the entire 4R family is excited to expand our
Barbecue Ministry to the world class entertainment complex at ONE DAYTONA,” said John Rivers, 4R Restaurant Group Founder/CEO. “Never have there been more 4 Rivers fans rallying for their own Smokehouse than in the greater Daytona Beach area. The new location will provide a great opportunity to not only serve them, but also partner with International Speedway Corporation, a company that shares our passion for giving back to the community.”

The 4 Rivers Smokehouse at ONE DAYTONA will create approximately 50 new local jobs. The 6,500 square-foot restaurant will offer seating for 280 guests, full-service catering/delivery and a bar that serves beer and wine upon completion.
