Join the 4R Family

Chef/CEO John Rivers started a barbecue ministry 15 years ago in his garage to help a young girl battling cancer. Encouraged by its quick growth, he left his 20-year corporate career to pursue his passion for cooking and serving others.

Today, the ministry that started in a garage is now a fast-casual, Texas-style barbecue restaurant company with 15 locations and counting! We still hold a firm belief we are here to serve others and look for prospective employees who not only have a servant’s heart but a passion to lead others in a fast-growing, family-owned company.

Our core values — servitude, integrity, faith, consistency, intention, exceptional, and creativity — help separate us from our competitors, and by investing in the development of our people and promoting from within, we ensure our core values are instilled from the start.

We currently are looking for motivated individuals to join something more than a restaurant — to be part of the 4R Family.
