Headquartered in Kawkawlin, Michigan, Dore Corporation is a family owned company with 15 business locations. Started by Fred Dore the First in 1976, the business began as one service station/convenience store – less than a quarter-mile from the farm his family had operated for over 75 years.
With Fred’s sons involved, the company continued to grow, reaching the size of 5 stations. In 1992, they acquired a store in Alger, Michigan that was well known for its jerky. This was when the idea of The Jerky Outlet began to take shape. The brothers determined that they should offer a variety of jerky, sausage, cheese and other quality snacking options that both travelers and locals would enjoy.
Since then, The Jerky Outlet has grown to 9 locations in Michigan. Understanding that many of our visitors are not from the area, we wanted to make delicious jerky available to any household in the continental U.S. This brings us to our website, which we’re so glad you’ve found. Take a look at our online store to see which products sound delicious, but be prepared – picking just one or two flavors can be a challenging task. Give our products a taste and we know you’ll agree.
