The Hot Seat 

What began as a man’s love for the ‘art of brisket’, has become Florida’s most successful BBQ chain.  After retiring as president of a billion-dollar healthcare company, in 2009, John Rivers opened his first 4 Rivers Smokehouse which now has 13 locations in Florida and one soon to open in Atlanta.  Restaurant Business named John one of the Power 20 Leaders in the restaurant industry and he was a finalist for the Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award in 2013. He has appeared on numerous television shows and has been featured in national publications and he will be taking the Hot Seat to share his journey with you!
