Our Story

The founder of BANDERA BAR, Joey Paulk, is an avid outdoorsman and a registered professional hunting guide, wilderness connoisseur and even a regular at the gym. He has spent a majority of his life outside.

Growing up in New Mexico, Joey was fortunate to have the beautiful Rocky Mountains and some incredible National Forests as a backdrop to his adventures (Gila and Lincoln National Forests are just a few).

He has logged thousands of miles on his two feet, discovering all the beauty that the outdoors has to offer.

He has also spent countless hours in the gym to keep up his endurance and physique for those times that he could not be active outdoors.

Researching foods that benefit and hinder the physical performance was a daily occurrence to ensure Joey was maximizing his energy during physical activity.

During his time outdoors, he realized that a majority of the energy bars available, do not actually have the quality ingredients that one would expect in the world we live in today. They are most definitely not designed with performance in mind.

Most bars are made to appeal to the taste buds, have a laundry list of unpronounceable ingredients, or ingredients that do not benefit the human body at all. Some ingredients could actually be harmful! Most of the energy bars that he had eaten in his lifetime were not the total package.

Helping the body perform at its peak during physical activity was why BANDERA BAR was created.
