Steak Shapiro will be one of our distinguished Guest Sharks. Most of us know Steak as one of the most respected and dynamic personalities in Atlanta.

Steak continues to be a larger than life local and national personality with shows on the Food Network (Food Truck Face-Off and Best Ever) and frequent contributor to CNN, FOX NEWS, FOX BUSINESS, and MSNBC.

In Atlanta, his hometown, he serves as host of TV’s Atlanta Eats, Dish Worth the Drive, and the #1 sports talk show in the city, “The Front Row” on 680 The Fan. There are few people that understand the business, marketing and entrepreneurial world with the depth of Steak Shapiro.
