ACCOUNTABILITY

To take radical ownership for your actions is to hold yourself accountable when it comes time to do the “right thing” in the “right way”. We value accountability because it shows itself the moments during training and promoting a positive work environment when it is the most crucial to yourself and others.

MATTHEW

OWNER

Matthew is an ambitious self-starter who thrives on bettering himself, others, and the local community. He is the founder of Smokin Thighs, LLC, and focuses primarily on smoked and grilled poultry products without using a fryer.

 

After graduating with a recording engineering degree in 2002, Matthew took a turn in his career path by working in sales for the local Nashville manufacturing industry. Though he enjoyed his job and fellow co-workers, his friends and family that continually complimented him on his ability to make some great grilled food in any kitchen. Matthew has had great success in the past and uses that momentum with Smokin Thighs LLC, Full Time.

 

Matthew has lived in Nashville over 1/3 of his life, and currently lives in South Nashville. When he isn’t at the smoker and grill, you can catch him boating on Nashville’s Percy Priest Lake or helping plan one of the next events in Nashville that will surely be the talk amongst friends.

LANDON ALLEN

GENERAL MANAGER

Landon is the type of guy that puts his heart into everything he does and treats it like it is his own. Being the General Manager of both of our Smokin Thighs locations is no different. He is originally from Ohio and moved here when he was 19. He has lived in Nashville for over 20 years and has been in the restaurant industry since he was 16. Making his career in the industry 24 years in total.

 

Landon spent a few years as a motivational speaker as well as a youth mentor. Using that skill set, he focuses on the culture of Smokin Thighs being one of positivity and growth for every employee.

 

When he is not focusing on Smokin Thighs tradition of great food and a Cheers type of customer service, you can catch him with his new bride, Amanda. They will most likely be spotted in one of Nashvilles new breweries or supporting a new local restaurant.
