WE PROUDLY PRODUCE PICKLES THAT PACK A POWERFUL PUNCH. THEY’RE PLANTED, PICKED, PREPARED AND PACKAGED BY THE PLEASANT PEOPLE AT OPPORTUNITY KNOCKS. IT’S A PRETTY PERFECT PLAN. IF YOU ASK US.
Knockout Pickles is a seed to jar artisanal pickle business that started in 2014. In addition to offering employment for our Warriors and a supplemental revenue stream to OK, we are committed to crafting a really dill-icious pickle!
In truly organic form, we tested our pickling hand inside of our culinary programming initiative. We developed a recipe, production method and jarring technique that could be perfected by our Warriors and scaled as the business grew. We leaned on the passion of our staff and food partners. Like most things at OK, each of our businesses developed organically out of our Warrior-focused program efforts in the culinary arts.
As planning, shopping and meal prep are integral components of all our programs, it was a natural extension that our enterprise efforts would capitalize on these important skills. It was also imperative that our Warriors would be involved in all facets of the business operation, from sales and marketing to production and distribution, so that such skills could be utilized in the pursuit of other vocational interests.
In our first year, we sold 400 jars of pickles at special events and our holiday order. Today, we are selling bulk buckets to a growing list of local restaurants as well as individual jars at several retail outlets in the area.
