Four out of five is good, right? We packed our Stickit beef sticks with world-sourced ingredients from four out of the five major food groups with no room for additional, unnecessary filler that you can’t pronounce. StickIt beef sticks contain lean meat, vegetable, fruit, and grain.


Together, Tom Nicholson, surgeon co-founder and father-in-law, Bob Ritchey, started a Scottish Highland cattle farm. As a small family farm, they supplied healthy beef to local farmers’ markets. They formulated a beef jerky that was popular and packed with flavor. However, coming from a family of doctors, it was important to create a new beef product that was healthier than beef jerky.



A surgeon from Pennsylvania along with opinions from his family full of doctors, created a meal replacement for active people with no time to sit and eat. The combination of six simple ingredients (beets, bananas, brown rice, chia seeds, sea salt and beef) became StickIt beef stick. A healthy snack that has no sugar, low calories, high protein and low carbs.

STICKIT NOW: The final partnership

The final step in the process was to incorporate professional business experience and unique packaging design to enable Stickit to succeed. Tommy turned to his best friend, Jim Osmolinski. Being a successful self-made businessman for over thirty years in the packaging industry, Jim provided business insight, creativity, and resources necessary to the Stickit company. The partnership thrived from their ability to balance eager creativity and hard-nosed business experience to form a fantastic product. The Stickit beef stick symbolizes the friendship and bond Jim and Tommy developed over their years of persistence and dedication to creating a snack anyone could enjoy.
