Investment Summit keynoter Maria Rivera on how she’s growing Smalls Sliders

Rivera is keynoting NRN’s Investment Summit alongside Walk-On’s founder Brandon Landry and 10 Point Capital managing partner Morven Groves.


Nation’s Restaurant News is excited to host its second-annual Investment Summit this Oct. 8-9 in Nashville. The event, which leads into CREATE: The Event for Emerging Restaurateurs (Oct. 9-11), gives founders and leaders of emerging restaurant concepts the opportunity to learn from and network with members of the investment community.

Keynoting this year’s Investment Summit is Maria Rivera, CEO of Smalls Sliders; Brandon Landry, founder of Smalls Sliders and Walk-On’s Sports Bistreaux; and Morven Groves, managing partner with 10 Point Capital. The three will share how 10 Point has been a strategic investor in the Walk-On’s and Smalls concepts, and how that investment has helped to launch the brands onto the national restaurant scene.

In this encore episode of Take-Away with Sam Oches, Rivera sits down with Oches in her Atlanta office to share the story of Smalls Sliders and the opportunity that the franchise has for national growth.
