Everyone deserves a second chance, right? The owner of a Rockford restaurant is a firm believer in that statement. He's been giving 2nd chances since his restaurant's doors opened..

Dickey's Barbecue Pit owner, Ryan Meek, told WIFR he's been hiring workers with criminal background from the very beginning."

"A lot of places don't give you that opportunity they just look at your background on a piece of paper rather than your person."

This is an admirable mindset that many businesses and people should try to adapt into their own lives. Ryan Meek told WIFR it's something he's always done and will continue to do.
