KAUKAUNA — A new shop specializing in beef jerky, gifts, craft items and more, is holding its grand opening Saturday, March 2, 2024 in Kaukauna.

Christina Leanne’s Beef Jerky & Things is located at 370 E Ann St, Kaukauna next to the Piggly Wiggly.

The store opens Saturday at 11 a.m.

The owner, Christina, moved to the area two years ago with her children. She says she loves food and absolutely loves jerky.

“One day I made my own and it was to die for,” she said.

That’s when she decided she wanted to create and make her own brand that she could share with the community.

“I wanted to build a legacy that would make my kids and my family proud of. I’d like to say any jerky lover would agree that my jerky makes their stomachs smile and leave them wanting more,” she said.

Each purchase at the grand opening will receive a ticket for a door-prize drawing.
