John Swift will tell you he might not know how to cook, but he knows good food. Swift has been all over the world and has found some great spots. His friends will call him up and tell him what country they are in and he will tell them where to go eat.

Swift, from the Dallas area, officially landed in Beaumont in 2003 with his wife, Suzanne. He’s worked for oil and gas companies, and bought meat and futures contracts for national restaurant chains. Now, he’s a first time restaurateur with Republic Chicken.
