Rodizio Grill Announces Its Fourth Location in Utah

05/22/2017

This summer, Rodizio Grill will open its fourth location in Utah, at The Shops at Riverwoods in Provo. For 20 years, this authentically Brazilian brand has been known in Utah for its uniquely traditional cuisine, service, and family-friendly atmosphere. "I was thrilled when Riverwoods approached me with the opportunity to bring Rodizio Grill to my hometown of Provo," said David Knighton, owner of Rodizio Grill – Provo. "I've always loved this community, and have enjoyed working with the owners of the Shops at Riverwoods."

Knighton's roots run deep both in Utah and Brazilian culture. He grew up just 2 miles from The Shops at Riverwoods, and played Little League Baseball on the very land where the Riverwoods offices now stand. Provo was his home throughout his childhood and adolescence until, during high school, his father was asked to serve a 3-year LDS Church assignment in Rio de Janeiro and the entire family moved to Brazil.

There, Knighton's love for Brazil, its people, and its culture began. He continued his Portuguese immersion by serving for 2 years in Portugal and Cape Verde, Africa. At the end of his travels, Knighton returned to Provo to pursue higher education. Knighton holds a BA in Economics from Brigham Young University and an MBA from the Marriot School of Management. He has been with Rodizio Grill since 2004 and also owns locations in American Fork, UT and Pensacola, FL.

With locations at Trolley Square, American Fork and at Utah Motorsports Campus, Rodizio Grill is well-loved in Utah for its authentic and affordable Brazilian dining experience. The unique concept features tender, rotisserie-grilled meat carved tableside by traditionally-dressed Gauchos. An award-winning salad bar treats guests to original salads, seasonal fruits and vegetables, and authentic hot side dishes.

The brand also boasts an unparalleled selection of fresh-pressed tropical juices, homemade Brazilian Limeades, signature cocktails and Brazilian wine. The experience culminates in a selection of exclusive, homemade Brazilian dessert not found anywhere else. And just as superlative food is important in Brazilian culture, so is commitment to family. Because of this, Rodizio Grill offers special promotions for family celebrations such as birthdays, weddings, and other milestones. The Rodizio Grill email club provides these exclusive offers and more. Families looking for a different dining experience will find it in the three annual promotions Rodizio Grill features, which introduce limited-time menu items alongside the traditional meats and salads. Dining at Rodizio Grill transforms dinner from a meal into a memory.

"We are very excited to add Rodizio Grill to The Shops at Riverwoods," said JJ Haering Director of Leasing. "We have worked tirelessly since 2009, on transforming the center into a stronger community asset. We feel Rodizio Grill recognized this and will be a very powerful addition. We could not be more thrilled to have Rodizio Grill join us!"

Rodizio Grill – Provo is located at the Shops at Riverwoods. The nearly 7,000 square foot dining space will offer several private and semi-private spaces to accommodate both small and large group dining. Established in 1995, Rodizio Grill® The Brazilian Steakhouse™ is the first authentic Brazilian steakhouse in the U.S., founded by Ivan Utrera who wanted to bring this popular Brazilian Churrascaria concept, along with cherished family recipes, to the USA from his home country of Brazil. Utrera is also a graduate of Brigham Young University. Rodizio Grill's all-inclusive menu offers unlimited Brazilian sides, over 30 gourmet salads, and rotisserie-grilled meats and grilled items, carved tableside by Rodizio Gauchos.
