Travis Davis-Johnson is a God-fearing man, a husband, father, and business owner. He is also a man on a mission who is attempting to make an impact on the world with his delicious foods. He is the owner of TNT B-B-Q in Nashville, TN. TNT is an acronym for his name along with his wife’s (Travis and Temperance). Together, they serve barbeque, hot chicken, fish, and a host of other soulful sides including macaroni and cheese, green beans, sweet potatoes, and more.

Travis began his business in June 2017. “My wife noticed my passion for barbecuing. The response from everyone who had tasted it was always good. She has an entrepreneurial spirit and encouraged me to begin selling my food. I was a little hesitant at first, but eventually listened to her and now here we are,” he says.
Travis enjoys making food that pleases the mouth. He believes that everyone has an appetite for good eats. He is just doing his part by bringing what I create to the table.

One of the biggest challenges Travis faces is obtaining a central location that will allow him to serve the masses. He is currently developing plans to do that which will change the dynamics of his business and allow his existing customers and new ones to come to a centralized location and enjoy TNT B-B-Q more often.
His life and career has been impacted mostly by his aunt, Betty Davis. “She is impeccable on the grill and I wondered how she got the food to taste so good. My curiosity provoked me to begin grilling and experimenting myself, and I haven’t been able to quit,” he says. His wife has also played a huge role into the progress and overall existence of TNT B-B-Q. “She is a true entrepreneur and really understands the dynamics of business. She has translated those attributes to me and I now have a better understand of how to manage our business,” he says. His children, Travis Jr. and Travis III play a significant role in his life also. “They make me step my game up and keep me focused and motivated. I work really hard to make TNT B-B-Q successful because their future is connected to the business,” he says.

Travis offers some advice to others who may be thinking about starting their own business. “Stay focused and motivated. Even when things don’t look favorable, don’t give up. Always have faith that God is directing your steps and He will never leave you nor forsake you,” he says. He is currently working on launching a product line of sauces and spices for TNT B-B-Q including flour, hot chicken seasoning, BBQ sauces and more.
