"  when his son Kenny took over the family business and turned Uncle Zips Beef Jerky into a hometown favorite.
