“H&K” are the initials of lifelong friends Hogan and Kyler, who named their company with the facetious notion that their BBQ rubs were a one-time thing and people wouldn’t be seeing any more in their future. But what H and K hadn’t thought through was that if you make something that tastes out of this world, you’re going to have to make more of it and more of it and more of it.
Hogan and Kyler’s friendship was rooted in generations of family relationships, as their grandfathers first became friends in the 1950’s of Northern Kansas. Hogan and Kyler were family friends all the way up until high school, where they became friends on their own volition and not just because their parents brought them to each other’s houses. During that time, Hogan got a job working for a family friend in catering, where they cooked some of the best pulled pork sandwiches Hogan had ever tasted. It was when Kyler jumped on board with the catering job where two old friends decided to make the small batch bbq spices in bulk as a hobby. When they sold over 120 bottles of rub on a whim at their high school graduation party, they thought maybe they had something more with this rub than just a hobby. But when reality set in that it was time to go to college and start a career, they left their rub behind.
After college, people were still inquiring about that amazing rub Hogan and Kyler had at their graduation party. Since they had educations in both entrepreneurship and cooking, they thought they might take a chance on the rub that people kept pestering them about. Although still both working day jobs, Hogan and Kyler are devoted to the success of their company and enjoy being able to work side by side with their best friend. They have also recruited their buddy Nick who has become the “creative engine behind the future of H &K.” And I think our future is in store for a delicious treat.
