This is National Small Business Week and we are visiting with SBA Award Winner, Famous Five Dining Inc. - TN Small Business Person of the year.  

Famous Five is the Tennessee franchisee of Famous Dave's of America - legendary pit barbeque. Founded in 2001, Famous Five owns 5 locations and they employ over 300 people.

The owners of Famous Five are a very uncommon combination - two married couples - Michael and Tamara Lister and Douglas and Laurel Renegar.  This team has experienced great success, while challenging many of the traditional business rules, such as doing business with friends and family.

They like to say they have broken every rule but one; don't step out unless you step out with Faith. Famous Five has been in business for over ten years and the owners credit their success to their Faith and Trust in God.  

The couples remain committed to praying the Prayer of Jabez over their next steps: Lord bless us indeed and enlarge our territory.  May your hand be upon us.  Keep us from evil that we may not harm others. And Lord, Grant our request this day.

The founders came up with the name Famous Five from their FIVE company principles: Faith, Family, Friends and Famous Food.

This show will be one of the most engaging, entertaining and informative on SBR.  Don't miss it.
