A conversation with Dr. Frank King about his businesses Carolina Bison and King Bio, about what’s changed since we last talked to him six years ago, and about the importance of getting back to basics.
Editor’s Note: Our September/October 2012 issue carried a profile of Dr. Frank King, “The Secret to a Ripe Old Age,” in which the naturopath/chiropractor talked about discovering the clear health advantages of bison meat over regular beef and subsequently establishing Carolina Bison. Part-tutorial on the history of bison in America and part-advocacy for a healthier lifestyle for everyone, the story was immensely popular among our readership, making King a natural fit for our “updating the file” series of revisits with previously profiled Western North Carolina entrepreneurs.
Both Carolina Bison and its companion homeopathic medicines company, King Bio, Inc., have grown considerably since that original story, from the vast amount of acreage Carolina Bison commands and the number of restaurants and grocery stores where you can find bison meats, to the Dr. King’s by King Bio product lines that are offered and the public recognition and awards that King Bio has notched.
