POWERED BY GAME CHANGERS
SEPTEMBER 06, 2014
TELLEY ANTHONY
EXECUTIVE VICE PRESIDENT | THIS IS IT!
Telley Anthony and Shelley "Butch" Anthony
Father and Son "Restauranteers" Butch and Telly Anthony are not only the faces of This is It! BBQ & Seafood but the masterminds behind its success. They were voted Best BBQ in America at the Steve Harvey Hoodie Awards. They also received the Self-Made Millionaire's Award at the  Financial Empowerment and Philanthropy Global Summit. While those mentions alone are enough to changer the game they are best known for their outstanding customer service and their famous Rib Tips. The service to others is vested in their family pride developed and perfected through almost 30 years of preparing and serving quality food. Their strong Christian faith is the driving force behind all they do and proudly exhibited in their leap of faith to remain closed on Sunday. When asked where their employees are on Sundays, "Hopefully at church and with their families. I promised the Lord in 1997 that if He would make our business work, we would work 6 days a week allowing our our employees to attend church on Sunday and be with their families.  Today we have only one location which opened in 1989 that is still open on Sunday.  I am believing that we will be able to close this location on Sunday as well, allowing those employees the same opportunity."

Executive Vice President, Telley Anthony will join us on Saturday to tell us why there's not a better value for the amount of food and flavor you get. Telley will share with the listening audience how following their faith and family values has allowed the family to hit immeasurable milestones like being able to "create a welcoming atmosphere where every customer knows they are important and have our respect." The This is It! brand is a staple in and around Atlanta for great BBQ & Seafood. Hear the game changing recipes for soul food that goes beyond the kitchen to a family legacy they will not outgrow.
