“Ever since opening the first 4 Rivers almost fourteen years ago, we’ve heard a large outcry from Lakeland residents asking us to open a Smokehouse in their city, and it’s always been a goal of ours to do so,” said John Rivers, 4R Restaurant Group Founder/CEO.

“We’re honored that Publix has given us the opportunity to open a Smokehouse in its beautiful Publix GreenWise Market complex in Lakeland, which bridges the gap between our nearest locations in Kissimmee and Tampa. We are thrilled to bring our barbecue ministry to Lakeland where we are neighbors with Publix, a company that shares our commitment to giving back to the community.”
