TV show hosted by Raising Cane's CEO visits Richard Rawlings in Dallas
One of Dallas' hottest celebrities is being spotlighted in a new TV show. The show is called Secret Sauce, and it's hosted by Todd Graves, the multi-millionaire CEO of the Raising Cane's chicken restaurant chain.
On Saturday, March 25, they'll air an episode in which Graves interviews Richard Rawlings, founder of Gas Monkey Garage in northwest Dallas, and himself a television vet as host of Fast N' Loud, the Discovery Channel series that documented Rawlings and his crew as they bought, restored, and sold old cars.
Secret Sauce is a new show that debuted on the A&E channel on March 4. It follows Graves meeting people from all walks of life, profiling business owners and celebrities who share the "secret sauce” to their differing paths to success.
In the Dallas episode, Graves joins Rawlings at Gas Monkey Garage to talk about cars, careers, and making it in the TV industry.
It begins with Graves driving up to Gas Monkey Garage in a red Cadillac with a license plate "CANES 1" — a car that Rawlings' company restored.
They share Rawlings' trademark Lite beer while Rawlings talks about his early career choices and his relationship with his father.
In the episode, Graves also visits Mia's Tex-Mex where he interviews owner Mia Enriquez; then joins K104-FM radio host Lady Jade, to find out about her Project 16 nonprofit which teaches career skills to high school students.
At Mia's, he and Enriquez share an "Mia's Platter" appetizer plate, followed by an order of Graves' favorite dish, the brisket tacos.
His visit with Lady Jade stops in on an etiquette class where the kids learn how to tie a tie and the best way to eat soup in a restaurant. They use the skills at a meal at Al Biernat's North.
"I want to teach them real world skills," Lady Jade says.
In addition to Dallas, the show visits cities around the country including Chicago, Austin, Atlanta, Baton Rouge, LA and Nashville. Guest appearances include Snoop Dogg, Lauren Alaina, Kendra Scott, Jalen Ramsey, and Danny Trejo.
