Hi, I'm John Franklin, the founder of Tre' John's LLC

I'm originally from Valdosta, Georgia and I have always been passionate
about food and flavors. Growing up, I spent a lot of time cooking with
my father, who made some of the best BBQ ribs I've ever tasted. He was my biggest inspiration, and I learned a lot from him about creating unique blends of spices to enhance the flavors of different food.


My Story

After my father passed away, I wanted to keep his legacy alive and decided to start my own business. That's when I created Tre' John's LLC, named after the third descendant of my grandfather. I relocated to Atlanta, Georgia, and started working towards my dream of becoming a successful entrepreneur.

My family and community were my first taste testers when I started creating my own BBQ rubs. My dad's rubs were always sweet, with a base of sugar and garlic. Once I developed my first product, the John John's Sweet BBQ Rub, within three weeks, I had developed the rest of my seasoning line, including the Pepper Salt, which is perfect for ribs and chicken, Steak Seasoning, which is awesome on brisket, and the Italian Seasoning, which is great on pasta.

Aside from running my business, I'm also heavily involved in my community. I participate in local clean-ups and collect clothes for the less fortunate. It's important to me to give back to the community that has supported me throughout my journey.

The Future

I'm always experimenting with new flavor combinations and working on new products.  Keep an eye out for sauces coming soon! Working in the
co-packing industry since 2015 has taught me how to scale my products
and bring them to a larger audience. I sell my rubs and seasonings at pop-ups, festivals, and even in a local grocery store.

Thank you for visiting my website, and I hope you enjoy trying my delicious rubs and seasonings as much as I enjoy making them.
