Rivals On Five TestimonialPosted: Apr 14, 2014
Stone Mountain's Hottest New Sports Bar
I went to ACityDiscount, and was lucky enough to meet a very good salesman by the name of Mike Ellin who took care of my list of needs, and was instrumental in helping us get this open at the price we wanted to get it open at.
Rivals on Five is one of Stone Mountain, GA’s best new restaurants. What started as an idea between a group of four friends in 2012 quickly gained steam. Owners Lee Burton, Scott Marshall, Dr. Will Draper, and Executive Chef Jon Allen wanted a neighborhood gathering place with quality food, drinks, and atmosphere, and grew tired of having to travel far away from their homes in Lilburn, GA. After some discussion, the four decided to make one.
The four friends wanted a relatively casual environment in their new establishment, and decided to opt for an upscale public house / sports bar theme for their bar. The name Rivals on Five alludes to “The Battle of Five Forks Trickum!”; a high school sports rivalry between local school districts Brookwood and Parkview that owes its namesake to the intersection the restaurant is located on. All four owners have ties to one school or the other, and the restaurant encourages fans of all sports rivalries to come in and root their respective teams to victory.
Executive Chef Jon Allen first heard of ACityDiscount when it was featured on Spike TV’s “Bar Rescue” in October of 2013. After seeing the show, Chef Allen visited ACityDiscount, and was greeted by Showroom Manager Mike Ellin. Mike gave Chef Allen the royal treatment, and he did not fail to notice. After their first positive experience, Chef Allen and the other owners have been shopping with ACityDiscount ever since.
The team at Rivals on Five has purchased a wealth of equipment for both their kitchen and dining area. Some of the items purchased include (but far exceed): clean and dirty dishtables, refrigerated prep coolers, deep fryers, bar coolers, ice machines, and a wealth of smallwares and shelving.
ACityDiscount is proud to have helped the owners of Rivals on Five get their business started on the right foot, and wishes them great success in the future!
