We have a great show today. We are meeting with Mike Porter of Bacon Bros. Public House. Started in Greenville South Carolina, Bacon Bros. Public House features a straightforward, made-from-scratch menu. Bacon Bros. Public House's offer delicious, quality food at an incredible value. A cure room with a viewing window is located in an area of the dining room so guests can see what meats are curing. The decor is warm and rustic with recycled pallet wood throughout the dining room, a nice compliment to Bacon Bros.' accessible fare and is fitting with the restaurant’s recycled, local first theme. Simply put, Bacon Bros. is a best bet for a fun, relaxed dining experience with friends and family or to meet pals after work for small bites. The restaurant also offers a great selection of craft beers, cocktails and dynamic wine options.
Every Business Has A Story
Serial entrepreneurs Eric Bergelson and Mike Porter, along with Chef Anthony Gray and Jason Callaway, are the Bacon Brothers. Porter and Bergelson decided to branch into the restaurant business and teamed-up with Gray and Callaway in 2012. In one of their early meetings, Callaway brought bacon he had fried that morning at home and transported it in a mason jar that he placed in the center of the table where they were gathered. The four men started snacking and talking about their love of bacon. As the pieces quickly disappeared, they realized they had a concept and name for their new restaurant.
In part two, we will play a clip from our popular Great Quotes in Franchising podcast.
