Meat America

Oct 9, 2020

You won't want to miss this episode of Meat Americas as we sit down with Dave Raymond founder of Sweet Baby Rays Barbeque Sauces and his nephew, Duce Raymond who runs day to day operations for their Chicago area restaurants and catering company.

If you've BBQ'd then it's highly likely you've used Sweet Baby Ray's to turn up the tasty at your home. However, you've never likely met the founder Dave Raymond ...he doesn't sit down very often in front of a camera and we're grateful he agreed to sit down with us. Dave is an incredibly smart, successful and humble guy who shares a lot of great advice about business and life. We also get to hear from Duce Raymond, a trained chef, who provides more insight behind opening the restaurants and catering company.
