Our Journey

Welcome to Papa Jacks Marinades!  We're Charles and Alexis Wilson, and our passion lies in helping you elevate your culinary experience.  It is the driving force behind each bottle of marinade that we create. 

We share a deep passion for cooking, and it's what inspired us to create Papa Jacks Marinades. We wanted to simplify the cooking process for everyday cooks as well as professionally trained chefs, to help with ensuring tender, juicy, and delicious results every time. Conventional marinades merely flavor the surface of the food, leaving us wondering, "Why?" After years of research and experimentation, we finally cracked the code, developing Papa Jacks—a revolutionary product that infuses flavor deep into the food itself.  Allow us to share a little bit more about each of us.

Charles – The Flavor Creator

My journey into the world of cooking was sparked by my great-grandfather, the original "Papa Jack." His secret recipes set me on a 10-year quest to uncover the secrets behind his legendary cooking.

I love the art of crafting our marinades and pour my heart and soul into each recipe.  My goal is simple: to tantalize your taste buds and infuse your foods with unforgettable flavor!

Alexis – The Flavor Translator

As a busy wife and mom, my mission has always been to make the art of cooking accessible to everyone. I believe that every cook, regardless of experience, can create dishes that not only taste good but that also bring people together.

Be it a casual weeknight supper or a memorable gathering, I'm dedicated to ensuring our marinades effortlessly elevate your cooking experience!

Our Shared Vision

At Papa Jacks, we believe in the power of natural ingredients, the magic of balanced flavors, and the warmth of shared family meals. Our marinades are a testament to our commitment to quality, authenticity, and the joy of good food.

Savor the flavor and enjoy the journey!
