FM On Demand with Tara Fitzpatrick: Sam’s Club chef leads like a lion, roars with responsibility

Executive Chef Danny Concepcion gets us up to date on his cutting-edge culinary projects and ideas, plus his thoughts on true leadership.


Chef Danny Concepcion has been featured in FM many times. He’s always ready with cool new culinary ideas and projects. As Executive Chef at Table 29 at Sam’s Club Home Office in Arkansas, Concepcion makes every meal out of the ordinary. Recently, an old school steak pop-up got everyone at Sam’s talking (and eating). A family man, Concepcion takes leadership very seriously, and shares his own weight-lifting journey on social media and gets his family involved with exercise, too. Teamwork is a part of so many aspects of his life! He’s very inspiring to talk to, and we get into several culinary topics, along with the dry-aged steak. Concepcion’s life has taken him from Puerto Rico to NYC to Vegas and now Arkansas, and along the way he’s absorbed many different cultural flavors. We talk about his connection to Puerto Rico, and how a themed day ended up having healing powers.
