"Innovation, high quality and consistency are major attributes of the Bridgford Foods company, and those are qualities I value in a company I represent," Clausen says. "I am looking forward to working with Bridgford’s marketing team to increase sales of their premium Pepperoni and Beef Jerky products as well as continue to elevate their overall brand awareness.
"I really like the people at Bridgford Foods and think this is a great fit," Clausen adds. "I will be proud to represent them as I look to qualify for my 10th Forrest Wood Cup in 12 seasons."
"We are excited and honored to have reached a long-term agreement with Luke Clausen," says Bridgford Foods Vice President Allan Bridgford. "In the future, Luke will be an integral part of Bridgford’s professional angling team. In addition to being a Forrest Wood Cup and Bassmaster Classic champion, Luke’s business savvy and impeccable reputation embody Bridgford Foods’ commitment to integrity and our reputation of being ‘The Premium Brand.’ Bridgford’s industry-leading sales growth in the Pepperoni and Beef Jerky business has been phenomenal the last few years. We attribute a large part of this success to our unique marketing program and association with professional bass fishing."
